Here is an example of a Standard Definition of Carpal tunnel:
"At the base of the palm is a tight canal or “tunnel” through which tendons and nerves must pass on their way from the forearm to the hand and fingers. The nerve that passes through this narrow tunnel to reach the hand is called the Median Nerve. This narrow passage between the forearm and hand is what we call “The Carpal Tunnel”
However, this description misses over 18 other common nerve entrapment sites that can result in carpal tunnel-like syndrome. The most common site of nerve entrapment is actually further up the arm, in a muscle called the Pronator Terres .
Errors in diagnosis and treatment techniques often contribute to the chronic and severe nature of what is commonly referred to as Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. Statistics show that bracing (often prescribed by doctors) causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome to worsen .
Active Release Technique® (ART®) has been shown to be very effective in the treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Rather than just addressing just one area, ART® restores unimpeded motion and function to all soft tissues. At our clinic, we have experienced a success rate that exceeds 90% for the treatment of Carpel Tunnel.
The ART® Soft-Tissue Management System provides a way to diagnose and treat the underlying etiology of Cumulative Trauma Disorder that causes symptoms of numbness, tingling, burning, and aching. Trained providers are able to diagnose the presence of abnormal inflammation and adhesion by examining tissue texture, tension, and movement.
The ART® Soft-Tissue Management System has a success
rate that surpasses 90%. We believe that the ART® Soft-Tissue Management
System is the future of CTD care.

The Goal of Active Release Technique
The goal of ART® is to restore optimal texture and motion, restore the function of the soft tissue and release any entrapped nerves or blood vessels. This is accomplished through the removal of adhesions, or fibrosis, in the soft tissues via the application of specific protocols. Adhesions can occur as a result of acute injury, repetitive motion, and constant pressure or tension. ART®eliminates the pain and dysfunction associated with these adhesions.
We have recently published the first book about Active Release Techniques, written specifically for the general public.
