Myofascial Release Workshop
What is Fascia?
The fascia is a soft connective tissue located just under the skin. It wraps and connects the muscles, bones, nerves and blood vessels all together. Muscle and fascia, together make up what is called the myofascia system.
What are Fascial Lines (Meridians)?
The multiple layers of fascia fibers in different locations of the body follow some specific directions that shapes the posture of the body. Due to the direction of these fibers, some of the body movements are easily possible to perform and some other movements are limited. There are 13 known fascial lines (meridians) exist in the body. Knowing the direction of these lines will assist the therapist to develop treatment and prescribe stretches to the patient with a maximum effectiveness.
What is Fascial Restriction?
Any local injury on the fascia, disuse or not enough stretching will cause the fascia and the underlying muscle tissue become stuck together. This is called an adhesion, and it results in restricted muscle movement along with pain, soreness and reduced flexibility or range of motion. In addition, this will cause pressure on the underlying structures, sometime up to 1800 pound per square inches.
Common causes of Fascia Restriction:
These restrictions can not be detected in most paraclinic procedures such as: X-Ray, MRI, CT Scan, Ultrasound or Blood tests, therefore, they can easily ignored or misdiagnosed for a long period of time.
What is Myofascial Release technique?
It is a safe and highly effective therapy for reducing pain, increasing the range of motion and restoration of functions. These techniques were anciently used by variety of nations to manage the pain, and recently discovered scientifically and is used widely as a part of manual therapy by Osteopaths, Physiotherapists, Physical Therapist and Massage Therapists.
These techniques use gentle, sustained pressure on the soft tissues while applying traction to the fascia. These techniques result in lengthening and softening (release) of the fascia, as well as the breaking down of adhesion (scar tissue) between skin, muscles and bones, and internal organs.
