Active Release Technique (ART)
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/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. Dr. Dukes has worked his way up through the ranks among top level professionals in ART. He is an Elite Provider, and instructor for ART and travels twice a year to teach other professionals such as Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, MD‘s, DO‘s, Massage Therapists, Nurses, and Athletic Trainers across the nation. Dr. Dukes has had the opportunity to treat professional, collegiate, and Olympic athletes in all major sports, and travels to PGA tour events, and professional Iron Man events treating athletes just minutes pre/post competition. In his Texas clinic, Dr. Dukes regularly sees local and traveling professional athletes due to his expertise in this technique. Almost all NFL teams utilize Chiropractors or Athletic Trainers trained in ART, and the founder Dr. Leahy has been the Denver Broncos ART provider for the last 15 years.
