Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
The use of myofascial release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self-treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness. This form of soft tissue technique often greatly compliments the chiropractic treatment you may receive on site.
