What Is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial release is a soft tissue treatment that aims to reduce pain, tension, and tightness caused by the myofascial tissues in the body. These tissues are situated under the skin and surround muscles, ligaments, and tendons that become tight due to overuse, bad posture, surgery, injury etc. Through gentle stretching of rigid areas, your medical provider will aim to release pressure near trigger points where you feel the most pain. Our medical providors focus on the broader network of muscles surrounding trigger points to reduce the tension throughout your body, providing much needed relief. Myofascial release treatments benefit patients with pain in areas such as the neck, shoulders, arms, back and legs.
