Myofascial tissue is a tissue network spread throughout the body that connects muscles, bones, and joints. They are thick connected tissues to support your muscles. When you feel stiffness or pain in your body, it can originate from different tissues in the body. However, Myofascial pain is chronic and different from other types of pain as it arises where Myofascial tissues meet or cross.
The treatment method Myofascial Release is not like a massage where lubricants are applied to the body to relax your sore muscles. Myofascial release uses sustained pressure on targeted areas of connective tissues around muscles and bones. This pressure helps release restrictions in the connective tissues, reducing pain and increasing mobility. Myofascial Release may be helpful in a wide range of conditions, such as neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, hip pain, or other areas containing soft tissue.
Our first session usually consists of an initial evaluation and a musculoskeletal physical exam to ensure that Myofascial Release is appropriate for you. It also includes strength and mobility testing and postural assessment that will help to determine the fascia's restricted areas. Gentle and sustained pressure is applied on the restricted points that help connective tissues to release. The session lasts between 30-50 minutes, and depending on the severity of your condition, our chiropractors will conduct the sessions.

I am a Chiropractor who practices in San Rafael, CA. I am incredibly picky regarding what chiropractor I go to see for my health. Once a month I travel 2 hours to see Dr. VanWagenen and it is well worth the drive. Dr. VanWagenen is a very skilled adjustor who has studied advanced adjusting methods. He is also incredibly knowledgable and well versed about nutrition, herbs and homeopathy. I was low on energy and had some headaches and back pain before seeing Dr. Van Wagenen and after just a few visits the back pain was gone and my energy went up and stayed up. If you are looking for a great all-in-one doctor who can help you get more out of life, then Dr. Van Wagenen would be just that Doctor.ILYA S.Roseville, California
I just started going here and my boyfriend has been going for years. We love this place and everything they’re about! The staff is amazing and always friendly. They seem to genuinely care for you and your wellbeing! It’s more than chiropractic care. I feel amazing after adjustments, I have needed this for a long time and I didn’t think I could be pain free so fast. I wouldn’t think of going somewhere else!Kelsey K.Roseville, California
Dr. Van Wagenen truly cares about his patients- every time I go in for an appointment he spends time talking to me about how I am feeling, and I always feel like he is truly listening. He wants more than anything to heal people from their pain and his passion shines through in his work. I have only had a couple appointments and am already feeling great relief from my neck pain from a car accident. I am so excited to continue this journey and get back to 100%!Ava B.Roseville, California
