What is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial Release is an Osteopathic-based therapy utilizing gentle stretches of the connective tissue, or fascia, to release abnormal tissue tensions. Myofascial Release is effective at restoring motion and provides acute and chronic pain relief.
Fascia is considered the governing layer of the body, which surrounds and connects every muscle, bone, nerve, organ, and blood vessel as one continuous unit of tissue throughout the body. By smoothing out fascia that may be inhibiting the proper functioning of nerves, blood vessels, and organs, Myofascial Release often enhances the functioning of the nervous system, increases circulation, and improves the way our organs work.
Additionally, one of the key approaches to treating misaligned muscle or bone that may be causing adverse symptoms is to treat the fascia surrounding those areas since it shapes the position and function of the musculoskeletal system.
