What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial Release is an effective hands-on technique that treats somatic dysfunction to alleviate pain and restriction of motion. This is a form of soft tissue manual therapy technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure on any part of the body into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions.  Myofascial release is highly effective in providing pain relief and improvement of symptoms in a wide range of conditions which result from restrictions in soft tissues.

What is a Myofascial Restriction?

A Myofascial restriction is the binding down of fascial tissue that can be created by trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures. It can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on one single nerve.  Myofascial restriction might be caused by an accident, injury or surgery, among other causes.

What is Myofascial Tissue?

Myofascial tissue is connective tissue that spreads throughout the entire body in a three-dimensional web expanding from your head to your feet without interruption. Myofascial restrictions can result in excessive pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, osseous structures (bones), and organs. It is not detectable by any special tests such as an MRI or x-ray. Normal fascial tissue has the ability to stretch, to relax, and has a wavy appearance.

Who can Benefit from Myofascial Release?

Any man, women, or child with pain, discomfort, or restrictions from many different health related issues, including pelvic floor dysfunction can benefit from myofascial release.

What is pelvic floor dysfunction?

Pelvic floor dysfunction is a disorder in the muscles, nerves, or fascia of the pelvic girdle, or in the surrounding skeletal structure. It is extremely common to have a dysfunction in the pelvic girdle involving the urological, gastrointestinal, and reproductive systems in women, men and children.

Additional Information


I have had interstitial cystitis with unbearable pain. I had gone to more than five urologists and no one was helping me. Finally, I went to Dr. Figueroa, who told me I needed a Physical Therapist. I thought to myself, “how can a physical therapist help me?” Now, I am so thankful for Lauradonna D’Antoni, DPT. I never thought I would be feeling the way I am today – pain free. If I ever have any type of pelvic floor dysfunction again, physical therapy is the way I will go.
