Myofascial Release / NMT
In your opinion does myofascial release achieve results strictly through mechanical means or is there a neuromuscular element?
Often, while I am deeply cruising a muscle by "riding the wave" of its fascial release, I experience a slowdown or "thickness" as I near the neuromuscular attachment site. By honoring this slowdown while maintaining pressure, it usually resumes/continues releasing within a fairly brief amount of time. To me, this is clear physical, experiential evidence of a neuromuscular component to Myofacial release techniques.
