Course Description

Active Release Techniques® Lower Extremity Level 1 is designed to provide instruction in anatomy, palpation, and treatment of soft-tissue disorders and associated articulations. The course includes 62 treatment protocols and comprises two parts: 1) an online Level 1 Introduction component and 2) a live, in-person, hands-on instruction seminar. Completion of both parts is required to obtain certification.

Attendees learn how to identify and effectively treat common issues that involve the lower extremity such as plantar fasciitis, shin splints, compartment syndromes, patellofemoral pain, iliotibial band syndrome, piriformis syndrome and many more. ART® treatment utilizes manual techniques to move tissues and joints while under tension. The system allows for relative motion between the tissues and articulations.

The course emphasizes the manipulation of the neuromusculoskeletal system to diagnose and correct alterations in tissue texture, tension, movement, and function between tissues. All treatments protocols are designed to correct tissue alterations, assist the provider with articular adjustments, and ultimately shorten treatment regimens required to resolve a case. Evaluation and treatment occur simultaneously.


  • By the end of the seminar, the provider will be able to effectively palpate and treat 62 soft-tissue disorders and associated articulations using appropriate tension, depth, and motion to properly perform the treatment process.
  • By the end of the seminar, the provider will be able to correctly move the muscle from its shortened position to elongated position.
  • By the end of the seminar, the provider can successfully assess the soft tissue structures and differentiate between healthy and unhealthy tissue utilizing hands-on palpation techniques.
