Myofascial Release (MFR) is a specific type of therapy.The fascia, or connective tissue, is a very densely woven specialized system that covers every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, organ and cell. We treat the fascia like a single functioning system that is interwoven throughout the patients body.
When subjected to any trauma, inflammation, or scarring the fascia loses some of its pliability. It becomes tight and restricted, causing tension and pain in the body, and these changes influence the functioning of the body. Whether caused by habitual poor posture, repetitive stress injuries, emotional tragedies or physical trauma, such as a
fall, whiplash, surgery, or an accident, the damage from these situations creates negative effects.
MFR is a very effective hands-on technique that provides sustained relief of myofascial restrictions. By relieving these restrictions we promote proper body mechanics, posture and movement, which improves strength, flexibility, and postural awareness. The combined result allows the patient to reduce and/or eliminate pain and restore function.
