ART® Injury Care deals with known, existing, identifiable injuries to soft tissue. Its goal is to remove the cause of these injuries, and return the soft tissues to normal condition.
In contrast, ART® Performance Care is used to increase the performance of an athlete (speed, endurance, strength) by working with soft tissues to enhance their performance. Performance Care identifies unnoticed, or hidden restrictions in the motion of the Healthy Body, and removes these restrictions to restore full function to the soft tissues. Performance Care requires a good understanding of the biomechanics of the human Healthy Body.
