Explanation of how Myofascial Release can provide pain relief:
Fascia is a tough connective tissue which spreads throughout the body in a three-dimensional web from head to foot without interruption. Trauma, posture or inflammation can create a binding down of fascia resulting in excessive pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, osseous structures and/or organs.
Since many of the standard tests such as x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc. do not show the fascial restrictions, it is thought that an extremely high percentage of people suffering with pain and/or lack of motion may be having fascial problems, but most go undiagnosed.
The viscoelastic quality of the fascial system causes it to resist a suddenly applied force. This explains why the “old form” of myofascial release, which was an attempt to force a system that cannot be forced, produced pain and limited results.
Myofascial Release provides pain relief for many conditions.

- Cervical Pain
