Myofascial Release Therapy (MRT) is a form of soft tissue therapy that focuses on problems arising in muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Overuse conditions and muscle imbalances can contribute to the formation of soft tissue adhesions and scar tissue within the muscles and connective tissue called fascia. This can lead to a reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain.

Myofascial Release involves applying tension to an affected area/tissue while the patient actively moves the tissue from a shortened to lengthened position.This helps in restoring range of motion and function to the affected soft tissues.

Myofascial Release is useful in treating a wide range of conditions including but not limited to:

  • Headaches
  • Neck and low back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sciatica
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Shin splints
