myofascial release therapy

Posted by JeanZ on 4/21/04 at 08:30 (149279)

I have had pf for over two years and am still trying conservative therapies. Has anyone tried myofascial release? My primary care physician has never even heard of it, and my podiatrist doesn't sound too optimistic about it's benefits, but I'm hoping will be open to it if I hear from others who have tried it with success.

I gave it a try. I think if my PF had not become chronic it may have helped. Just be careful,when the therapist is doing the massage that she is gentle. It can also set you back a long time.
