Myofascial Release Therapy (MRT) is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the facial tissue-or connective tissue-to eliminate pain and restore motion.

 

Reasons like:

  • Surgical procedures often from an accident
  • An injury from work or play, or even indoors or outdoors
  • An inflammatory response like frozen shoulder caused by the injury 

Conditions and symptoms like these can cause myofascial restrictions.  Such restrictions may produce tensile pressures leading to chronic pain; a disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in your tissues that surround and support the muscles throughout your body.  Interestingly, myofasical dysfunction does not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)

Benefits of myofascial release are:

  • relax contracted muscles due to skeletal immobility and pain
  • stimulates the stretch reflex in muscles
  • improves blood and lymphatic circulation
