Anyone here have any luck with active release treatment

For those who are unfamiliar with ART:
ART is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system 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 often result from injury to over-used muscles.

I have had recurring knee problems, mostly due to tight leg muscles, since having an ACL reconstruction in Oct 1999. I was thinking of giving this a try, especially since it is covered by my insurance.

Does this really work or is it just hype BS? Thanks in advance.

I am a big fan of this type of treatment,
please note that i say "this type" the little ART bit is hype, but what they (as well as physio's and chiro's for years) do is quite effective.

I would say give it a try, beward, its not entirely a pleasent experiance tho, it hurts during, but is great when finished...

good luck

Go to Testosterone Magazine and search the forum for testamonials. Lots of bodybuilders and weightlifters having great success with this type of treatment (though I have no personal experience).
