Many problems requiring chiropractic care involve some restriction of movement or tightness. The basic premise of myofascial release and manual therapy is to create mobility in a joint or soft tissue that doesn’t move enough. Myofascial release is more often used to treat issues involving muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Several types of myofascial release exist and tend to be popular in the sports medicine world. Manual therapy is frequently used to treat joints that need to move better. This is a gentle way to correct ongoing movement dysfunction. Once the joint(s) gain mobility, pain will be reduced and focus can be put on making the area more stable.
