Myofascial release San Francisco Chiropractor
Myofascial Release Techniques (MRT) is a soft tissue therapy designed to reduce the scar tissue which forms within injured or imbalanced muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Have you ever had a massage which felt great while it was happening, but the next day those knots in your shoulders and back were still there? That’s because the scar tissue within the muscles was not reduced and the bio-mechanical problem which caused those knots to form in the first place was in no way addressed. Why don’t you refer to Myofascial Release Techniques (MRT)?
How does Myofascial Release Techniques (MRT) work?
Treatment of scar tissue is essential to fully resolve soft-tissue injuries and restore proper health and function to the body. The therapy itself is similar to some forms of massage. It consists of a gentle pressure being applied to the tissue as it is brought through its full range of motion. This accomplishes two goals simultaneously. It increase range of motion and strengthens the tissue by breaking apart fibers of scar tissue.
What is an MRT Treatment like?
San Francisco Chiropractor will use your hand to determine the location of the scar tissue. After locating, the chiropractor will start massaging and stretching the areas that feel stiff with light manual pressure. Through the application of specific pressure and tension on the scar tissue the chiropractor will be able to breakdown the problematic scar tissue, thereby restoring the proper flexibility and motion to the area.Through the application of specific pressure and tension on the scar tissue the chiropractor will be able to breakdown the problematic scar tissue, thereby restoring the proper flexibility and motion to the area.
