Myofascial Release (MFR) is fast gaining recognition as the missing link in traditional healthcare. Myofascial Release Therapy is a specialised physical therapy that affects and releases the restrictions within the fascial network.
Do you suffer from a long term injury? Are you currently seeing a therapist? Perhaps you get relief from treatment, but it is only temporary, and, after a while your pain sets back in again. Do you crave a long term solution? Myofascial release may just be it.
Myofascial treatment is safe, gentle and produces long term results. All forms of trauma create adhesions in the myofascial system that produce tensile pressure on pain sensitive structures. Massage therapy will help to relieve the symptoms caused by these fascial adhesions and so offer short term results. However, massage does not treat the underlying cause of the symptoms in the fascial network. Myofascial treatment targets and releases the adhesions in the restricted myofascial system that cause the symptoms, and produces long standing benefits.
During myofascial treatment, the physical therapist assesses the patient thoroughly. Upon diagnosis, a myofascial treatment plan is prescribed. Myofascial treatment is performed on the affected areas without oils, which allows the therapist to get a proper sense of where the fascial adhesions lie and to accurately apply the right gradient of pressure to release the fascial restriction.
