How ART Transforms Sports Injury Recovery
As avid sports enthusiasts on the Gold Coast, we all know the thrill of the game, the camaraderie of the team, and the sheer joy of physical exertion. But with the passion for recreational sports comes the inevitable risk of injuries. Whether it's a sprained ankle from a misstep on the soccer field or a strained muscle from an overzealous tennis match, sports injuries can put a damper on our active lifestyles. That's where Active Release Techniques (ART) come into play.
What is Active Release Techniques (ART)?
ART is a state-of-the-art soft tissue method that focuses on relieving tissue tension through the removal of fibrosis/adhesions that can develop as a result of overload due to repetitive use. These adhesions can lead to muscular weakness, numbness, aching, tingling, and burning sensations. In other words, all the symptoms that can stem from common sports injuries.
How Does ART Work?
ART involves the practitioner using their hands to assess the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements. It's like a targeted massage, but with a therapeutic goal in mind.

Finding Your Stride: The Power of Graston Technique in Overcoming Sports Injuries
In the world of professional sports, the decision to retire can be a complex one, often influenced by the cumulative toll of injuries. But for some athletes like Adam Goodes, an Australian sporting legend, retirement is a conscious choice, not a forced concession to the wear and tear on the body. In an article for The Age in 2018, Goodes remarked,
"It was my choice. I wasn't pushed out the door. Injuries weren't the reason why I retired. I retired on my own terms.”
Goodes' empowered decision underscores a crucial message for anyone facing sports injuries: control. This sense of control is also at the heart of Active Release Techniques (ART), a treatment that places power back into the hands of the patient. ART isn't just about addressing the injury itself; it's about giving patients the tools and techniques to actively participate in their recovery process.
