Myofascial Release is a form of soft tissue therapy used by our San Diego chiropractors to relax muscles and reduce restrictions while increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage. It is a technique used to apply pressure through rolling out soft tissues, such as trigger points, in an attempt to eliminate pain and help with stretching. Any type of trauma to the musculskeletal system or even poor posture can affect the resiliency of the fascia and as a result called pain, commonly known as Myofascial Pain Syndrome.

Fascia is a seamless spider like web of connective tissue that covers and connects muscles organs and skeletal structures. It is the soft tissue component of connective tissue. Sustained postures improper range of motion lead to the fascia to be restricted certain positions similar to a knead in a sweater. The goal of myofascial release is to bring back the fascia to its normal structure and pattern to aid the healing process and allow for proper stretching.

Our Chiropractic Doctors will locate and detect areas of the soft tissues that require myofascial release. Once the source is determined through a detailed exam then our chiropractors will utilize myofascial release along with chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy modalities, therapeutic stretches and exercises to correct the underlying cause of the problem.
