Myofascial Release is a type of physical therapy used to treat myofascial pain syndrome, a chronic pain disorder involving your muscles “trigger points.” This pain disorder causes sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues, decreasing function and mobility.
Myofascial Release focuses on diminishing pain and boosting overall function and motion by easing the aches and pains within these trigger points. Zeroing on a specific trigger point can be difficult, which is why this treatment option is used over a large muscle and tissue area.
Myofascial relieves pain associated with:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain (Frozen Shoulder)
- Pelvic Pain
- Leg Pain
- Chronic Pain
- Bulging Disc
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Headaches and Migraines
Myofascial Release treatments take place during a therapeutic massage session. Your massage therapy will gently massage the myofascia, focusing on stiff or tightened areas. The process is repeated within the targeted area(s) until the tension has completely diminished.
This type of treatment option is 100% safe and effective and relatively risk-free. Many patients with acute and chronic pain enjoy Myofascial Release because of the quick and long-lasting relief it provides.
