MYO– Muscle, the contractile units that creates movement in the body.
Fascia– the connective tissue covering surrounding muscle and tendon and linking muscles together.

In order to find true freedom from an injury or pain you are dealing with the Muscle, Fascia, and Neurology of the injury must be taken into account.

When your nerves no longer signal the proper message to a muscle, eventually another muscle will have to take over to compensate for its loss of function.

When a muscle is overused or traumatized the cellular structure of the fascia, and the nerve component of the muscle can become dysfunctional.

Nerve sensors in the muscle can “learn” a dysfunctional pattern. This is caused by injury, poor postures, or compensations for other weakened muscles.

Myofascial Technique is then the analysis and treatment of these muscle and fascia dysfunctions.

Analysis:  A detailed exam is conducted using the “functional exam”  analyzing your posture, your daily ergonomics, ranges of motion of muscle, palpation of fascia and trigger points, and motion tests to isolate faults in the kinetic chain.

In layman’s terms we figure out what areas are not moving well and map them out for you.

An Example:  Back pain is plaguing many, but most do not realize the fascia of the Latissimus muscle could be a cause of your back pain.  Or that a contracted myofascia of the Hip Flexor in the front of the hip can lead ot back pain.

Treatment:

Anatomy based and dynamic would be the best way to describe myofascial release technique.  The muscle and fascia have a normal range of motion.  When we take the muscle through its designed range of motion while performing soft tissue release hands on we can change the scar tissue or “fibrous adhesion” and also the neural signal to muscle.
