Myofascial release therapy is a combination of stretching, active muscle contraction, trigger point, and range of motion work. This type of therapy releases bonds between fascia, skin, muscle, and bone. Manipulating the fascia allows the connective tissue fibers to reorganize themselves in a more flexible, functional fashion. Injuries, stress, inflammation, trauma, and poor posture can cause restriction to fascia. The goal of myofascial release is to release fascia restriction and restore tissue health.
Chiropractic adjustments help ease problems such as back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain; when combined with deep tissue massage therapy, the effects of each can be more effective. Chiropractic eases your bones and joints back into their natural position, and allow for better movement. Myofascial therapy addresses the muscles and nerves that surround your bones and joints, enhancing the benefits of the chiropractic adjustment.
