This holistic hands on therapy, which uses manual pressure and stretching to release physical restrictions in the Fascia, could help Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Instead of massaging muscles, Myofascial Release works on the fascia-the web of elastin and collagen fibers that surround and separate muscles - which can scar or harden as a result of trauma, inflammation or prolonged poor posture.
In a study of four patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, all saw improvement in both their symptoms and MRI scans after Myofascial Release treatment.
