When your muscle’s connective tissue thickens due to injury, tension, overuse or inactivity, it causes acute and chronic inflammation.
Myofascial release therapy is a method of applying gentle pressure to reach, roll and stretch out muscles with the goal of loosening up deep connective tissues.
This action helps eliminate pain and restore a patient’s range of motion. The treatment is recommended for those suffering from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, slipped disks or back/ neck pain.
Many patients who experience long term, chronic musculoskeletal problems and have visited many different practitioners without success have finally found relief with myofascial release therapy.
Myofascial release focuses on the treatment of points along the body called “Centers of Coordination” (known as Cc).
While these points may not be at pain locations, these centers are responsible for normal muscle functions.
By treating “Centers of Coordination”, body & joint movement is restored in areas where there is limited motion. Myofascial relief may be found by visiting one of our talented LMTS or possibly (for localized pain) graston may be the more appropriate therapy.
