Do You Know What Myofacial Release is?

The myofascial release approach is a form of soft tissue therapy.

The myofascial release approach is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat somatic dysfunction and resulting pain and restriction of motion. It is a treatment which uses continual palpatory feedback to achieve release of myofascial tissues. This is proposed to be accomplished by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage, and stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles and overlying fascia. Fascia is the soft tissue component of the connective tissue that provides support and protection for most structures within the human body, including muscle.
