Houston, TX Chiropractors at MVMT Chiropractic Offer Myofascial Release as a Safe and Effective Hands-On Technique that Eliminates Pain and Restores Motion
Soft Tissue/Myofascial Release in Houston, TX: Myofascial Release is a safe and effective hands-on technique offered at MVMT Chiropractic that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a gentle pressure applied slowly will allow fascia to elongate.
Conditions that Can Be Relieved with Myofascial Release
Myofascial release is a specialized, hands-on therapy that affects the recovery of soft tissue and fascial tension. It also works to release restrictions within these networks, enabling hard and stuck areas to become soft and mobile again. Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.). Some of the most common conditions include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Deep, aching muscle pain
- Pain, numbness or tingling sensation in the extremities
- Muscle knots
- Immune system problems
