Athletes push their bodies to the limits (and beyond).

Myofascial Release for Athletic Injuries

Whether your sports-related injury is recent or you've suffered the pain for a long time, treatment by myofascial release can help interrupt the cycle of inflammation, scar tissue, impairment and pain.

  1. This technique restores movement, function and relieves pain.
  2. Myofascial release is used by Medical Doctors, physical therapists, occupational therapists and Chiropractors.
  3. Treatment consists of locating the adhesion or muscle injury and applying a measured pressure and the muscle is slowly lengthened. The combination of muscle pressure and stretching lengthens tight muscles and releases trapped nerves, intervening and breaking the vicious cycle of inflammation, scar tissue, impairment and pain.
  4. Most patients see significant improvement in three to four treatments. Length of treatment will depend on your problem, your occupation, how long you have had the problem and willingness to do follow up exercises. Six to eight treatments over two to three weeks is common.
