What is Myofascial Release?

   Myofascial Release is a highly interactive stretching technique that utilizes feedback from the client's body to determine the direction, force and duration of the stretch and to facilitate maximum relaxation of the tight or restricted tissues. It facilitates the body's inherent ability to correct soft tissue dysfunction.

   When using Myofascial Release techniques, the therapist uses touch to sense the client's tissue tone and subsequent movement. Through this touch technique the therapist is able to detect and release subtle restrictions to efficient movement. This technique assists the client to achieve efficient and effortless movement.

Who can benefit from Myofascial Release?

   Myofascial Release is highly effective in treating patients with the following diagnoses:

• Back strain
• Chronic back pain, upper or lower
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Chronic cervical pain
• Complex pain complaints
• Dizziness, vertigo
• Fibromyalgia
• Fibrositis
• Headache
• Myofascial pain dysfunction
• Plantar fasciitis
• Post-Polio symptoms
• Thoracic outlet syndrome
• TMJ dysfunction
• Trigger points, tender points
• Whiplash

   Myofascial Release requires intense one-on-one treatment time. More traditional physical therapy treatments that are less labor intensive should always be tried first to avoid over-treatment.
