Dr. Tammara Moore is lead instructor for ART® Upper Extremity course in San Jose

November 17th, 2011

SOL’s Dr. Tammara Moore, DPT, OCS, ART® will be teaching an Active Release Techniques® Upper Extremity course in San Jose today through the weekend.  Active Release Techniques® (ART®) is a unique, patented soft tissue technique with more than 500 protocols that was developed by Dr. P Michael Leahy, DC, CCSP as a way to treat problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.  How does it work?  When muscles are injured, typically due to overuse, they fill the damaged area with scar tissue, which can impair movement and cause pain.  Treatment involves hands-on manipulation of the tissue in a very precise way to restore mobility and reduce pain.  Some of the conditions that ART® can quickly and effectively resolve include: headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow.  Only practitioners who have undergone the strict testing process are certified as ART® providers.  Many of SOL’s physical therapists are ART® certififed.  For more information about ART®, click here or feel free to give us a call.
