Myofascial tissues surround and support the muscles in the body. When these tissues become tight—which can happen because of injury, chronic pain, repetitive movement, or other factors—they can cause deep, persistent muscle pain or stiffness as well as a loss of joint range of motion. Myofascial release is a type of physical therapy that uses gentle, sustained pressure to stretch and loosen tight myofascial tissues and alleviate pain. At Back & Neck Pain Center in Clearwater, Florida, we offer myofascial release therapy from an experienced chiropractor, Dr. Venis, to help our patients live life without pain and enjoy their best health possible.
During myofascial release therapy, Dr. Venis will use manual pressure to locate stiff myofascial tissues. (Normal myofascia feels pliable and elastic.) He will massage and stretch the area until the tension is fully released, leading to lessened pain and better range of movement.
When you schedule an appointment with Dr. Venis at Back & Neck Pain Center in Clearwater, FL, you will have a comprehensive consultation to discuss the symptoms you’ve been experiencing, the length of time you’ve been in pain, and your medical history. This allows Dr. Venis to develop a plan aimed at helping you feel better so you can engage in your favorite activities once again.
