Myofascial Release Therapy
Myofascial release (MFR) therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. There are a number of conditions and symptoms that myofascial release therapy addresses. Many seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip, or virtually any pain in any area containing soft tissue. Techniques such as gradual pressure on fascia helps to regular muscle tone, assist in pain management as well as improve overall joint movement. Other conditions treated by myofascial release therapy include, carpal tunnel syndrome, or possibly fibromyalgia or migraine headaches.
