Generally, we move straight to pain medicines when muscle pain and stiffness problems do not go away on their own. Medication can offer relief but it serves as a temporary fix against soft tissue pain and fascial tension. Even standard medical technology like CAT scans, electromyography and X-rays cannot isolate the source of the pain, thus making extensive and proper treatment impossible (in a traditional sense). However, Myofascial release technique has shown positive results in treating such health problems. This no machine therapy involves applying pressure to Myofascial connective tissues, detecting fascial restrictions and releasing the pain. Sounds confusing? Well, lets us discuss about this new therapy and learn how it works.
Why Myofascial Release Technique is Your Best Option?
Fascia is a connective tissue that surrounds our body binding and protecting muscles, tendons, soft tissues and bones. Fascia also works as a fluid transportation medium in your body and provides elasticity for better movement. Physical trauma can create tension in your fascial structure and affect the mobility or stability of your body. Injured fascial tissues fail to protect your inner physiology, and the result can make you experience 2,000 pounds pressure in or around the affected area. This pain can rarely be treated with traditional medication.
However, Myofascial release technique can return the fascial tissues to their original state by applying gentle pressure to the affected area. This therapy can easily untangle the nerves and tendons from the (injured) inflexible fascial tissue, alleviating pain without the side effects. Most of us would agree that it is always wise and safe to avail side-effect free and non-invasive treatments if there is a choice. And with Myofascial release technique, there is one now.
How Does Myofascial Release Technique Work?
Issues like neck and back pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, osteoarthritis, head trauma, injury from auto accidents and carpal tunnel syndrome can cause fascial injury and pain. Pain clinic experts apply varying amount of pressure in or around the affected area to identify and isolate fascial tension and restrictions. This therapy is like massaging, but the experts apply a deeper pressure to reach and untangle the fascial tissues from the bind. This therapy makes patients more responsive to traditional and chiropractic treatment.
Say good-bye to pain medications, now that you know about a new and arguably better therapy to not just suppress but also cure fascial pain.
