What Is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial release is an effective hands-on soft tissue treatment of skeletal muscle pain. The technique involves applying gentle pressure into connective tissue and fascia. The pain originates from knots causing discomfort. If not addressed on time, the disorder can lead to fatigue, depression, and behavioral disturbances. Nearly everyone experiences myofascial pain syndrome in their life. But if you experience muscle pain that persists despite self-care measures, make an appointment with our doctor for specialized myofascial release therapy.

Causes of Myofascial Pain

While the exact cause of chronic myofascial pain is still unknown, the condition is linked to several factors, including: 

  • Muscle injury due to strain or lack of muscle activity
  • Too much exposure to a cold environment
  • Chronic infections
  • Emotional stress causes muscle tension
  • Metabolic or hormonal problems such as diabetic neuropathy
  • Poor posture
  • Vitamin D and folate deficiencies

How to Manage Myofascial Pain

With a few easy techniques, you can ease the tension and reduce the pain right at home. Here are some self-care measures that can relieve myofascial pain.

  • Relax and get enough rest: Excessive stress and tension cause more pain. Stress-relieving activity can all be helpful.
  • Body care: Include plenty of fruits and vegetables in your deity and get enough sleep so that you can put your energy to cope with your pain.
  • Exercise: Ask your physical therapist about appropriate exercises which can help you cope better with pain.
