Myofascia are the densely woven coverings of muscles, bones, arteries, and veins, as well as all internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. Myofascia is a continuous structure throughout the body that runs from head to toe. It is also a large sensory organ, where most of the proprioceptive nerve fibers are in the body. Myfascia plays a role in the support and function of our bodies; and has the ability to stretch and move without restriction.
Myofascial therapy is a safe and effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Trauma, inflammatory responses, and surgical procedures may cause myofascial restrictions that produce pressure on pain sensitive structures that do not show up on standard tests including x-rays, MRIs and CT-scans.
