Active Release Techniques (ART®) is a hands on, touch based and non-invasive treatment for soft tissue injuries that allows the practitioner to pinpoint the location of your injury and focus the rehabilitation process accordingly.
"In 2014 I was exceeding all of my endurance goals, completing my first Ironman, and finishing in the top 10 of my USAT age group in the state... until an injury had me sidelined. Of course Mike Danenberg was the first one I went to help "fix me," but little did I know there was more going on in my body than the surface pain I was feeling. After a month of consistent ART treatments, we were able to dig in deeper and figure out why I wasn't seeing results. In addition to weekly ART treatments, I began a consistent strength regimen. The first day I could barely lift my right hip off the ground. With time and dedication to the plan, I began to see improvements. 3 months and I began to train again, with the help of Mike's running gate analysis and tweaks. 5 weeks later I am not only 100% back, I am stronger than I have ever been. I've gained 14% in threshold on the bike, and completed a new personal best in a 5k. It wasn't an overnight fix, which at times was very frustrating, but I am stronger now because of it. I continue to dedicate two mornings a week to my strength training at Performance Therapy NC, one of the best investments I have chosen for myself because I know it will pay huge dividends as the 2015 season begins."
