Myofascial Release (MFR)
Myofascial Release helps to improve range of motion and muscle balance.
What Is Myofascial Release (MFR)?
Myofascial Release is a hands-on technique that helps to loosen your tight muscles and fascia tissue. Any muscle that is shortened, or in a muscle spasm, can benefit by improving circulation, and decreasing tension and soreness. The outcome of this manual release is improved range of motion and muscle balance.
Who do you do a MFR on?
I use MFR on all age people who have muscles or groups of muscles that contribute to their muscle imbalance.
Does it hurt to have MFR?
It is that deep stretch that one can not reproduce on their own. I would not say it is painful.
How long does MFR last?
The answer is ‘that depends’. The tissue will need follow-up physical therapy to address proper biomechanics and motor control.
What types of patients do I usually perform this on?
People that present with postural faults, right or left side dominance, post-injury or surgery, and overuse or underuse of a muscle group benefit from MFR.
“The fascia forms the largest system in the body as it is the system that touches all the other systems.”
