What is McHenry Myofascial Release? fascial-system-side

“Myo” refers to muscle, and “fascia” to the elastic web of connective tissues. This is a specialized system, similar to a web, connecting your body together.  Myofascial release is a safe, hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the fascial system to help decrease pain, improve posture, and increase movement.

We use the John F Barnes Myofascial Release Approach.

What Causes a Restriction?

Normally, in a healthy state, the fascia has the ability to stretch and move without tension or restrictions.  However, when we experience trauma, inflammation, surgical procedures, and  microtraumas throughout our life, they create myofascial restrictions. These restrictions can produce pressures up to 2,000 lbs/inch.

What to expect at Red Rock Physical Therapy

Each one-on-one session is individually tailored to our McHenry client’s needs. A detailed assessment of your movements and posture is completed first. Releasing fascia requires a sensitive and slow approach applied directly to the skin. The techniques may be quite gentle. Often there are many layers to a problem, and like an onion, the McHenry physical therapist will work to unravel the layers, and help you return to your active lifestyle.
