Myofascial Release in Carthage, TX
Myofasical Release for Repetitive Sports Injuries and Chronic Pain in the Joints, Back, and Neck
Myofascial Release Therapy in Carthage, TX: With Myofascial pain syndrome, pressure on sensitive points in the muscles or trigger points can cause pain in other parts of the body.
Myofascial Pain Can Affect the Body in Many Ways
Normal myofascia (the dense, tough tissue which surrounds and covers all of your muscles and bones) should feel pliable and elastic. Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a specific muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs (and most daily jobs are repetitive), hobbies/sports or by stress-related muscle tension.
Dr. Andries will work with patients to help them manage and release the tension that has been building. This tension would normally seem unrelated to other ailments, but this chronic pain disorder is due sensitivity and tightness in certain tissues.
Symptoms of Myofasical Pain Syndrome:
- Deep, aching pain in a muscle
- A tender knot in a muscle
- Back Pain and Neck Pain
- Sinus issues or allergies
- Immune system issues
- Numbness, tingling or pain in the extremities
Myofascial Release Therapy Helps Alleviate Pain Associated with Myofasical Pain Syndrome
Dr. Andries will find and target areas of the body that are affected by muscle tightness and utilize hands-on manipulation to release the tension. This treatment along with chiropractic adjustments, rapid release treatment therapy and trigger point therapy can help with muscle, tissue and tendon pain.
