Myofascial Release Myofascial release therapy is a hands-on therapeutic technique that applies a light, stretching pressure with specific directions into the fascia to release the fascia from surrounding tissue to which it may have become fastened. Fascia, a basic component of the muscular-skeletal system of the body, is a tough connective tissue which contains a substance that is normally gelatinous-like and slippery. Over time and through trauma, inflammatory processes or poor posture, cross restrictions can occur within the fascia which can cause this substance to become solidified, thus, shortening the fascia fibers and pulling on pain sensitive areas. This creates symptoms of pain and restriction of movement. Addtional information: Myofascial Release. Myofascial Trigger-Point Therapy.
