Myofascial release is a whole body pain-relieving therapy that treats chronic and acute myofascial disorders.
These pain disorders are particularly frustrating as the source is not able to be determined by ordinary medical devices such as CAT scans or MRIs.
At our rehabilitation clinic, our team has been able to utilize myofascial release to treat the pain of headaches, backaches, and whiplash along with dozens of other debilitating injuries. Our entire chiropractic team is well trained in this technique and has had great success in relieving our patients of acute and chronic pain.
At Esquire Orthopedic Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine, we will work closely with you to find the exact points of your pain.
Myofascial release may eliminate your pain by applying sustained pressure to your trigger point areas.
Car Accident Injury and Myofascial Release
The sustained force of impact that your body endures in a car accident can lead to acute and chronic pain that may be eased by myofascial release techniques. Sometimes hard to define at first due to the large number of injuries your body sustained, the development of myofascial pain after a car accident is a common condition treated by Dr. Droege and his team at Esquire.
Even a low impact crash can develop into myofascial pain syndrome if not treated properly from the start. With myofascial release, the chronic and acute pain in your neck can dissipate, restoring full function to the area.
Work-Related Injury and Myofascial Release
Repetitive motions used by workers all over Missouri and Illinois such as constant typing and factory working can cause the myofascial tissue to tighten and begin to painfully restrict motion. Esquire has become accustomed to seeing these types of injuries and can quickly zero in on the cause.
In order to ensure that you are able to return to work, our chiropractic team will apply myofascial release to your affected area over a series of office visits. As the fascial tissue begins to relax you should notice a marked decrease in the level of pain and may soon be able to return to work.
Sports Injury and Myofascial Release
Healthy tissue is crucial for an athlete who needs to have a full range of motion and flexibility. The trauma endured by the repetitive motions of certain sports like baseball and tennis can lead to the tightening of the myofascial pain and loss of motion for the athlete.
Myofascial release is used by our chiropractors on all parts of the body, including the elbow and shoulder joints. These joints are particularly vulnerable to developing painful symptoms due to their constant use in a number of different sports. We can recognize the pressure points based on the sport that you play and get started on myofascial release to loosen up those tight areas and relieve the pain that it is causing you.
