Myofascial Release is an osteopathic technique that is specifically used to address the connective tissue matrix of the body. This therapy addresses the connective tissue restrictions anywhere in the body. This gentle hands on therapy re-establishes the slide and glide quality of connective tissue which may have been lost through trauma, surgical scarring, chronic repetitive movements or sustained poor posture.
It is a form of manipulation used directly against a motion barrier (joint restriction) or indirectly positioned into a strain pattern of the connective tissues. The forces are mild to moderately heavy.
This therapy is ideally suited for those with chronic pain, acute injury or surgery recovery, repetitive strain presentations and more. The benefits are reduced pain, increased freedom of movement and a rebalance of musculoskeletal function.
