Myofascial Release Therapy

At Holistic Healthcare, we are the most respected provider of Myofascial Release Therapy in St. George UT.

Myofascial Release Therapy treats skeletal muscle immobility and helps you gain back your normal strength, flexibility and better movement (range of motion), by removing scar tissues and adhesions from injuries.  This also reduces pain, relaxes stiff muscles, improves circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid, and stimulates the stretch reflex in the body’s muscles.

To fully understand how myofascial release therapy works, we must first familiarize ourselves with the body’s fascia– the thin, tough, elastic connective tissue that wraps around most of the body’s structures, including muscle. Fascia surrounds and protects each and every one of the body’s tissues, tendons, bones, muscles, ligaments, and organs. Fascia is very strong, yet retains a high degree of flexibility. However, following trauma or injury, the fascia can scar and harden in the affected area, causing the fascial network to lose its cushioning mechanism. Internal structures are then pulled out of their proper alignment. This then creates an abnormal pressure, sometimes up to 2,000 pounder per square inch, severely affecting nerves, blood vessels, and lymphatic vessels, leading to severe pain.

Furthermore, these fascial restrictions don’t appear on CAT scans, MRIs, or X rays. Many times, patients do not even know why they are suffering!

Dr. Marc Lyman and Dr. Scott Graf will help you gain back your normal strength and flexibility by removing unnecessary scar tissue and adhesions in your body so you can have a more full, pain free life!

How exactly does myofascial release therapy work? This safe and effective therapy is accomplished by placing gentle, sustained pressure on the onto the fascia, in order to restore a full range of motion and to reduce pain.
