Myofascial Release Technique (MRT)

If you have ever suffered from a sports injury, chronic pain, car accident, or have had surgery, the soft tissue that lies just beneath the skin can heal with more fibrous and un pliable scar tissue build up than normal. Very commonly, from the physical demands of work and stress, trauma, or chronic wear and tear, myofascia (myo- meaning muscle, and fascia is the connective tissue that holds muscle fibers together) can become overly tight or bound up. If this condition is left alone for too long, scar tissue can develop and result in pain and limited range of motion. Dr. Allen uses his knowledge of muscle anatomy and intuitive awareness about the location of potential problem areas and uses this soft tissue technique to essentially iron out the fascia (connective tissue) to restore normal function of the affected muscle.
