Active Release Technique


Back in Action is an ART (Active Release Technique) based movement training facility. Our clinicians have been using ART as the best way to achieve muscle flexibility for over nine years. Our goal at Back In Action is to get you moving, keep you moving and to improve your moving pattern whether it be your profession, your sport or general life. We have found that by allowing each joint and muscle to move in all directions (3D) that we were designed to we can achieve not only more efficient pain free movement but we can enhance the quality and performance of that movement. We have taken professional athletes to a new level of competition just by giving them more joint and muscle mobility and flexibility in 3D. Their training is enhanced and performance more consistent. Our principles of evaluating and treating apply to everyone. If you have difficulty walking, running, getting up from sitting to standing, throwing a ball, jumping or kicking we can help! If it hurts when you move, we treat when you move.
