Myofascial release Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire
Myofascial release in Hertfordshire
Myofascial release is an effective treatment often used to help treat various conditions including chronic pain, back pain, neck pain and various sports injuries.
Myofascial release is a treatment we offer at our injury clinic in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire local to Hemel Hempstead.
Myo + fascia = Myofascia.
Myo means muscle and fascia is the thin connective tissue that is wrapped around the muscle.
Myofascial release is a form of manual therapy and involves using gentle pressure and stretching to the myofascial tissue, which can help to reduce pain, improve your range of motion, and promote healing.
During a myofascial release session, your injury specialist will use their hands to apply sustained pressure to specific areas of the body, focusing on areas of tightness or restriction. They may also use gentle stretching and massage techniques to release tension in the myofascial tissue.
Some of the common conditions that myofascial release can be used for include:
Chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia, chronic headaches, or back pain
Muscle tension and tightness, including conditions such as muscle knots or trigger points
Sports injuries, such as strains or sprains
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, which can cause pain and stiffness in the jaw and face
Postural imbalances or poor body mechanics that can lead to pain and dysfunction over time
Scar tissue or adhesions that can develop after surgery or injury and cause pain or restricted movement
Stress-related tension and anxiety
