Myofascial Pain

Myofascial pain originates at sites of tensile pressures created by trauma, surgical responses or inflammatory responses. Tensile pressures of up to 2000 pounds per square inch originate on pain sensitive structures and typically do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)

A typical medical approach is to drug the patient so that they are temporarily free from pain. However, this doesn’t address the ‘straight-jacketing’ of pressure causing the pain. Even traditional physical, occupational or massage therapy treats the symptoms of Myofascial pain rather than fixing up the ‘straight-jacket’. That’s where Myofascial release succeeds in eliminating the pressure of the ‘straight-jacket’, that causes the symptoms. Thus, Myofascial release proves to be effective in treating the entire mind/body complex, thereby infusing a fresh burst of energy in you.
