Myofascial release is a type of massage therapy often used to treat myofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues. These tissues surround and support the muscles throughout your body. The pain usually originates from specific points within your myofascial tissues called trigger points.
Myofascial release is a manual therapy, allowing the chiropractor to feel the tension in the body to apply the best pressure and movement to provide relief.
In order to properly diagnose myofascial pain, Dr. Klein will start with getting a medical history and performing an examination, and once confirmed to be myofascial pain, he will recommend treatment.
