Fascia is the connective tissue beneath the skin that attaches and stabilizes muscles and other internal organs. Due to its makeup, fascia is flexible and resists tension. Fasciae surround the muscles and other structures.
Trauma, inflammation, and surgical procedures cause fascia to restrict and produce tension in areas where injury or pain occur. When this happens, you may suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle and joint pain, migraine headaches, back pain, or other physical conditions.
Olson Family Chiropractic offers relief from pain and tension by providing Myofascial Release to our patients. Our physical therapists can apply treatment to the affected areas to improve your condition and eliminate pain.

What is Myofascial Release?
During Myofascial Release, we apply gentle sustained pressure on connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motions in your muscles and ligaments. Gentle pressure promotes fascia to elongate, thus, improving range of motions and flexibility in your muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
We can apply Myofascial Release to any individual according to their specific condition and pain level. There is a wide range of techniques and movements that allow us to treat your condition and improve your overall well-being.
Our hands-on approach allows us to detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to release the fascia.
Conditions Treated by Myofascial Release
Myofascial Release therapy focuses on releasing fascia contractions and tightness. If you suffer from any of the following conditions, Myofascial Release may provide relief for your pain.
- Loss of flexibility or function
- Ongoing back, shoulder, or hip pain
- Tight tissue that restricts motion or pulls the body out of alignment
- Overcompensating using one part of the body due to the constrictions of another part
- A sense of excessive pressure on muscles or joints that produces pain
- Recurring Injuries
- Poor posture
- Breathing difficulties
What Are the Benefits of Myofascial Release?

- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Temporomandibular joint disorder
- Muscle and joint pain
- Migraine headaches
- Back pain
- Injuries due to poor shoulder or hip alignment
What Can You Expect During Your Visits?
When you visit our clinic for the first time, we will perform a series of examinations and discuss your medical and health history. All the information you provide will help us determine if Myofascial Release is the appropriate treatment for your condition. We may conduct a routine physical and check your vitals.
Since we use a hands-on approach to treatment, we will use oils, creams, or tools to perform the procedure. We use our hands to detect and release your Myofascial restrictions. Most sessions last 30 minutes to an hour for optimal therapy. Once we determine that this technique will treat your condition, you may schedule visits as often as you like.
