What is Myofascial Release?
Anywhere there is a nerve in the body there is fascia. The ability of a nerve to respond to its environment is related to the qualities of the fascial tissue that surrounds it, he explained. Most people create pain for themselves by having inefficient, accumulated patterns of movement. Studies have found myofascial release is an effective technique to treat pain, fibromyalgia, increase blood flow, improve range of motion, speed up muscle recovery, alleviate chronic lower back pain, improve sleep, reduce anxiety and depression, and quality of life.
