Myofascial Release (or MFR) is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of the 'fascia'; a single continuous web type structure that envelops all our muscles, organs, neural system, and skeletal muscle from head to toe. Adhesions and immobility anywhere in the fascia can create pain and/or restrictions at the site of injury as well as adjacent areas throughout the body. Athletes and all other active populations benefit tremendously from this type of treatment. It helps to maintain/improve mobility, strength and better blood circulation through the muscle and fascial system.
Those who find themselves in sustained postures for long periods of time (office workers) also develop restrictions in the fascia over time and find huge relief from (myo)fascial release therapy.
what you can expect
Along with the importance of maintaining fascial mobility and integrity, my experience and growth as a Physio has led me to favour active forms of rehabilitation to treat injuries and return normal function.
Move more, Feel better.
This form of rehabilitation is by far the most effective because it teaches your body to adapt and strengthen for the long term, decreasing the likelihood of future injuries. I also use a number of manual therapy techniques to optimise movement and facilitate postural change.
