Myofascial ReleaseCorrect muscle and soft tissue problems using evidence-based myofascial release therapy from Allen County Chiropractic Wellness Center.

Acute and repetitive injuries and chronic irritations are common causes of soft tissue problems. According to studies, soft tissues can develop adhesions within, between, or around them following injuries. 

Without treatment, adhesions can compress nerves and alter muscle and joint motion, causing pain, poor mobility, and decreased athletic performance, among other undesirable symptoms. Adhesions also result in subsequent continuation of the injury cycle.

Fortunately, myofascial release is a proven treatment for soft tissues and muscles, removing adhesions and alleviating symptoms caused by the condition.

What is Myofascial Release? 

Myofascial release is manual treatment chiropractors use to restore the free motion of soft tissues by releasing entrapped nerves, lymphatics, and vasculature. The therapy also reestablishes soft tissue texture and function and is primarily designed to correct the cumulative injury cycle. 

As manual therapy, it involves manipulation of the soft tissues in  the affected areas and chiropractic adjustments to alleviate problems involving muscles, nerves, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissue. The treatment is non-invasive and safe, with no side effects.

Is Myofascial Release an Effective Treatment? 

The myofascial release therapy boasts outstanding success. The treatment realigns your body and breaks up adhesions and scar tissues to release trapped nerves. You will feel a little discomfort and duplication of the symptoms during treatment, which is a sign the problem has been identified. However, any pain quickly subsides by the end of the therapy.

Myofascial release is an evidence-based therapy with tremendous results and is commonly combined with chiropractic adjustments to increase its effectiveness. The treatment will correct existing soft muscle issues and alleviate the symptoms almost immediately. However, each case is different, so your chiropractor will design a treatment plan based on your unique needs.
