Myofascial Release (MFR)

Myofascial release is a specialized, hands-on treatment approach aimed at improving the mobility of the fascial system. Fascia is a tough connective tissue found throughout the body. In a healthy state, fascia can stretch and move easily, but with physical trauma the fascia loses this flexibility and becomes very tight. Myofascial release treatment effectively identifies and releases these myofascial restrictions in order to decrease pain and stiffness.

Therapist was very helpful and knowledgeable with answering all of my questions and concerns. Therapist was also helpful in walking me through my steps to rehabilitation.  Because of this I still keep therapist informed of my doctor visits, results, and still ask her questions.

Knee injury rehab icon

I had a knee injury and was treated by a therapist at RIOW. I am relieved to have seen positive results with my knee pain. The at-home exercises my therapist assigned me also helped. From the on-site parking to the comfortable atmosphere and professional treatment, my experience was exceptional. I highly recommend RIOW.

I had treatment with RIOW for my lower back pain and enjoyed having all treatment sessions with the same therapist. My appointments were one-on-one for one hour long. My therapist was very professional and experience and highly recommend RIOW for any therapy needs.
