What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial Release is a therapeutic treatment that uses gentle pressure and tension to facilitate the release of fascial restrictions caused by accidents, injury, stress, repetitive use, and traumatic or surgical scarring. This hands-on therapy is a powerful healing technique that restores your natural motion, and allows you to return to a pain free, active lifestyle.
The fascia is a connective tissue that forms a three-dimensional web, which surrounds and supports the muscular, skeletal, and visceral (organs) components of the body. Fascial restrictions bind down and exert pressure and stress on your body and its soft tissue structures, causing pain and dysfunction.

Do I need a prescription or physician's referral?

A prescription or referral for physical therapy is not required; you can call us to make an appointment right now. This means you do not need to wait weeks to see your physician or specialist to begin treatment in physical therapy. NOTE: You may have to have a prescription or referral to have treatment covered by your insurance (refer to how to determine your insurance) with or without insurance our therapist will work with your physician or other health care provider in the coordination of your treatment so you can concentrate on healing.  Your physical therapist does not provide a medical diagnosis, however we will perform a thorough evaluation and determine your movement impairment diagnosis and relay this information to your physician or other health care provider with your consent.

What can I expect from the treatment session?

Each Patient is evaluated, and the treatment is designed to address the problems reponsible for your pain and symptoms. Sustained pressure is used to release restrictions and restore the normal elastic and gliding motion of the fascia. As the restriction releases and unwinds, you may feel a sense of letting go and greater relaxation.

How can MFR help me?

This approach is successful because it seeks to find and treat the source of ailment rather than the symptoms that have developed over many years from your body's attempt to compensate. My work, using John Barnes' Myofascial Release techniques, helps relieve pain and discomfort by realigning your posture and releasing the restrictions that hold you out of balance.
