Manual Release Therapy is a technique used to release tension and inflammation that often gets trapped in the soft tissues of the body. MRT is made up of many release techniques that can be combined with other chiropractic care methods to provide pain relief and increase flexibility and range of motion. Bodywise Chiropractic Center in Elk River, MN offers MRT to help patients overcome tension and inflammation issues.
What Is MRT - Manual Release Therapy?
Manual Release Therapy involves the manual manipulation of the body's soft tissues. MRT involves applying pressure to the soft tissues of the body where tension has started to build. Increased tension can lead to inflammation and damage to the connective tissues. The longer the inflammation remains in or near joints, the more flexibility and range of motion will be lost.
MRT is an ideal treatment option for pain in most areas of the body. Unlike deep tissue massage, where the therapist rubs and manipulates the soft tissues in an attempt to loosen them up and improve blood flow, MRT uses pressure and agitation to reduce muscle spasms and improve flexibility that may have been lost after an injury.
Chiropractic Care and MRT Work Together
Chiropractic care and MRT work together to keep the musculoskeletal system working as it should be. By relieving stress and tension that can tighten muscles and limit mobility, MRT can reduce the risk of injury. When combined with chiropractic care, MRT can help speed up the recovery process by encouraging blood flow to areas where inflammation may have blocked it in the past.
Living a Healthier Lifestyle
Because MRT and chiropractic care make it easier for the body to function efficiently, it is much easier to exercise and be more active. People are more likely to exercise regularly and live a healthier lifestyle when they are not dealing with pain daily. Working with our chiropractor can help you get back to where you need to be.
