Common Conditions Treated with Myofascial Release
When muscles become constricted or tight it can cause pain and movement restrictions which can have a significant impact on your mobility. This pain-relieving technique helps to reverse this by freeing up the constricted muscles, allowing for quicker movement without discomfort.
Many conditions can be treated with myofascial release. Some of the most common ones are:
Sports Injury –
Sports injuries such as sprains and strains can also cause muscle stiffness. The affected area will be massaged to loosen up the muscles and allow for a quicker healing process.
Tension Headaches/Migraines –
Relieves the pain of chronic tension headaches and migraines by massaging the tightened muscles around the head and neck.
This condition can also cause stiffness in multiple muscles. The affected areas will be determined and then massaged.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) –
Myofascial release is used to massage the muscles around the jaw in many patients with temporomandibular joint disorder. This reduces pain and inflammation while also increasing jaw mobility.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome –
Patients suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome may benefit from myofascial release therapy, which involves massaging the muscles in their hands, wrists, and/or arms to improve function and mobility.
Myofascial Pain Syndrome –
This is the most common condition treated with myofascial release, and it can affect a wide range of your muscles. Your myofascial pain’s “trigger points” are identified and massaged away.
Venous Insufficiency –
Myofascial release can help reduce the amount of blood pooled in the veins and allow for more effective blood flow, reducing vein pain. Our physical therapists have a thorough understanding of which pressure points to target to restore the fascia to its normal elastic state.
