Myofascial Release

Do you suffer from chronic pain? Does your entire body feel tight? You might be suffering from myofascial pain syndrome, a condition that causes pain and discomfort while also limiting your mobility and range of motion. Myofascial release is used to treat this condition. Core Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Woodbridge offers myofascial release and other services. Here's what you should know before your first appointment with our chiropractor.

Myofascial Pain

Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Fascia is a connective tissue that runs throughout your body. This tissue covers other soft tissues, and you may experience chronic pain when the fascia tightens. Myofascial pain syndrome is commonly associated with poor spinal alignment, poor posture, or stress. Tight fascia can limit your movement, pinch your nerves, and cause additional pain in the extremities.

How Myofascial Release Works

Myofascial release is a technique that targets trigger points in the body. These are rigid, dense points in the fascia that are painful and cause pain elsewhere in the body. Finding these locations can be difficult, and it is vital that a chiropractor targets these parts of the body with care.

Your myofascial tissue should feel like elastic, easy to move under the skin. When the tissue is rough and immobile, our provider can manipulate it with hands-on adjustments to improve muscle and joint movement. Manual pressure and stretching loosen up this tissue and reduce pain, much like massage therapy does. Myofascial pain is often associated with the back, but it can also affect other parts of your body. For example, some people experience it around the chest or stomach area. Our chiropractor will determine where the trigger points are located in your body so that treatment is more effective.

The Benefits of Myofascial Release

One of the biggest reasons why people consider myofascial release is that it is non-invasive and drug-free. It does not require surgery and can target specific parts of the body. You can get complete treatment for this condition with only manipulation of the tissues. Additionally, myofascial release can be paired with other chiropractic treatment techniques. For example, our chiropractor may also recommend chiropractic adjustments, which help your myofascial release results last.
