Myofascial Release and Manual Therapy
Myofascial release relaxes and normalizes trigger points in the fascia, the body’s sheath-like, fibrous tissue that encases all muscles, nerves, bones, blood vessels and organs. Fascia, normally pliant and flexible, protects these internal structures and supports normal, coordinated movement. When fascia becomes restricted due to poor posture, injury, repetitive movement, poor nutrition, dehydration and stress, restrictions occur that can cause pain and immobility as well as increase the risk of injury. Myofascial release eases these restrictions to improve movement patterns and overall well being.
