Active Myofascial Release

What is Fascia? 
Fascia is a thin layer of fibrous tissue that lays over the top of the muscular system, and is also connected with every organ and even the spinal cord. Like ligaments, aponeuroses, and tendons, fasciae are dense regular connective tissues, containing closely packed bundles of collagen fibers oriented in a wavy pattern parallel to the direction of pull. 

What is Myofascial release?
Myofascial release is a gentle soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscles and tendons. It allows the chiropractor to break up any areas of adhesion that limit the free movement of muscles and joins that are part of it’s fascial line. 

For example, there is a line of fascia that runs from the bottom of your foot to the top of your head. Some people with plantar fasciitis will actually have headaches and this is because they are all in one continuous line. (Picture in lower right shows just some of the fascial lines).

If there is a fixation in one part of the line, it pulls on the rest of the line which can cause other issues.
