Going for a Run

Get your life back again

The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.

Treat pain and discomfort without medicine, surgery and medical procedures. 

Myofascial Release, also called MFR Release, is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.

Fascia plays an important role in the support and function of our bodies since it surrounds and attaches to all structures. In the normal healthy state, the fascia is relaxed and wavy in configuration. It has the ability to stretch and move without restriction. When one experiences physical trauma, emotional trauma, scarring, or inflammation, however, the fascia loses its pliability. It becomes tight, restricted, and a source of tension for the rest of the body. Trauma, such as a fall, car accident, whiplash, surgery or just habitual poor posture and repetitive stress injuries, has cumulative effects on the body. The changes trauma causes in the fascial system influence comfort and function of our body. Fascial restrictions can exert excessive pressure causing all kinds of symptoms producing pain, headaches, or restriction of motion. Fascial restrictions affect our flexibility and stability, and are a determining factor in our ability to withstand stress and perform daily activities.

What Problems Can Myofascial Release Can Help?

  • PELVIC PAIN
    MFR decreases tightness of tissues surrounding the pelvic and abdominal areas to eliminate symptoms.
  • PLANTAR FASCITIS
    MFR decreases tightness in the tissues of the leg and bottom of the foot to restore proper alignment of the hip bones and bones of the feet to enable pain-free walking.
  • PUDENDAL NERVE ENTRAPMENT
    By providing gentle, sustained hands-on stretching into the areas of fascial restriction, Myofascial Release can restore the necessary slack to the system to take the pressure off of the pudendal nerve. This helps to eliminate pain and improve the ability to sit, engage in intercourse, and maintain continence.
  • SHIN SPLINTS
    MFR decreases tightness and fascial restrictions of the tissues in the shins and legs to alleviate symptoms and prevent recurrence with future physical activity.
  • TENNIS ELBOW
    MFR decreases tightness of tissue and muscles in the forearm surrounding the elbow to alleviate symptoms.
  • BACK PAIN
    Myofascial Release is extremely helpful in reducing back pain, restoring the motion and flexibility of the entire spine by treating the front and back three-dimensionally and the associated pelvis which is considered to be the foundation of the spine.
  • BULGING DISC
    MFR decreases tightness in the tissues surrounding the spine to prevent further herniation and decrease pain and symptoms.
  • PELVIC PAIN
    MFR decreases tightness of tissues surrounding the pelvic and abdominal areas to eliminate symptoms.
