Dr. Douglas Krefman has become a full body Active Release Techniques (ART®) certified provider following his completion of the spine, upper extremity and lower extremity courses.
Active Release Techniques is the gold standard of soft tissue treatment for sports injuries. This soft-tissue management system is based on the principle that muscles, nerves, fascia, and tendons develop adhesions within and between them after cumulative injuries. These adhesions cause the motion of muscles or joints to be altered, resulting in a wide variety of symptoms including pain, weakness, reduced range of motion, numbness and tingling. With over 500 patented treatment protocols, ART® is used to treat a variety of conditions including plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, headaches, muscle strains, rotator cuff syndrome, and TMJ. ART® is also used to treat post-surgical scar tissue and peripheral nerve entrapments like carpal tunnel syndrome. Many times patients can be successfully treated without surgical intervention.
