Who are our Certified Active Release Providers?

Chris Sellers DC, Chris Olson DC,  Jonathan Shaner DC

Dr. Sellers is a Master ART provider and ART Instructor who is certified in Upper Extremity, Lower Extremity, Spine, Nerve Entrapment, Complex Protocols, Biomechanics, Active Palpation, and he is also in the Ironman Provider Network.

What is ART ?        

ART is a soft tissue movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.

How do overuse conditions occur?
Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:
  • acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc),
  • accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
  • not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).
Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.

What is an ART treatment like?

Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.

These treatment protocols - over 500 specific moves - are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.

Testimonial

Fabulous team at Performance Wellness, all the way around. They've helped every member of my family, age 9 to 51 and they work wonders with their hands and exercises. I can't speak highly enough about the entire staff. Great work and we love knowing help is just a quick phone call away for pain, injuries, strains, etc.
