MFR Research

Postby WaltFritz on Mon Feb 26, 2007 5:48 pm

One of the standard "critics" complaints regarding myofascial release is the lack of research. When I get an insurance company demanding evidence that MFR works, they typically fall back onto this claim. There is a good amount of research out there that MFR is a vaible and effective treatment modality. I've posted some of the research, as well as associated research, on my website. I did this to make my job easier when an insurance company questions the work as well as for other professionals to utilize in a similar fashion. Feel free to do so yourself.

Restless Leg Syndrome

Postby WaltFritz on Mon Jul 23, 2007 9:03 am

I just located a research article from the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies on Restless Leg Syndrome. It reports the positive effects of MFR as a part of a massage therapy regime on this condition. Check it out at:
