Myofascial Release

Please find a more detailed description of this service below

Myofascial Release™ is a safe, gentle, and effective orthopedic manual therapy technique which involves sustained low grade pressure and stretch to the fascial system. 

 It is a healing process in which the restricted connective tissue slowly develops a new memory, thus allowing the body’s structures to move more freely.

Both therapist and patient participate in facilitating the release of myofascial restrictions. 

It should be noted that Myofascial Release™ is a time-intensive treatment, meaning that each contact takes between 4-8 minutes, and 3 to 4 contacts may be done per treatment session. In short, it takes time to develop this new “tissue memory”.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release™ is a very effective hands on technique which provides sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain, headaches, and to restore motion. 

The theory of Myofascial Release™ requires an understanding of the fascial system (or connective tissue).

Fascia is a tough connective tissue which spreads throughout the body in a three dimensional web from your head to your feet without interruption.

Trauma or inflammation can create a binding down of fascia resulting in excessive pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, bony structures and/or organs.  

It is thought that an extremely high percentage of people suffering with pain, headaches, and/or lack of motion may be having fascial problems, but most go un-diagnosed.  

While all therapists at Birds Hill Physiotherapy practice Myofascial Release™ techniques, our most experienced practitioner is Joe Tataryn.

His philosophy with chronic pain is that “nothing changes until something changes”. Myofascial Release™ can be the instrument of this change.
