What Is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial release is a form of osteopathic manipulative treatment. It focuses on the myofascial tissues, which surround and support muscles throughout the body. Myofascial tissues contain trigger points. When these points are stiff or tense, they can interfere with the proper functioning of your muscles, leading to pain and other symptoms. During myofascial release, trigger points are massaged in order to release tension and promote fluid, pain-free muscle movements.
What Can Myofascial Release Treat?
Myofascial release can be used to address a number of issues, including:
- Myofascial pain syndrome (chronic sensitivity and tightness in the myofascial tissues)
- Generalized muscle pain and tension
- Lower back pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Chronic headaches
- Venous insufficiency (a condition that causes blood to pool in the deep veins of the leg)
Myofascial release may be used in conjunction with other treatments to help you enjoy the highest level of pain relief possible.
What to Expect During Myofascial Release
Just like any type of therapeutic massage, myofascial release may cause some temporary discomfort as the tissues are encouraged to relax. However, the overall experience should feel good. Since it is difficult to pinpoint which trigger points are responsible for pain and discomfort, the massage may take place across a broad area of your body. In some cases, the trigger point that is responsible for pain is actually rather far from what seems to be the source of the problem!
Each session might take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour or so. Afterward, you might be a little sore. Some patients experience mild nausea or lightheadedness, so you should be sure to get adequate rest following your appointments.
Most patients require multiple sessions to experience optimum results. After your initial consultation with our team, we will be able to set up a schedule for your myofascial release program that we believe will be most beneficial for your unique circumstances.
