Myofascial Release Therapy at Denton Sports Chiropractic

hands on shouldersOur doctors will utilize myofascial release during your chiropractic appointments. Myofascial release is a manual therapy technique. During this therapy, the doctor will find the area to be worked on and apply pressure to the muscle while either the patient actively or the doctor passively moves or stretches the body part. The end goal of this treatment is to reduce tension, increase range of motion and improve blood flow.

In addition to helping you feel and move better, myofascial release also works in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments and can even help you hold an adjustment longer.
