Myofascial Release Technique

Are you dealing with chronic tension and tightness around your trigger points?  If this is the case, you could be suffering from myofascial pain syndrome. At Lake Country Physical Therapy & Sportscare, we utilize the myofascial release technique to help patients overcome this issue and restore their quality of life.

All the muscles in your body are surrounded and supported by myofascial tissue. When these tissues become subject to myofascial pain syndrome, treatment will need to be administered to relieve symptoms of pain at discomfort. One of the best types of treatment is the myofascial release technique, which is a form of massage therapy.

During the myofascial release technique, our practitioner will gently massage and manipulate the tightened myofascial tissues to loosen this area.  Healthy myofascial tissue should feel pliable and elastic, not stiff or tightened. Through the use of this technique, trigger point tension is relieved, eliminating myofascial pain syndrome in the process.
