Myofascial Release is good for addressing larger regions or lines of tightness that dont respond to other muscle work. Often, groups of muscles and nerves get trapped under adhered connective tissue. Myofascial release helps to address this.
Fascia refers to the layered bands of fibrous connective tissue that wrap and surround all muscles, bones and organs. Inflammation, trauma, repetitive stress and postural imbalances create adhesions and restrictions (“snags”) in fascia. To release myofascial snags, fascia is stretched or bended slowly in a focused area until a change in the tissue is felt. The goal is to warm up irregular fibrotic tissue, then “iron” it out to make it more aligned and flexible.
“I loved the individualized attention. The exercises are performed under close supervision with the rehab techs. I knew I was performing all the exercises correctly thanks to the one on one approach. They were patient with me in explaining the proper form and worked at my pace. The entire staff is very efficient. The wait time is short and prompt. It was very easy to set up appointments. The atmosphere is welcoming and the space is tidy.”
I think Dr. Graham and Michelle are both amazing practitioners and very accessible. I can reach them via email or even a phone call and they will get back to me as soon as they can. Both of them are very invested in me as a person as well as my success with treatment. Where other doctors would give up on me for not showing progress, they keep trying. They will not quit until I get better.
