Is Myofascial Release Therapy really effective? Know it all

Myofascial Release Therapy is the most effective natural method to rid yourself of your pain. You might be wondering if undergoing such will truly be effective. Reading this blog will give you a clear picture of how Myofascial Release Therapy works and its benefits to you. 

Fascia is a connective tissue that runs throughout the body and provides support and protection to muscles and bones. Stiffness in the fascia leads to intense pain and limitation of body movement. This is generally caused by injury, stress, poor posture, lack of body movement/sedentary inactivity, inflammation, depression, anxiety, obesity, exhaustion and any number of factors, etc. As fascia is connective tissue, stiffness in a particular area can be the root cause of pain in any other part of the body. 

Myofascial Release Therapy is a gentle hands-on massage technique performed to release the affected fascia tissue because this release treats the myofascial pain and balances the whole body. This therapy is of two different types of equal importance  – Direct Release and Indirect Release. Direct Release is popularly known as deep tissue release therapy whereby some force or weight is applied to the affected area of fascial stiffness to improve tissue extensibility. On the other hand, Indirect Release is a comparatively gentler method where less pressure is applied by the Specialist to unwind fascia. 

Myofascial Release Therapy is effective not just in releasing tightened fascia but also helps in maintaining and restoring overall body balance. Some of the benefits of undergoing such an amazing therapy include:

  • Lessens or eliminates pain
  • Releases or unwinds knots in the fascia
  • Helps the patient regain body balance 
  • Helps the patient reduce stress
  • Establishes body-mind synchronization for the patient
  • Improves the patient’s muscle movement
  • Boosts the patient’s immune system
  • Etc., Et Al
