Myofascial release (MFR) therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. It's a very gentle, but effective way of treating chronic muscular soreness and joint pain.There are a number of conditions and symptoms that myofascial release therapy addresses.
Many patients seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip, or virtually pain in any area containing soft tissue.
Other conditions treated by myofascial release therapy include Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia or migraine headaches.
Patient symptoms usually include:
Tightness of the tissues that restricts motion or pulls the body out of alignment, causing individuals to favor and overuse one hip or shoulder.
Patients experience a sense of excessive pressure on muscles or joints that produces pain.
You may experience pain in any part or parts of the body, including headache or back pain.
