Myofascial Release is a type of massage. It is an excellent method for improving overall health and musculoskeletal efficiency.
has a number of beneficial effects on the body and the mind. Benefits
would include the removal of toxins that can build up in the muscles of
the body, increased circulation, and increased flexibility of the
muscles as well as other connective tissues within the body.
Myofascial Release is helpful in reducing muscle spasms and trigger points. It is an excellent treatment for the soft tissue injuries so commonly seen in car crashes.
By increasing muscle elasticity, Myofascial Release improves blood and lymphatic circulation thus reducing recovery time.
When muscles or other connective tissues are injured, our bodies heal by laying down replacement tissues.
Ideally, the tissue repairs will be completed with the use of the same type of tissues as those involved in injury.
many people become so inflammed by the injury that an over abundance of
scar tissue is layed down. Depending on the degree of inflammation,
massive scarring of the injured site can occure. The scarring is not
only quite painful but also reduces the muscle's elasticity thereby
reducing the associated joint's range of motion. This reduction injoint
range of motion is thought to initiate the arthritic process.
Myofascial Release is also known to assist in the healing of other physical conditions such as back pain, headaches, TMJ dysfunction, plantar fascitis, tennis or golfers elbow, frozen shoulder, surgical recovery and sleep disorders.
