Myofascial Release Therapy is a safe and effective physical therapy used to treat myofascial pain syndrome. The treatment focuses on reducing pain by easing the tightness and tension in the trigger points. Localizing the pain to a specific trigger point is often a challenge. Because of this, myofascial release is administered over a broad area of the tissues and muscles rather than in one place.
At Chiropractic UAE in Abu Dhabi, our dedicated therapists can evaluate, identify, and treat any fascial restrictions. Our chiropractors will address your body's unique needs, whether you are suffering from repetitive stress syndrome, trauma, poor posture, or any other musculoskeletal conditions. Myofascial Release Therapy is just one of the modalities we use to help our patients restore their quality of life.
How Does Myofascial Release Work?
Myofascial release treatments are normally performed through a physical massage therapy session. One of our experienced chiropractors will gently massage the area to feel and identify tightened and stiff muscles. The therapist will begin stretching and massaging with light manual pressure on the areas that feel rigid. The procedure is repeated several times on the same trigger point and any other available trigger points until all of the tension is fully released.
Types of Myofascial Release Therapy
There are two types of Myofascial Release Therapy:
- Direct release: This is also known as deep tissue myofascial release therapy. It involves the use of weight or force to release the fascial to enhance your mobility and extensibility.
- Indirect release: This involves the use of less pressure to release the fascial.
