Myofascial stretching is a form of stretching that addresses the shortening of the elasto-collagenous complex in order to release a fascial restriction. Myofascial stretching is different from traditional stretching in that it affects all parts of the elasto-collagenous complex, not just the elastin or muscular component. This allows for a more permanent release and also helps rehydrate the ground substance.
