Tightness in muscles can restrict movement and cause pain. Myofascial release therapy is a treatment option to address muscular shortness and tightness to offer pain relief and improved function. Muscle tightness can occur in various areas of the body for many reasons. Our team at Medici Medical Arts offers myofascial release therapy as one of our treatment modalities. We can help relieve chronic pain and facilitate rehabilitation for our patients in the greater Atlanta area.
Muscle tightness can be caused by an injury or surgery, but it also may occur in any area with soft tissue. The tightness or shortness of the muscles can cause pain and movement restriction. In some cases, the limited muscle movement may cause a patient to overuse one side of the body over another. They experience a pulling or pressure from the muscles that creates pain. Myofascial pain syndrome can cause intense pain, including chronic TMJ pain, headaches, back pain and carpal tunnel syndrome pain.
Relief from Muscle Pain
Myofascial release therapy focuses on stretching and loosening the fascia to relieve pain and improve movement. Myofascial pain is caused by tightness or damage to the skeletal muscles and connective tissues. Myofascial release therapy uses muscle manipulation, massage, stretching and other techniques to address tightness and trigger points in the muscles. This can involve in-clinic sessions and at-home exercises to help loosen muscles. It is often combined with other therapies and treatments to help resolve chronic pain.
