Myofascial Pain Treatment in Greenville, SC

Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder caused by tightness and sensitivity in your myofascial tissues. These tissues provide internal structure by surrounding and holding every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber and muscle into place. Fascia are made of collagen giving them a texture that allows them to be elastic. Fascia contains nerves that make it almost as sensitive as skin. 

 

Fascia tension was previously rarely considered when trying to determine the cause of chronic pain. In recent years, we have a better understanding of how important fascia is in stabilising function and keeping our body well. 

 

Chiropractic Care for Myofascial Pain Syndrome 

By using myofascial release therapy, chiropractor or massage therapists should be able to help you find the pain relief you have been searching for. This technique is performed by applying gentle pressure on the sore muscles over a period of time. 

Benefits of myofascial relief therapy include: 

 

  • Decreased Muscle Tension

  • Lower Pain Levels 

  • Increased Flexibility 

 

Doctors will seek out the stiff or tightened areas to find specific trigger points that feel tense. They will then perform a myofascial massage to stretch those rigid areas repeatedly with manual pressure until the tension is fully released. 

 

While stretching can help to a certain extent, fascia runs through the muscles as well as around them rendering myofascial massage a more effective remedy. Myofascial release therapy offers a wide variety of benefits to your health and wellness including: 

 

  • Increased blood flow 

  • Improved joint range of motion 

  • Decreased overall effects of stress on the body 

  • Reduced soreness 

  • Improved tissue recover 

  • Improved neuromuscular efficiency 

  • Encouraged movement of your lymph, which helps your body fight infection

 

Myofascial therapy is designed to relieve pain by applying gentle pressure on the muscles. The area the doctors massage may not be where you feel the most pain or even where the pain originates. This is due to the fact that myofascial release is designed to work on the brouder network of muscles that may be causing the issues.
