Active Release Technology - has anyone tried it? if so, any feedback, good or bad? thinking about going in for my shoulders, but it's expensive ($250 initial consult/session, $150 each session thereafter).
I've been having ART for about 3 years now. Mostly on my neck and shoulders. My personal experience has been very positive. It significantly helps my mobility and eliminates/reduces pain. I found that after a few visits, you need to go less. I'd recommend trying it a couple times. Mine was covered under my insurance though.
It depends on the nature of the injury. ART is a good place to start if the injury isn't "serious". I went through ART treatments and found it gave temporary relief, ~48 hours, but after a year they finally discover a torn supraspinatus. So the ART therapy wasn't the answer in my case.
You must live in a large metro area, as I would have to agree those prices look quite steep.
