Relieve Your Muscle Tension with Myofascial Release
Are You Ready to Say Goodbye to Painful Muscles?
Our Eden Prairie, MN physical therapists have specialized training in hi-tech myofascial release techniques using percussion technology. Myofascial release using a Percussor is a safe and effective treatment used for a variety of soft tissue dysfunctions.
Are you living with stiff or tight muscles? If so, you have what is called myofascial pain caused by restricted fascia surrounding the muscles. Tight fascia is the tough connective tissue that covers all of our muscles from head to toe.
Tension in the fascia can be caused by physical and emotional trauma, repetitive use, overuse, underuse, or bad posture. Restrictions in the muscle fascia inhibit the flow of blood, lymph, and also cerebral spinal fluid resulting in a variety of pain conditions.
The Myofascial Percussor is a mechanical device that delivers waves of percussion impulses deep into the myofascial tissues of the body, promoting increased blood and lymphatic flow, decreased muscle spasm and pain. It targets the root cause of pain in a more effective way than more traditional myofascial release methods.
If your stiff or tight muscles limit your daily life, don’t hesitate to request a complimentary consultation. Myofascial Percussion Therapy treatments at Wellspring Health Center may benefit you.
One of our Eden Prairie, MN, physical therapists would be happy to meet with you and discuss how myofascial release can benefit you!
Does myofascial release treat my condition?
When the fascia that surrounds your muscles becomes restricted or tight, it can significantly impact your mobility. These restrictions can cause pain and limitations with movement.
Fortunately, myofascial release works to reverse this by loosening up the constricted fascia surrounding the muscles, allowing for easier, pain-free movement.
There are several conditions that respond well to myofascial release. Some of the most common include:
Low Back Pain and Neck Pain
Tight muscles and fascia significantly impact the movement of the low back and neck, leading to pain, and if left untreated, degenerative changes can occur. Myofascial release techniques loosen the tight regions allowing for better function and pain-free movement.
This condition can also cause stiffness in multiple muscles. The affected areas will be determined and then massaged.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Patients with carpal tunnel syndrome can benefit from myofascial release by having the muscles in their hands, wrists, and arms treated with the myofascial release therapy using a gentle myofascial percussion device to improve function and mobility.
Myofascial release has also been known to relieve the pain of chronic headaches and migraines by gently releasing the tightened muscles around the head and neck.
Injuries can also cause muscle stiffness and restricted fascia which slows the healing process and can result in more scar tissue. Myofascial release to the affected areas will loosen up the muscles and tight fascia, allowing for a quicker, cleaner healing process.
Myofascial pain syndrome
Myofascial pain syndrome responds well to myofascial release therapy since the root cause of pain is multiple trigger points and restricted fascia surrounding the muscles and nerves. The trigger points causing myofascial pain syndrome are identified through palpation and or muscle testing and then gently released with the myofascial percussor.
Temporomandibular joint disorder
The muscles around the jaw are massaged through myofascial release in many patients with temporomandibular joint disorder. This decreases pain and inflammation, as well as increases mobility of the jaw.
If you have been diagnosed with one of the conditions listed above, or another condition that you think could benefit from myofascial release, contact our Eden Prairie, MN physical therapy office today.
