Myofascial Release Therapy
Myofascial Release Therapy (MRT) is a manual therapy that focuses on pain believed to arise for myofascial tissues, the tough membranes that surround, connect and support your muscles.
Myofascial pain originates in 'trigger points', which are stiff, anchored areas within the myofascial tissue. These trigger points often cause referred pain, which means the source of your pain may be distal to the area in which your pain is felt.
During MRT, myofascial areas that feel stiff and fixed instead of elastic and movable under light pressure are identified. These areas restrict muscle and joint movements, which contributes to widespread muscular pain. Focused manual pressure and stretching works to loosen restricted myofascial tissue, leading towards pain reduction.
Speak with Dr. Soye, Kaitlyn or Melissa if you are interested in type of therapy.
