The Solution to Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is a condition that causes pain and discomfort in the muscles and soft tissues due to the development of trigger points or tight knots of muscle fibers. These trigger points can be caused by overuse, poor posture, injury, or stress. Over time, MPS can lead to chronic pain and limit mobility and overall quality of life. Myofascial release therapy involves gentle pressure and stretching to release tension and restore proper function to the affected muscles and tissues.

What is Myofascial Release Therapy?

Myofascial release therapy is a soft tissue therapy that targets the fascia, a thin layer of connective tissue that surrounds our muscles, bones, and organs. It’s commonly used to treat chronic pain disorders, such as myofascial pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, and sports injuries. The pain experienced during these conditions originates from trigger points, which are tight knots of muscle fibers that can cause referred pain in other areas of the body.

Myofascial release therapy applies gentle pressure and sustained stretching to the affected area to release tension and restore proper function to the affected muscles and tissues. It stimulates and regulates fibroblasts, the cells responsible for producing and maintaining the connective tissue in the body, to break down excessive connective tissue deposits, such as scar tissues. It encourages the growth of new, more resilient connective tissues and promotes tissue hydration.

How Myofascial Release Therapy Works

At the beginning of a myofascial release in Las Vegas, your medical professional will identify the areas of restricted fascia and measure the loss of motion and symmetry in the body. During your session, the therapist applies pressure directly to the skin without oils, creams, or machinery. This allows them to accurately locate and target fascial “knots” and apply appropriate pressure to release the fascia. The therapist may also use stretching and other techniques to help release tension in the affected area.

Over time, the therapist will track your progression by measuring improvements in range of motion, muscular function, and reduction in pain. Myofascial release therapy can be performed with other therapies, such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, physical therapy, and occupational therapy, to enhance their effectiveness. By targeting specific areas of fascia, myofascial therapy can prepare patients for more aggressive strengthening exercises that provide further pain relief, especially in patients with restricted flexibility and movement.
