Myofascial Release Therapy Ideal For Acute And Chronic Pain
People with busy, action-packed lives often experience pain in the joints, or in the major muscle groups of the neck, back, or legs and they don't always have a full understanding of exactly why.
Over time, tension in these critical areas can mount up to the point of actually feeling a sports injury, even though the victims of this pain may not necessarily be active people.
One of the best solutions is to use physical stimulation to get the muscles and surrounding tissue to relax as much as possible, therefore exercising the most effective ways to accomplish this quickly.
This type of Myofascial Massage in New Jersey therapy differs from a typical deep tissue massage in two important ways. First, while massaging the muscle tissue itself is always important, myofascial release directly targets the fascia, which is the connective material that links different types of tissue together within the body.
The reason why this type of tissue is targeted is because of its direct relationship with surrounding muscle groups. Muscle tension that builds of the distress causes an unnatural contraction of the muscle fibers,swelling of to surrounding connective fibers. Increasing pressure on fascia allows a sufficient amount of blood flow to return to the area, which can help to stave off inflammation. This will simultaneously cause muscles in the general area of focus to relax, and will also have a positive effect on the body's nervous system.
Sometimes this can be much more effective than trying to exert a force on the muscles themselves, which might have a tendency to tense up even more as a natural resistance reaction, and that's counterproductive to the goals of the therapy session.
In addition to this, people suffering from inflammatory conditions that affect tissues outside of the muscles, known as fibrosis, require this type of indirect stimulation in order to get any results at all out of a massage therapy session.
The second difference is that a typical New Jersy therapy session usually involves a variety of different pressures and positions designed to stretch the muscle tissue out and get it to relax. Myofascial release, usually involves the therapist pinpointing the most concentrated area of stress muscle tissue, and pressing down with a steady and relatively hard amount of force.
Even if it begins to become a little uncomfortable for the person undergoing treatment, the pressure is maintained. This can lead to feelings of temporary tension immediately following these types of therapy sessions, although people that experience these side effects should not be concerned.
After a good night's rest, the feeling of extra tension should subside, and you'll be left with what feels like a brand new body.
