Myofascial release is a hands-on therapy that targets the fascia, a connective tissue that surrounds and supports muscles throughout the body. Dr. Shemansky applies this technique through gentle and sustained pressure to release restrictions and adhesions in the fascia.
By doing so, myofascial release helps to reduce muscle tension, improve blood flow, and promote tissue healing, offering relief from pain and improving overall mobility.
Myofascial release effectively treats a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, including chronic pain, muscle tightness, and postural imbalances. It is particularly beneficial for conditions like:
