Myofascial Release


Myofascial Release in Kansas City

Fascia is a connective tissue network supporting and holding muscles, bones, nerves, organs, and blood vessels in place. Due to auto accident injuries, adhesions and restrictions develop in these connective tissues, causing pain. Myofascial pain is chronic and different from other types of pain as it arises where myofascial tissues meet or cross.

Myofascial release aims to release tension, adhesions, and restrictions within the fascia. Myofascial release can help alleviate pain and discomfort by addressing fascial restrictions and reducing tension.

How Myofascial Release Works

Myofascial release is a hands-on technique that uses sustained pressure to release adhesions or restrictions in the fascia, reducing pain and increasing mobility. The technique also can enhance blood flow to the affected area, promoting healing. A myofascial release session may last between 30-50 minutes, depending on the severity of the injury.
