Myofascial release- fascia is the connective tissue that runs throughout the entire body. Each muscle travels within its own fascial sack which allows muscles to slide over or under one another in different directions. Fascia will often form an adhesion to the muscles above or below which in turn drags other structures with it causing a great deal of pain. Myofascial release often restores functionality in the affected region.
Myofascial trigger point release- Trigger points can develop virtually anywhere in the body. They have been mapped out over decades by Dr Janet Travell and Dr David Simmons. Trigger points are often referred to as knots in the muscle. They can cause headaches, numbness, weakness and a great deal of pain. Trigger points are often the cause of extremely painful muscle spasms and can be debilitating.
