La Crescenta ChiropracticMyofascial Release
Are you experiencing chronic pain and discomfort from stiff and sore muscles and are looking for relief with long-lasting results? Certified La Crescenta Chiropractic chiropractors are trained and experienced to alleviate muscle tension and stress through carefully applied pressure and manipulation of tissue that relieves chronic pain and restores optimal physical functioning.
What Is Myofascial Release?
Categorized as a soft tissue therapy, myofascial release is ideal for treatment of muscle immobility and chronic pain and offers relief from muscle tightness while simultaneously addressing a range of concerns that include:
- Muscle spasms, soreness and chronic pain
- Sports-related injuries
- Correction of muscle imbalances
- Poor posture
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- General soreness and chronic pain
When Is Myofascial Release Required?
Restriction of the connective tissue surrounding the muscle fiber not only causes soreness and discomfort, but can develop into long-term problems if left unaddressed. Fascia tightness can be traced to disease, overuse, or an inactive lifestyle and trauma or injury in a particular area can lead to myofascial dysfunctions that limit range of motion and compress muscles or nerves causing decreased blood circulation. The result is often chronic pain and reduced physical performance. La Crescenta Chiropractic’s licensed chiropractors offer personalized assessments to determine whether myofascial release is the right chiropractic treatment for you.
Certified Myofascial Release Therapists
COMPANY% practitioners apply myofascial therapy techniques that allow connective tissues to loosen and become increasingly flexible. Our specialists offer chiropractic care and advanced methods to stretch and release adhesions and condition your body to release natural endorphins. Although myofascial release techniques are gentle, they have a significant and profound effect on the body’s tissues that can offer lasting relief and a range of benefits.
The Benefits of Myofascial Release Therapy:
- Improved blood circulation – Releases knots and tension allowing for better blood flow.
- Increase in range of motion and flexibility – Connective tissue becomes more flexible through the release of fascia adhesions.
- Maintenance of muscle strength – Muscle tension release stretches muscles allowing for improved physical function.
- Strengthened immune system – Myofascial release promotes improved functioning and flow of the lymph system to help fight infection in the body.
- Relives muscle soreness – Improved circulation to connective tissues and muscles.
Types of Myofascial Release Therapy
Depending on your condition and specific requirements, certified La Crescenta Chiropractic chiropractors offer a range of manual myofascial release techniques within a personalized treatment plan that may include connective tissue massage, foam rolling, strain/counter strain techniques, structural integration and soft tissue mobilization among others. Since fascia organs cover the entire body and muscles are intricately linked, the release of myofascial restrictions will relieve tension in the entire fascial system and allow the body to steadily heal itself.
