Your connective tissue is the thin layer of tissue that envelopes all of your muscles and the individual muscle fibers.

Myofascial Release (also known as Connective Tissue Therapy) is a type of soft-tissue therapy that provides a slow stretching of stuck connective tissue. This allows for an increase of mobility to affected joints and a temporary increase of blood-flow to the muscles.

A common area for Myofascial Release is in the treatment of Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS), a common thigh injury usually associated with sports (especially running).

Acting as the structure that supports the outer knee, the ITB can slowly contract over time, causing it to become “short”. This results in general tenderness of the area (often referred to as “runner’s knee”) and can escalate to outright pain while being physically active, or even while at rest. Myofascial Release can help accelerate the healing process by increasing mobility and blood-flow.

Please note that while Myofascial Release is a slow, targeted technique, a constant pull or ache may be felt during the therapy, and some tenderness may be felt for a few a days after the connective tissue work is done.
