Active Release Techniques® (ART®)

Active people are often afflicted with neuromusculoskeletal (nerve, muscle, skeleton) problems stemming from injury or overuse. Spinal and extremity pain are almost always a combination of soft-tissue (muscle, tendon, ligament) and joint problems. “Dr. Jay” quickly returns such patients to their active life-style.

His work is best described as treatment by Active Release Techniques® (ART®) to treat contractures of muscle (myofascitis), tendon (tendinosis) and ligament secondary to repetitive stress or frank injury. These pathologies usually present as inhibitions of range of motion (ROM). This work also addresses neuritis/neuralgia secondary to the entrapment or compression of peripheral nerves in afflicted soft tissue. Chiropractic manipulative therapy (CMT) is used as necessary to reduce subluxations associated with the inhibited ROM. Also, microamperage, ultrasound and ice are used as necessary. Dr. Cook has taught ART® for more than 10 years.
