There is an interconnected web of tissue which wraps and supports each structure in the body. This is the fascia. When it is functioning correctly, it allows for ease of movement and unrestricted tissue glide.
Myofascial Release Therapy aims to free restrictions in the fascial network, to allow for the tension on bones, joints, muscles and tendons to be released.
Scar tissue, or adhesive tissue, can form around the area of an injury, effectively splinting an area to prevent further injury. This is as it should be.
But eventually the tissues don't need to be immobilized any longer, and these immobilizations may cause pain at the site of injury or postural imbalances which can lead to more generalized pain in other areas of the body.
Myofascial release therapy is a very effective tool for restoring ease of movement, and we use it where needed as part of most treatment sessions.
