DO YOU REMEMBER…
…being able to move freely and without pain? But then something happened, suddenly or over time, and you no longer can move without pain. Your pain is limiting what you can do and you don’t want to give up the activities you love. The usual remedies (heat, ice, pain pills, etc.) haven’t worked. Have you given up? If so, consider someone who can look at your entire body and track down the source of the pain. And, most likely, it’s not where you think it is. Most if your pain is probably what’s called referred pain and the pain you feel in one part of your body is due to something being out of balance with another part of your body.
WHAT IS FASCIA?
The fascia is a resilient connective tissue that helps hold your body together. This densely woven sheath is like a three-dimensional web that connects every part of your body to every other part of your body. Subluxation, trauma, bad posture or inflammation can cause the fascia to knot together in unhealthy ways, producing scarring and pressing on nerves, muscles, blood vessels and organs. X-rays, myelograms, CAT scans and other common diagnostics can’t detect fascia problems.
Myofascial Release Therapy locates areas that are trapping muscle and other tissues into a painful, immobile position. Then, using our hands, a slow, gentle and sustained pressure is applied into the fascial restrictions. This manual application of persistent pressure causes soft tissues such as the fascia to elongate and return to their more normal state.
We often use Myofascial Release Therapy in cases of:
- Back pain
- Chronic pain
- Sports injuries
- Restricted motion
- Carpal tunnel problems
- Depending on how much scar tissue is present, Myofascial Release can be uncomfortable at times.
But, hang in there! Improved flexibility and mobility are just around the corner.
