What is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial Release is a massage technique that applies pressure to some points of the body and helps to relax and stretch the muscles, so that there is greater freedom between the muscle and the fascia.
Myofascial Release focuses on reducing pain by easing the tension in the trigger points. It’s not always easy to understand what trigger point is responsible for the pain. Localizing pain to a specific trigger point is very difficult. For that reason, Myofascial Release is often used over a broad area of muscle and tissue rather than at single points.
Myofascial Release is indicated in which cases?
There are some factors that cause muscle damage and, consequently, the weakening of the fascia:
- Muscle misuse
- Bad posture habits
- Intense workouts
- Emotional problems
