As stated by John Barnes, PT, one of the originators of myofascial release, “Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.” (http://www.myofascialrelease.com).Fascial Stretch Therapy (or FST) is a very different approach developed by Ann and Chris Frederick: Stretch to Win - Fascial Stretch Therapy® is a neuromyofascial manual therapy that focuses on the connective tissue system rather than isolated muscle treatment. We assess passive, active and resisted movements in functional positions as well as on the treatment table. The approach starts with assessment and treatment where needed at the deepest part of the connective tissue system - the joint capsule. It progresses through all the layers of fascia, ending with the superficial layer. Where the central or peripheral nervous system is restricted or not optimal in movement, proper neural mechanics are restored. Muscles that were inhibited are activated while those that are over activated are normalized. Finally home program prescription follows so that the client/patient becomes an active partner on their journey to wellness or sport performance.
