What Is Myofascial Release and What Is It for?

Inside our bodies are many different types of tissue.  One of these tissues, called fascia, is responsible for holding everything else in place. Unfortunately, sometimes fascia does its job too well, and ends up causing us pain along with restricting our mobility by binding our other tissues too tightly. When this happens, it's best to contact a chiropractor who provides myofascial release, like Dr.Teunissen, to restore your range of motion and relieve pain.

While chiropractors are mainly known for performing spinal and other manual adjustments, they have many more techniques available in their repertoire.  One such technique is myofascial release. Myofascial release treatments are not the same as massage, despite both procedures appearing to be similar.

How Is Myofascial Release Performed?

Myofascial release is done by hand.  A trained chiropractor will use her hands to gently stretch a person's fascia by pulling and pressing on a patient's skin.  This technique is performed without the use of any oils, creams, waxes, or other lubricants, as an essential aspect of myofascial release is friction. Without friction, a chiropractor cannot accurately gauge how much force to apply during treatment.
