Myofascial Release:

Myofascial Release is a type of soft tissue mobilization therapy that addresses injuries that occur to soft tissue such as muscle and fascia. Fascia is strong connective tissue, similar to a spiderman suit, that wraps the entire body, including muscles and organs from head to toe. Individuals can injure their myofascial system through accidents, trauma, surgery, sports injuries, even with poor posture and body mechanics. The injury site builds fibers or scar tissue, which decreases the elasticity of the fascia system. When fascia gets restricted, it can compress underneath tissue such as muscle, nerves, arteries, ligaments and or tendons etc. The result is myofascial pain syndromeMyofascial Release Techinque addresses one aspect of the current problem to relieve myofasical pain, but in order to get fast and total recovery, the therapist has to release excessive scar tissue, release trigger points (nodes), decrease muscle tightness (hypertonicty).
