The Whelton Myofascial Referral Technique, developed by Dr. Ryan Whelton, is an effective and simple treatment that instantly relieves pain, dramatically increases range of motion, decreases muscle spasms, and accelerates healing.
Dr. Whelton has identified how every millimeter of the myofascia connects to over thirty other areas of the body in a new and very precise way. Any one point in the body has a connection to another point when an exact patient positioning and angle of pressure is applied the way Dr. Whelton has mapped it. When one of these referral point(s) is stimulated in an effort to affect an injury or painful area on another part of the body, the results are often remarkable.
There are some similarities to the Chinese acupuncture meridian system, however, this is a revolutionary new system with never before documented connections.
