Myofascial release showed decreased pain, increased shoulder movement, and increased functionality in women after breast cancer surgery.
The study demonstrated that four sessions of MFR of the lower limb can induce an improvement in the isolated external hip joint rotation. The authors hypothesized that the improvement in the hip joint’s ROM was due to reduced myofascial stiffness after the MFR treatments.
At the muscular level, myofascial release (MFR) is commonly believed to ease fascial gliding motion, releasing adhesions between fascia.
Are we really able to singularly and specifically isolate fascia…, to the exclusion of all other tissue… to create change? To that I am quite uncertain.
