Active Release Technique (ART) for Hip and Low Back Pain

Our certified ART therapist Gigi is performing this Active Release Technique on a patient with pelvic organ prolapse, hip and low back pain. She’s helping to release her hip rotators (see our previous posts on why this is important in the management of hip and back pain as well as pelvic floor issues such as peeing in your pants when you run/jump/cough/sneeze). She had immediate relief and reported that she “didn’t feel crooked anymore”. Then we followed up our treatment with some muscle re-education using Pilates. We taught her how to control her spine and pelvis while strengthening her hips muscles.
