Myofascial release is a relatively new addition to therapy treatment choices. It is an extremely mild and gentle form of stretching that has a profound and positive effect upon body tissue. Patients find they become more mobile and often need fewer painkillers.
The biochemical, bioelectrical and neurophysiological effects of myofascial release represent a step forward for professionals and patients. This total approach, holistically incorporating traditional therapy and medicine, acts as a catalyst to yield impressive and clinically reproducible results.
Myofascial release techniques are used in a wide range of settings and diagnoses, including pain, movement restriction, spasm, spasticity, neurological dysfunction, head and birth injury, stroke (CVA), scoliosis, menstrual and pelvic pain and dysfunction, headache, temporomandibular pain, sport injuries, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and other acute and chronic pain. Demand for this technique is rising.
