The Intelligent Alternative to Traditional Chiropractic and Physical Therapy.
The medical approach is to drug patients so they are temporarily free from pain. Traditional Physical, Occupational, and massage therapy treats only the symptoms caused by the "straightjacket" of pressure from the myofascial system that causes and perpetuates the symptoms. This is why so many patients only have temporary results, never seeming to get better with these traditional(for profit) approaches. Only Myofascial Release treats the entire myofascial complex eliminating the pressure of the restricted myofascial system(the "straightjacket") that causes the symptoms.
The Fascial Pelvis
an excerpt taken from John F. Barnes'(founder of Myofascial Release) article
The word "pelvis" originates from Latin meaning Basin. What is the function of a basin? It holds fluid. You and I are more than 70 percent fluid!
Trauma and inflammatory responses tend to dehydrate the ground substance of the fascial system and ultimately cause symptoms. Restrictions or imbalances in the "fascial pelvis" can create problems locally and throughout the entire mind-body complex. My experience has shown that more than 90 percent of my patients/clients suffering with Lumbar(low back) and pelvic pain, headaches or fibromyalgia have myofascial restrictions and imbalances in the pelvis.
Gender Differences Women tend to have more problems in the pelvic region due to the uniqueness of the anatomy and function of their pelvis. THe female pelvis is broader and therefore more easily torqued. The joint surfaces of the female are flatter, therefore more easily moved or sheared during micro or major trauma. I cannot tell you how many times I have heard stories of both men and women being seen by doctor after doctor, taking more and more medication, as months and then years pass. In fact, it continues to get worse over time and begins to spread to assorted symptoms throughout the body. Fascia surrounds and infuses with every organ, duct, nerve, blood vessel, muscle and bone of the pelvic cavity. Fascia has the propensity to tighten after trauma, inflammatory processes and/or poor posture. Fascia has a tensile strength of more than 2,000 pounds per square inch.
In other words, fascial restrictions have the potential of exerting enormous pressure on pain-sensitive stuctures, producing pain or malfunction of the important pelvic structures. Certainly not all problems have a fascial origin, but restrictions of the fascia are the cause of many problems in a surprisingly high percentage of cases, especially when all the tests turn out negative and medication only helps temporarily or surgery does not change the situation.
I have seen clients from all over the nation in my office for Myofascial Release when medicine, surgery or traditional therapy or massage did not produce the desired results. Myofascial Release will safely and gently release the entire myofascial complex for lasting and comprehensive results and authentic healing.
