Myofascial release is a type of physical therapy that uses gentle, sustained pressure to stretch and loosen tight myofascial tissues and alleviate pain, such as in the neck or other areas of the body.
At Back and Neck Pain Center, we offer myofascial release therapy in Clearwater, FL, from an experienced chiropractor, Dr. Monte Venis.
Myofascial release can help our patients live life without pain and enjoy their best health possible. Schedule an appointment today to learn more.
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.
When you schedule an appointment for myofascial release therapy with Dr. Venis at Back and Neck Pain Center, 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 treatment plan aimed at helping you feel better so you can engage in your favorite activities once again.
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.
