Minor Pec Tear - Can ART Help?

On Fridaynight I sufferred wat appeared to be a minor pec tear in my left pec right below where it ties into my shoulder. I did it 7th rep of 245. Does anyone have any experience with Active release and this type of injury. I have to pay out of packet as insurance doenst cover ART providers in NYC.

I am seeing an ART practiioner for my shoulder, and results have een excellent. i don’t know if it will help you, beacause you have actual damage, but it may be worth a shot.

I think where you really might see some benefit from ART is after the tear has healed. A good ART practitioner will be able to break down any scar tissue much faster than traditional therapy, such as ultra sound.
