What Is This Treatment?

Myofascial Release is designed to help reduce scar tissue and various adhesions that cause pain and dysfunction throughout the body. It's commonly used to manage repetitive strain injuries and is considered to be superior to the similar Active Release Technique (ART) and deep-tissue massage methods due to its tissue manipulation.

The process aims to reduce stress on your joints and nerves and manage your pain problems. Typically, it can help eliminate muscular pain and relieve tight muscles and trigger points. In addition, it's commonly used to treat various athletic conditions that commonly impact athletic performance.

How Does This Method Help You?

Myofascial Release is the process of “breaking up” dense scar tissue or adhesions. Adhesions limit normal range of motion, cause muscles to be very tight and are inflexible compared to healthy tissue. Our doctors apply careful & directed pressure, along with stretching during treatment. This treatment is surprisingly effective and will ensure you recover as much as possible from tight, tense, and damaged tissues after an acute or chronic injury. The goal of active release technique is to restore normal mobility and “glide” between muscular tissue and nerves. It can also help push joint fluid throughout the body and stimulate the lymphatic system, which helps lower inflammation
