Pain in various parts of the body can be caused by stiffness of a deep tissue webbing called fascia that runs throughout the body. Tension in a particular area can lead to unbearable pain and restricted motion of other parts of the body. Undergoing Myofascial Release Therapy is the effective alternative medicine that naturally resolves health problems and symptoms caused by myofascial tension.
What does Myofascial Release Treat?
Some of conditions successfully treated with Myofascial Release include
Lower back and pelvic pa
Temporomandibular joint dysfunction
Neck dysfunction (alignment)
Neck and shoulder pain
Hip and knee pain
Repetitive strain injury
How is a myofascial release performed?
Fascial stretching is a neuromyofascial manual therapy method that focuses on the connective tissue system rather than isolated muscle treatment. To break that down, fascial stretch therapy involves hands-on therapy between you and a therapist where the therapist manipulates your muscles to stretch your connective muscle tissue, rather than focusing on one muscle at a time.
Myofascial release session can last longer as there is more one-on-one needed due to this long duration, low load hold
So if you have yet to try myofascial release massage, and you still have pain, maybe you should give it a shot, you could get your pain-free life back.
Common problems caused by damaged or tight fascia include:
- Muscle pain and spasms
- Back and neck pain
- Recurring injuries
- Reduced flexibility
- Poor posture
- And more…
And common reasons for fascia losing its suppleness include:
- Physical traumas such as falls, surgery, and sports injuries
- Intense physical activity
- Systemic inflammation (usually resulting from an unhealthy lifestyle)
- Poor posture
- Lack of stretching
- Prolonged sitting or standing
So, as you can see, what many people think are muscular or skeletal problems are actually myofascial problems. And they must be dealt with differently.
One of the most effective ways to do this is the myofascial release.
Myofascial release loosens the fascia to reintroduce blood flow, promote healing and relieve tension. You may find that the stretching therapist sometimes works in an area different from where the pain originates. That is because myofascial release aims to work on the broad network of muscles. Again, because our fascia is an interconnected network, a reduction in tension throughout the entire body is needed for effective pain relief.
Most of our clients are using our Stretching Therapist Services to assist with injury rehab.
Stretching the fascia breaks up scar tissue and increases the range of motion in injured areas as well as elongates the tissue and muscles around the joints and healing areas.
