Myofascial release (MFR) focuses on releasing fascial shortness and tightness. There are a number of conditions and symptoms that myofascial release therapy can address. A thorough analysis of posture and movement efficiency can often reveal where the problem lies because where the pain is felt is often not the site of the dysfunction.
The body is made up of hundreds of muscles which are all covered and connected by fascia. Restriction in a one part of the body will cause compensation above and below that restriction causing excess force on joints and adjoining structures.Many patients seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury, or if experiencing ongoing pain. MFR is very effective for the following common complaints.
