Myofascial Release

Are you experiencing chronic pain and discomfort from stiff and sore muscles and are looking for relief? Registered Healthfx Physiotherapy physical therapists are trained and experienced to alleviate muscle tension and stress through carefully applied pressure and manipulation of soft tissue that relieves chronic pain and restores optimal physical functioning.

What Is Myofascial Release?

Categorized as a soft tissue therapy, myofascial release is ideal for treatment of muscle immobility and chronic pain and offers relief from muscle tightness while simultaneously addressing a range of concerns that include:

  • Muscle spasms, soreness and chronic pain
  • Sports-related injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Correction of muscle imbalances
  • Poor posture
  • Headaches
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • General soreness and chronic pain

When Is Myofascial Release Required?

Restriction of the connective tissue surrounding  muscle may cause soreness and discomfort, this pain may become chronic if left unaddressed. Fascia tightness can be traced to overuse, or an inactive lifestyle and trauma or injury in a particular area can lead to myofascial dysfunctions that limit joint range of motion and muscle restrictions and nerve tension. The result is often chronic pain and reduced physical performance. Healthfx Physiotherapy licensed physical therapists offer personalized assessments to determine whether myofascial release is the right physiotherapy treatment for you.

Myofascial Release Therapy

Healthfx Physiotherapy practitioners apply myofascial therapy techniques that allow connective tissues to loosen and become increasingly flexible. Our physical therapists offer orthopedic care and advanced methods to stretch and release adhesions and condition your body to release natural endorphins. Although myofascial release techniques are gentle, they have a significant and profound effect on the body’s tissues that can offer lasting relief and a range of benefits.

The Benefits of Myofascial Release Therapy:

  • Improved symptoms – Releases tension allowing for pain relief.
  • Increase in range of motion and flexibility – Connective tissue becomes more flexible through the release of fascia adhesions.
  • Maintenance of muscle suppleness – Muscle tension release stretches muscles allowing for improved physical function.
  • Relives muscle soreness – Improved tension to connective tissues and muscles.

Types of Myofascial Release Therapy

Depending on your condition and specific requirements, certified Healthfx Physiotherapy physical therapists offer a range of manual myofascial release techniques within a personalized treatment plan that may include connective tissue massage, foam rolling, contract/relax techniques, and soft tissue mobilization among others. Since fascia covers the entire body, and is intricately linked, the release of myofascial restrictions will relieve tension in the entire fascial system.
