Myofascial release technique (MRT) is a soft tissue treatment that allows for the release and breakdown of scar tissue in muscles, fascia and ligaments. This method coupled with the action of a muscle helps provide elongation of the muscle fibers through all their phases of motion. This produces an increase in blood flow to help the healing process and increase overall range of motion. This treatment is offered at Stumpff Chiropractic in Plantation, Florida.
