PNF Stretching and Myofascial Release

PNF Stretching and Myofascial Release

At Function 4 Life, PNF Stretching and Myofascial Release go hand in hand in keeping your muscles healthy.

Our everyday lives necessitate us being in the same posture too much – think desk work and driving –  and it’s rarely the correct posture. This leads to muscles becoming shortened and tight due to overuse and fatigue. Additionally, we form adhesions and connective tissue which is not needed and this is where myofascial release aids stretching.

Myofascial Pain is sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues. These are the tissues which surround and support the muscles throughout your body. The pain originates from ‘trigger points’ but it is not easy to understand what trigger point is responsible for what pain.

Hence our borrowed motto “Pain: where you think it is, it ain’t” Ida Rolf.

All of our sessions involve warming up the muscles via high frequency massage followed by PNF stretching to make a lasting difference.

Contact us by phone or text on 313 782-3010 to arrange your first appointment and discover how we can make you function better and pain free.
