# 415 Myofascial Release Therapy… Soft Tissue Mobilization for Pain Management and Improved Mobility

 

Fascia is a three-dimensional matrix of tissue that envelopes every system of the body.  When fascia becomes bound down or scarred from inflammation, injury, postural habits or disease, the tension adversely impacts multiple systems, especially the neuromusculoskeletal system. Symptoms may be remote from the apparent area of injury, including referred pain, stiffness, muscle weakness, nerve impingement, organ dysfunction,  and abnormal sensations. Many of these clients are experiencing myofascial dysfunction. Myofascial restrictions do not appear on standard x-rays, MRIs, or examinations. It is best diagnosed by the skill of a manual therapy practitioner. Myofascial dysfunction may become symptomatic from months to years post-injury. Patients often present challenging symptoms with chronic pain, which may not show typical dermotomal or myotomal patterns.  It may occur at the point when the body has maximized its adaptive potential and loses the ability to compensate for abnormal tension. Standard treatment protocols using medication, exercise and modalities may fail to address the problem effectively. Manual release of the abnormal tension is essential to manage painful restrictions and to restore mobility and function. In this lab-based course, you will learn how to differentiate between myofascial conditions such as myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia, identify motion restrictions through posture screening, hands on motion testing and palpation. You will learn how to apply MFR to improve mobility, circulation, and posture, and decrease painful restrictions using this gentle manual therapy technology to achieve improved functional outcomes across the lifespan.
