Fitting myofascial release into an evidence‑based culture

by Walt Fritz, PT on April 19, 2017

“Myofascial release” and “evidence-based” are phrases that are seldom spoken together. Papers exist telling us how and why myofascial release (MFR) is not an evidence-based treatment model/modality. In today’s therapeutic culture, one that demands that we work from evidence-based perspectives, it is at time difficult to find much in manual therapy that appears to meet the test. I believe MFR suffers from such doubts more than many other similar modalities due to some dubious and outlandish claims made over the past generation which further tarnished it reputation.

I recently wrote an article for Multibriefs that comments on these topics and I would like to share it with you. As always, comments are welcome.
