Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a hands-on technique that requires gentle pressure through the myofascial system to restore motion and decrease pain. Fascia is a specialized system in the body that surrounds and attaches to all structures. It is like a sweater that is woven throughout the body. Any trauma or inflammation can cause this supple fascia to tighten, causing pain and decreasing range of motion. (John Barnes) We use this technique to improve range of motion of the joints as well as to improve postural alignment. Children with cerebral palsy with high muscle tone and/or spasticity who have tightness throughout the body may benefit from this approach. MFR can help improve range of motion of the legs, arms, neck and back and may help avoid surgical intervention.
