The physical therapists at Rehab Dynamics use a variety of techniques to ensure patients are getting the best treatment possible. One of these treatment options is myofascial release therapy. Myofascial release therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. There are several conditions and symptoms that myofascial release therapy can alleviate including chronic back and neck pain, stiff joint and limited range of motion to name a few.
Myofascial restrictions can be caused be trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures. These restrictions can produce pain sensitive structures that typically will not appear on standard medical tests including x-rays, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.
