Myofascial Release

If you struggle with chronic pain and tightness throughout your body, you may suffer from a problem known as myofascial pain syndrome. This condition can send pain and other unwelcome sensation to various parts of your body while also limiting your range of motion.

Myofascial Release RentonFortunately, you can get all-natural relief through the combination of chiropractic care and a treatment modality called myofascial release at Hughes Chiropractic & Massage.

Benefits of Myofascial Release

In addition to muscles, tendons, and ligaments, your body contains a type of connective tissue known as fascia. The fascia covers these other tissues and weaves their way through them like a membranous web. This arrangement means that when fascia develops problems, the underlying tissues often suffer the effects.

Myofascial pain syndrome may stem from issues such as poor posture or uncorrected spinal alignment errors that place your tissue under constant, unnatural stress. The fascia may tighten up, limiting muscle motion painfully. Your tissues may also develop painful knots called trigger points. These knots of tight tissue can pinch nerves, sending referred pain to remote areas such as the extremities.

Myofascial release offers a drug-free, non-invasive technique for relaxing these areas of tightness. In this form of massage, your practitioner feels for knots or hard spots that need breaking up. Targeted manipulation of these areas can force the tissue to unclench, freeing your body to work as it should and easing referred pain symptoms.

Combining Chiropractic Care With Myofascial Release

Chiropractic care and myofascial release work hand in hand to provide lasting relief. Dr. Trisha Hughes makes adjustments and corrects any alignment problems that make you more vulnerable to myofascial tightness and pain.

Between chiropractic adjustment sessions, ongoing myofascial release sessions can keep your tissues from tightening up again.

This incremental approach not only helps you maintain optimal comfort and mobility; it also helps to preserve the corrections made by Dr. Hughes, allowing you to get the greatest possible benefit from your adjustments.

We can even show you how to self-administer simple kinds of myofascial release using a foam roller or other tools to help you keep your tissues limber.
