Myofascial release therapy is a type of physical therapy that aims at muscle pain points and releases tension. This process stimulates tissue regeneration and can help relieve the symptoms of many long-term conditions.
More than 15 million people in the UK alone suffer from long-term conditions with no cure or for which traditional medicine has not worked. Myofascial release is a less invasive method to try to combat:
- Chronic Pain
- Circulatory conditions
- Sports or Muscular injury
- Anxiety-related issues
…and more. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at which conditions myofascial release has proven helpful.
- Carpal Tunnel
Carpal tunnel is a common condition, especially for those repeatedly straining their wrist in the workplace. It can be debilitating, keeping you from doing what you love or performing well in the workplace.
Myofascial release can eliminate the pain, tingling or numbness of carpal tunnel. The massage technique releases fluid build-up in the wrist joint and releases pressure on the median nerve.
It also helps to prevent Carpal Tunnel from developing into a more serious condition if you’re starting to feel the strain.
Those who suffer from Fibromyalgia experience chronic joint rigidity, intense fatigue, sleep alterations, anxiety and headaches, amongst other symptoms. Myofascial release therapy has been found to help improve the quality of sleep and life in patients with this chronic condition. In addition, the massage technique significantly reduced pain and reduced sensitive points in an experimental group.
Sciatica is a pain in the lower back or buttocks in one or sometimes both legs. Sometimes it is also accompanied by lower back pain. The condition often arises due to a slipped disk or muscular pressure. Myofascial release can help relieve the symptoms of this condition by relaxing the muscle tissue around the injury.
