Charleston Myofascial Release
Whether you suffer from migraine headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder strain, knee problems, sciatica or chronic soreness associated with an illness or injury, consult with Stone Spine & Disc certified chiropractors in Charleston for information on effective myofascial release therapy treatments that offer rapid pain relief and long lasting results.
When Is Myofascial Therapy Necessary?
Overtime, chronic pain and muscle tension can cause muscle contractions and imbalances in surrounding fascia tissue that can limit your range of movement, impede proper blood flow and may even inhibit your body’s ability to fight off infection. Chronic pain eventually causes muscles to contract and literally reduce in size affecting tendons and nerves and ultimately resulting in varying degrees of chronic pain and discomfort. Licensed Stone Spine & Disc specialists in Charleston provide thorough evaluations and design personalized treatment programs to alleviate a range of conditions and promote overall health and well-being.
How Does Myofascial Therapy Work?
Stone Spine & Disc practitioners begin treatment with a full clinical evaluation to locate specific problem areas and trigger points within muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Affected areas are gently massaged and stretched with gentle yet steady pressure to work out knots and adhesions and to elongate contracted muscles in order to heal the surrounding tissue. A typical treatment session lasts for about 30 minutes although some practitioners may recommend an hour or more depending on the severity of your condition. Our Charleston chiropractic clinic is fully equipped with various therapeutic tools such as foam rollers and additional specialty equipment that may be used to further release muscle tightness according to your specific needs. Myofascial therapy techniques do not involve the use of creams or oils, as well as offer a safe and drug-free alternative for relief from chronic pain associated and caused by a range of factors and conditions.
Consult with a Stone Spine & Disc specialist for a personalized program that not only offers relief from chronic pain but will also improve blood circulation and flexibility as well as stimulate proper lymphatic functioning that boosts the body’s natural healing functions.
