Myofascial Release (MFR) is a highly effective, manual therapy technique that focuses on the entire fascial system. Using gentle, sustained pressure to the fascia (connective tissue) MFR releases the “straightjacket” effect of tissue that compresses vital systems and restricts motion, thereby helping to relieve pain and restore motion. MFR has been effectively used to treat many symptoms including, but not limited to, muscular pain and tightness, scar release, TMJ dysfunctions, migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and a myriad of women’s health symptoms.
Myofascial Release also adds an important dimension to women’s health and Pelvic Floor Syndromes by addressing pelvic dysfunction. Over time, the pelvic floor muscles and other muscles within the pelvis and abdomen often tighten in reaction to pain, resulting in a weakening of these structures and limiting their ability to function properly. Left untreated, this pain cycle increases in intensity and duration and begins to affect the patient’s overall health and well being. Internal manual therapy, utilizing MFR techniques and movement therapy, provides a non-surgical alternative that not only treats the symptoms but uncovers the cause of the symptoms as well By treating each patient individually and identifying the structural imbalances within the fascia, long term changes can occur, allowing the patient live without the painful symptoms.
