Muscle Release Techniques

Muscle Release Techniques, or Myofascial Techniques, are aimed at reducing tension and breaking down scar tissue in the muscles and the surrounding tissue called fascia. During the treatment the patient will make movements to stretch the muscle are the therapist performs a form of deep tissue therapy.

Despite being quite painful this can be a very effective technique. Sometimes the chiropractor will use only his or her hands. If deeper treatment is needed sometimes tools such as the Ghinese Gua Sha are used.

If it is likely that you will experience bruising or other effects to the skin then your chiropractor will warn you beforehand.
