Myofascial Release Treats Many Common Conditions
The Myofascial Release Technique, also known simply as MRT, is a cutting-edge, state-of-the-art soft tissue therapy that treats somatic dysfunction – a common condition normally caused by overuse of a muscle or joint that results in pain, stiffness, tenderness, or a limited range of motion. Myofascial Release is used to treat many conditions, including:
Generalized Joint & Muscle Pain, such as:
- Back Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Knee Pain
- Shin Splints (Pain in the shins associated with running)
As well as clinically diagnosed conditions like:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Sciatica (Nerve pain in the lower back and leg)
- Plantar Fasciitis (Persistent aching in the arch of the foot)
These are just a few examples of the many, many ailments that Myofascial release therapy can be used to benefit.
What to Expect From an MRT Treatment
Conditions that are treated by Myofascial release are most commonly diagnosed by your doctor or therapist by touch. By evaluating the texture, tightness, and overall movement of the muscles and underlying tissues, they can target the techniques that will benefit you the most.
Once your therapist has identified your specific needs, the treatment will include a combination of massage-like techniques and range-of-motion movements where he or she will actively flex and move the muscles and joints to loosen them up.
The fact is, MRT is much like a normal massage, except it targets not only the muscle, but the tendons, ligaments, and nerves surrounding it.
