Dr. Kyle Worell is Manhattan and Westchester’s Choice for Active Release Technique (ART®) for Soft Tissue Injuries

We take a personalized approach to soft tissue injuries, which includes ART® ‐ it is not a one-size fits all therapy. We find the specific problem and work to correct in the most appropriate and effective way for each individual patient. Dr. Worell’s focus is to return patients and athletes to their activity or sport of choice as quickly and safely as possible.

What does ART® or Active Release Technique do and what conditions does it help?

  • Tennis Elbow/Golfer’s Elbow
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Back Pain (Mechanical LBP, Piriformis Syndrome, Sacroiliac Dysfunction)
  • Sciatica
  • Shin Splints
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Ankle Sprain/Strain

  • Repetitive Stress/Overuse Injuries

What happens during an Active Release Technique (ART®)?

Every ART® treatment session at our clinics, Dr. Kyle Worell, D.C., PC in Manhattan and Spine, Sports & Lifestyle Wellness in Westchester, involves a combination of examination and treatment. After initial evaluation and consultation, Dr. Worell will evaluate the soft-tissues related to your condition based on texture, tightness, and movement of the muscular, tendinous and fascial structures.

ART®’s treatment protocols, which include more than 500 specific moves, have filled a void in the management of musculoskeletal and soft-tissue conditions that is unmatched by any other technique; as such the expertise of ART® providers is highly sought after by amateur, professional and Olympic athletes, movie stars, Fortune 500 executives and insurance carriers alike.
