Myofascial Release Physiotherapy And Massage
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique
that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial
connective tissue restrictions to
- relieve/eliminate pain
- induce muscle and tissue relaxation
motion in our muscles.
“Myo” refers to the muscle, and “fascia” refers to
the smooth-and-tough tissue that covers all our body's muscles. In a
normal healthy body, the fascia is relaxed and soft, and can stretch and
move without restriction.
However, our myofascia becomes tight and restricted when
our body experience
- physical trauma or
- inflammation of the fascia
Trauma such as a direct blows like hits or falls, car accidents, whiplash or habitual poor posture can have a
cumulative effect over time that tightens our fascia.
In fact, trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures
create myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of
approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive
structures that unfortunately does not show up in many of the standard tests
(x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
release is applied directly on the body and uses slow and sometimes deep
pressure to restore the proper health of the fascia. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous
flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure)
applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia)
The use of Myofascial Release Therapy allows us to look at each
patient as a unique individual.
Our one-on-one therapy sessions are
hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of
Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy.
What we do is that via myofascial release, combined with other movement therapies and stretches, we promote
independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement,
self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved
flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.
has been used effectively in the treatment of the following conditions:
Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin
with or without oils or creams.
There will not be any machinery ever.
This enables the therapist to
accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the
appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release
of the fascia.
