Do you have chronic muscle pain? Is this pain restricting your day-to-day physical activity? You could be experiencing symptoms of myofascial pain. This pain radiates from sensitive trigger points throughout muscle tissue. Muscular discomfort and upper back pain are common results of repetitive motions and muscle weakness.
This discomfort can be relieved through myofascial release therapy. This treatment usually takes place during a massage therapy session.
Who can benefit from myofascial release?
People with myofascial pain syndrome
While nearly everyone has experienced some sort of muscle tension pain, the discomfort related with myofascial pain syndrome is persistent and often worsens over time. Manual myofascial therapy and direct pressure techniques can relieve sore muscles and alleviate chronic pain.
People who experience chronic headaches
Myofascial release for headaches provides long term relief. Think about what kind of life you can lead without chronic headaches.
By having your therapist gently massage the muscles in and around your neck, that painful tension will be released and your headaches will appear less frequently. This is an effective way to eliminate headache symptoms for good. When people use over the counter painkillers for headaches, it’s like putting a Band-Aid over a wound that needs stitches to heal.
People with venous insufficiency
Venous insufficiency is condition that occurs when the flow of blood through veins is inadequate, causing blood to pool in the legs. It’s mostly caused by blood clots or varicose veins. You may experience an aching and painful feeling in the affected leg. Myofascial release can be used in conjunction with other treatments to reduce the pooling and the pain caused by venous insufficiency.
