Myofascial Release


Athlete stretching to relieve myofascial pain.

Fascia is connective tissue that surrounds every part of our body. Literally translated, “myofascial” means muscle connective tissue. Trauma, posture or injuries of any kind can cause pulls to develop in the fascia. These pulls are so strong they create changes in posture which can cause disc problems or unexplainable pain. The fascia also functions like saran wrap. It can wrap around and compress nerves causing neurological symptoms leading to nerve pain, radiating, burning pain or reduced range of motion.

With myofascial release, I can help you work through your pain and stop it from hindering your life. This is a great therapy that can help you gain flexibility and regain feeling in parts of your body.


Benefits of Myofascial Release

Pain can come from one of two places. It can come from “bound down” problems with connective tissues or an injury. Myofascial therapy addresses the muscle pain by using pulls, stretches and compressions. The techniques can be subtle or applied deeply. They can be held for long periods of time giving the fascia time to melt and release.  

Myofascial release increases movement and reduces pain. It can also strengthen the immune system and improve your range of motion. With regular work, this therapy can improve blood circulation and nerve function.

Myofascial release benefits those who have:

  • Back, neck or pelvic pain
  • Chronic Pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Whiplash
  • Sports injuries
  • Disc problems
  • Pelvic floor or neurological dysfunction
  • Fibromyalgia

Preparing for a Myofascial Release

Regular work can result in improved posture and gait and significantly improved circulation, especially in the joints.  If you feel a knot or deep ache that steadily, worsens then regular myofascial massage might provide relief.  

Before you arrive, consider your pain and its possible causes and sources. We’ll discuss them at length to decide on the best therapy possible.

Release yourself from the pain.  Schedule a myofascial release appointment today in my Ashburn, VA office.
