Myofascial Release Treatments

Myofascial release is extremely effective in pain management and increasing flexibility. Soft tissue injuries, either acute or chronic, will lead to inflammation and tissue repair. Sometimes injured tissues do not heal properly resulting in adhesions, scar tissue, or trigger points in the belly of the muscle. Many patients seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, neck, hip pain or virtually pain in any area containing soft tissue.

Myofascial release techniques aim to break up tension, blockage and adhesions within the muscle and push out stagnant toxins in the affected area. This allows the soft tissue to heal in the proper lines of stress yielding pliable contractile tissue, allowing the muscle to move more easily and effectively.

Our center utilizes a variety of myofascial release techniques depending on the type and severity of the condition:

  • Cupping- extremely effective in re-circulating blood in injured tissues by removing stagnant blood so new blood with nutrients can flow in.
  • Gua sha- uses specialized tools to break through adhesions.
  • Trigger point therapy- constant acupressure to fatigue muscle spasms.
