Myofascial Release is a gentle blend of massage and stretching using traction, pressure and positioning of the body to initiate relaxation of muscle spasms and break painful adhesions in the fascia. This technique may be use to ease pressure in the fibrous bands of connective tissue (fascia) that encase and connect muscles, organs, vessels, bones, cartilage and nerves throughout the body. Injury and scarring of the fascia is a major cause of pain and improper motion and can lead to long term consequences. Myofascial release is used for many conditions and for people of all ages. .his technique makes use of specialized drop-piece mechanisms in the table to assist the adjustment.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point is a sensitive area in the muscle or connective tissue (fascia) that becomes painful when compressed. Pressing on a trigger point can cause referred pain and can help identify the external area in the body generating the pain. Trigger point myotherapy also known as neuromuscular therapy or sometimes bodywork therapy consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressure on the areas of muscle spasm. Pressure is applied with the fingers, knuckles, and/or elbow to effectively alleviate the muscle spasm. Neuromuscular therapy works by relaxing the muscle in order to release stored lactic acid and encourage blood and oxygen circulation to the muscle to avoid the production of more lactic acid.
