The fascia is the tissue that covers all of our muscles, bones, and organs like a spider's web, providing support and connection throughout the entire body. When the fascia becomes restricted, due to injury or inflammation, a person experiences significant tension and pain. Myofascial release is a specific form of massage therapy that relaxes the fascia and allows it to release. This kind of massage is often slow, beginning with a light pressure, increasing as the muscles and fascia warm up and respond to the therapeutic touch. Myofascial release is a manual therapy, allowing the clinician to feel the tension in the body to apply the best pressure and movement to provide relief.
Myofascial pain is a condition that causes chronic pain (chronic pain is any pain that lasts for a long time, usually more than a few months). The condition puts pressure on sensitive pressure points in muscles, which causes pain. The pain can occur in what seem to be unrelated parts of the body.
Seeing a chiropractor for myofascial pain is a lot any other doctor appointment. The appointment typically begins with some preliminary items, such as getting a medical history and filling out some paperwork. After these items have been taken care of, the chiropractor will discuss the patient’s symptoms with them to confirm that the pain is myofascial pain. The chiropractor may perform an examination.
Once they’re able to confirm the cause of the pain, the chiropractor will recommend a treatment. Often, the recommended treatment is massage therapy, which may be done at the same appointment or scheduled for another day. If a patient’s pain turns out not to be myofascial pain, the chiropractor will let the patient know and recommend a different, appropriate course of treatment.
