Myofascial release uses gentle, sustained pressure to release tension and restrictions of this important connective tissue (fascia). Release techniques can be applied actively (with you moving your knee) or passively (where we move your knee for you) through joint range.
Other myotherapy techniques we commonly use to treat knee problems include general massage, cupping, dry needling, and stretching of the calves, popliteus (behind the knee), TFL (attached to the infamous ITB), and even muscles of the hip and lower back region may be explored if found to be indicated or affected by your condition.
At the end of the treatment we will re-assess your knee function and together, you and your myotherapist, will discuss strengthening and lengthening activities you can perform at home to take pro-active care of your knee health and return to everyday, enjoyable movement.
If you have knee pain, don’t delay, book an appointment with one of our caring and qualified myotherapists today.
