Muscle release therapy (MRT) is a hands on, soft tissue movement based technique that treats problems/injuries with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.
MRT is non-invasive, very safe, and has virtually no side effects. Treatments can feel uncomfortable during the movement phase as the scar tissue or adhesions “break-up”. This discomfort is temporary and subsides almost immediately after the treatment.
Whenever possible the patient should perform the active movements during the treatment process. Active motions stimulate neurological pathways in the spinal cord that help to reduce pain during the treatment. Motion also helps to reproduce the stresses the patient will actually be under during normal active motion. It is common to feel a duplication of your pain symptoms during the treatment. This is a good indication that the problem has been identified.
