Hey there! As a myotherapist, I'm often asked about myofascial release and how it can help with muscle pain and dysfunction. Let's have a look into how this technique can benefit you and what is involved with this treatment option.
Myofascial release is a type of manual therapy that involves the application of gentle pressure to the myofascial connective tissue. This tissue can become tight and restricted due to many factors such as injury, overuse or poor posture. By releasing the tension in the myofascial tissue, myofascial release can improve range of motion and reduce pain.
One key benefit of myofascial release is that it can assist to address the underlying cause of your pain or dysfunction. For example, if you have chronic neck pain due to poor posture, myofascial release can help to release the tension in the affected muscles and improve your posture, therefore reducing your pain in the long term.
Myofascial release is a safe and non-invasive technique that can be used to complement other forms of treatment such as physiotherapy, chiropractic and massage therapy. This treatment is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels, and can be adapted to suit your individual needs and goals.
