Myofascial release is an application of sustained pressure on the body’s fascia while moving the limbs, head, and torso in three-dimensions, in order to eliminate fascial restrictions such as hydrogen bonding. This technique has also been shown to evoke emotional patterns and beliefs that may no longer be relevant or may even be impeding a patient’s progress. Generally, an assessment is made by first analyzing the patient’s posture, followed by palpating the tissue texture of the various fascial layers. Once an area of fascial tension is discovered, gentle pressure is applied in the direction of the restriction, while moving the body to facilitate stretching and release. Myofascial release can be an effective therapy for relief of cervical pain, back pain, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, neurological dysfunction, restriction of motion, chronic pain, and headaches. myofascial release Myofascial Release is very safe and effective. It involves a hands-on technique of applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue. This gentle pressure targets restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. The sustained pressure is an essential “time element” that's necessary due to the viscous flow of myofascial tissue. Only gentle pressure, applied slowly, will allow a viscoelastic fascial medium to elongate effectively. Myofascial restrictions can be caused by trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures that can produce tensile pressures of up to 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, and other commonly used tests. Myofascial release treatments are usually performed directly on skin without oils, creams, or machinery. This allows a therapist to detect fascial restrictions with greater accuracy, and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia. Myofascial release is perfect for office workers who perform many repetitive movements as well as post surgical patients looking to regain the range of motion and flexibility they had before surgery or injury.
