Why Myofascial Release Therapy for pain and stress relief?
Myofascial Release (MFR) is more beneficial to the patient than massage therapy because it has much longer lasting results. In fact, deep tissue massage actually causes rebound spasms and increased pain a few days after the massageAfter eight years of providing massage therapy, with thousands of satisfied clients, we discovered the John Barnes Approach to Myofascial Release. All of our clients at Rosemont Pain Relief Therapy have switched from massage to Myofascial Release Therapy because they are actually healing and getting better results.
Since all of the standard tests such as x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc., do not show the fascial restrictions, it is thought that an extr emely high percentage of people suffering with pain, headaches and/or lack of motion may be having fascial problems, but most go undiagnosed
Fascia is a specialized system of the body which has an appearance similar to a spider's web or a sweater. Fascia is very densely woven; covering that interpenetrates every structure of our body. The fascial system is not just a system of separate coverings: it is actually one uninterrupted structure which exists from your head to your feet. In the normal healthy state, the fascia is relaxed and wavy in configuration. It has the ability to stretch and move without restriction. When we experience physical trauma or inflammation, however, the fascia loses its flexibility. It becomes very tight, and can be a source of tension to the rest of the body. Trauma, such as a fall, whiplash, surgery or just habitual poor posture over time has a cumulative effect. The fascia can exert excessive pressure producing pain, headaches and/or restriction of motion.
Myofascial Release™ allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our therapy sessions are hands on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release™ techniques and movement therapy. The goal of Myofascial Release™ is to restore the individual's freedom, so they may return to a pain free, active lifestyle.
Many times chronic, persistent headaches, neck and back pain can be resolved with Myofascial Release to the pelvic area in addition to treating other areas of the body.Myofascial Personalized Home Treatment / Flexibility Program
