Fascia is the thin tissue that covers all the organs of your body. This tissue surrounds every muscle and even each individual muscle fiber and along with your muscle its referred to as the myofascial unit. When muscle fibers are injured, the fibers and the fascia which surrounds it become short and tight. This uneven stress can be transmitted through the fascia to other parts of the body, causing pain and a variety of other symptoms in areas you often wouldn’t expect. Myofascial Release
treats these symptoms by releasing the uneven tightness in injured fascia.
