Myofascial Release (MFR) has been extremely effective for lower back pain, even when all else has failed including traditional physical therapy, chiropractic, medications, or even surgery. No other modality is addressing the true underlying cause of most back problems including stenosis, herniated or bulging discs, spondylosis, spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, etc. It is, many times, the fascial restrictions that are compressing the spine and/or pulling the body out of proper alignment that causes these changes that are seen on MRI’s and X-Rays. Fascial restrictions do not show up on any of the special tests including MRI’s so they are often missed or misdiagnosed. So, if you still have pain, despite various other forms of treatment, give MFR a try!
