What do shin splints, tennis elbow, shoulder strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, plantar fascitis have in common? You guessed it: They are all repetitive strain injuries and can be treated using a patented technique called ART or Active Release Technique(R) .
ART is a hands-on, movement-based, soft tissue technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. There are many conditions that can be resolved quickly and often permanently with ART.
Scar tissue can build up and adhere tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue accumulates, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.
Dr. Vermander uses his hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of these soft tissues. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific movements. This technique has over 500 specific treatments all of which are unique to ART. This is not a cookie-cutter approach and has a high success rate.
Dr. Vermander is certified in Full Body ART and Long Tract Nerve Entrapment ART treatment protocols.
