MYOFASCIAL RELEASE/CONNECTIVE TISSUE
When an injury occurs, or as a result of postural distortion, the fascia, a thin, elastic membrane that surrounds all the structures of the body, can become twisted, adhered, contracted and rigid, pulling the structure out of alignment, restricting movement, entrapping nerves, and contributing to pain and dysfunction. These techniques soften and stretch the fascia to restore function and reduce pain.
