Myofascial Release For Achy Muscles
Are Your Muscles Bothering You Lately?
Do you have tense or stiff muscles? Muscle aches and pains can have a significant impact on your daily life, but with myofascial release, sore muscles can be eliminated.
Myofascial pain is caused by muscular discomfort, and Joint Effort Physical Therapy myofascial release treatments can help you if you have this condition.
It is a form of massage-based physical therapy treatment that helps relieve pain by releasing tension in the afflicted muscles.
One of our Colorado Springs, CO physical therapists would gladly meet with you to discuss how this therapy might help you!
Conditions myofascial release may help improve
When muscles become constricted or tight, causing pain and movement restrictions, these conditions can have a significant impact on your mobility.
This therapy can provide pain relief for a wide range of injuries and diseases. This pain relieving technique helps to reverse this by freeing up the constricted muscles, allowing for quicker movement without discomfort.
Many conditions can be treated with this therapy. Some of the most common ones are:
Myofascial release can help reduce the amount of blood pooled in the veins and allow for more effective blood flow, reducing vein pain.
Myofascial pain syndrome
This is the most common condition treated with myofascial release, and it can affect a wide range of your muscles.
Your myofascial pain’s “trigger points” are identified and massaged away.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Patients suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome may benefit from myofascial release therapy, which involves massaging the muscles in their hands, wrists, and/or arms to improve function and mobility.
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
Myofascial release is used to massage the muscles around the jaw in many patients with temporomandibular joint disorder.
This reduces pain and inflammation while also increasing jaw mobility.
This condition can also cause stiffness in multiple muscles.
The affected areas will be determined and then massaged.
This therapy has also been known to relieve the pain of chronic tension headaches and migraines by massaging the tightened muscles around the head and neck.
Sports injuries such as sprains and strains can also cause muscle stiffness.
The affected area will be massaged to loosen up the muscles and allow for a quicker healing process.
