Chiropractic care helps improve your quality of life through many natural techniques, and myofascial release is one of them. It can be frustrating and even feel hopeless when you suffer from chronic pain, and many people don’t want to go straight into surgery or be put on heavy medications. We understand and are proud to offer you a natural solution to for your medical care needs.
We use one-on-one sessions for therapy, so you receive the individualized attention that will improve your health. Here we’ll explore how Myofascial Release is beneficial to your body, what it is, and how to know if it’s right for you.
What is Myofascial Release?
Fascia is mainly made of collagen and is the connective tissue that is under the skin. Its purpose has to do with stabilizing muscles and certain organs. It is similar to ligaments the way they connect bones, except fascia deals with the muscles. While some people try to handle Myofascial pain syndrome on their own, a chiropractor is going to give you the best results because they have the education and experience to locate trigger points within your myofascial tissues.
Myofascial Release Therapy offers a natural way to relieve those who have suffered from an injury or have dealt pain in areas like the back and shoulder. It works to decrease the tightness of the tissue that promotes bodily motion by stretching the fascia. Being able to move freely can be life-altering – especially if you’ve had to apply pressure to a different part of your body to prevent yourself from experiencing pain where you’re injured.
Who will benefit from it?
Many people have benefited from this type of therapy, and the best approach is to schedule a free consultation with your chiropractor to find out if you’re a good candidate. People who suffer from myofascial pain and headaches have shown improvements when receiving these treatments. Often, your chiropractor will pair myofascial release with other natural methods of treatment to ensure you get the best overall care and comfort with each session.
You’ll also find that after you’ve had sessions in myofascial release therapy and you become comfortable with your body again, your chiropractor will work with you to help prevent future pain in your muscles. Many people go to chiropractors to prevent myofascial pain from occurring in the first place, and if you think you’re at risk of developing it, don’t hesitate to make regular appointments.
What are the causes and symptoms of Myofascial pain?
Myofascial pain often begins after injuries or when you overuse a particular part of your body such as the shoulder, and you develop tight muscle fibers (which are also known as trigger points). Some injuries can’t be avoided because they are caused by a sudden accident while others can be prevented by not straining your muscles when lifting heavy objects and using correct posture.
If you have a job that requires a motion repeated continually, whether it’s sitting at a desk or changing tires all day, you’re at a higher risk of developing myofascial pain. Also, if you find yourself clenching your body due to stress and tension often, you may start to notice trigger points because of the constant tightening of the muscles.
You might not feel the symptoms of myofascial pain immediately because they develop over time. At first, you may push through the pain thinking it will go away. Many people do this because we’ve all had our fair share of dealing with pain in our joints and muscles, but when the aches persist, it’s time to make an appointment with your chiropractor. Some people even start to lose sleep because the pain becomes so intense. You may also feel a knot that is tender in your muscles.
How do I get started relieving the pain?
The first step you need to take is to pick up the phone and schedule a consultation. When it comes to the health of your body, don’t hesitate to ask a licensed chiropractor about your options.
