Myofascial Release VS Massage: Which One is Better?

Massage therapy is beneficial for relaxation and rehabilitation. However, it may not offer the precision of myofascial release. Unlike massage, myofascial release specifically targets adhesions, trigger points, and scar tissue to provide permanent relief from underlying soft tissue issues. You will actively move your affected ligament, muscle, or structure while our therapist works on the injured area. This enables our certified doctors of physical therapy to address restricted muscles, ligaments, or tendons.
