What is Myofascial Release Therapy in Huntington NY?

Family Chiropractors

Myofascial release therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness in Huntington. There are a number of conditions and symptoms that myofascial release therapy addresses. Many patients seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip, or virtually pain in any area containing soft tissue. Other conditions treated by myofascial release therapy include Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder, carpal tunnel syndrome, or possibly fibromyalgia or migraine headaches. Patient symptoms usually include:

  • Tightness of the tissues that restricts motion or pulls the body out of alignment, causing individuals to favor and overuse one hip or shoulder, for example
  • A sense of excessive pressure on muscles or joints that produces pain
  • Pain in any part or parts of the body, including headache or back pain.

How does Myofascial Release Work?

Chiropractic Huntington NY MassageYour doctor or therapist at Balance Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Huntington will gently massage the myofascia and feel for stiff or tightened areas. Normal myofascia should feel pliable and elastic. The doctor or therapist will begin massaging and stretching the areas that feel rigid with light manual pressure. They will then aid the tissue and supportive sheath in releasing pressure and tightness. The process is repeated multiple times on the same trigger point and on other trigger points until the doctor or therapist feels the tension is fully released.
