What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial Release is a hands-on approach to assessing and treating the whole person, instead of a list of symptoms. Traditional therapies focus, and ultimately are limited by, the treatment of symptoms as they directly relate to a diagnosis. Over the past 18 years of utilizing Myofascial Release I have found that commonly the pain symptoms a person identifies as the reason for seeking treatment are actually the symptoms caused by the body compensating from another injury or prolonged, awkward posture. When a therapist treats from a symptom/diagnosis view they are limited and therefore aren’t allowed to treat the actual problem causing a person’s pain symptoms.
The focus of Myofascial Release is to treat the fascial system: which is a continuous, three-dimensional web that extends from the top of your head to the bottoms of your feet. All structures (muscles, bones, nerves, etc.) travel within this web and thereby are affected by this web. A fascial restriction can produce massive amounts of force on the tissues of the body resulting in pulling a person into awkward positions that can cause multiple and sometimes inconsistent symptoms.

Specialized Therapy Services is the oldest clinic in the Milwaukee area to specialize in Myofascial Release (as well as one of the very few in Southeast Wisconsin) that accepts and is in network for health insurance companies.
