An estimated 1 in 5 adults in the US experience chronic pain, and it’s the number one cause of disability worldwide. There are many different causes of chronic pain and just as many different treatments for it. One important and highly effective treatment in the management of muscle and soft tissue-related pain is Myofascial Release Therapy, available right here at Utopia Salon and Spa.
A Special Kind of Massage
While all kinds of Massage can help ease muscle tension and pain, Myofascial Release is especially useful for managing chronic muscle tension and pain. And while most forms of Massage focus on relaxing muscles, Myofascial Release Therapy focuses on releasing fascial restrictions that put pressure on sensitive tissues causing pain and restricted movement.
What is Fascia?
Fascia is the thin layer of connective tissue that encases and surrounds all of your organs, bones, nerves, blood vessels, and muscles and helps keep everything in place. When stressed by injury, inflammation, or even surgery these connective tissues can tighten up causing tension and pain. Because fascial restrictions do not show up on standard imaging studies, many sufferers don’t get proper treatment to relieve their pain.
How is Myofascial Release Therapy Performed?
Myofascial Release uses gentle sustained pressure to stretch and lengthen tissues to break up areas of fascial restriction. A single treatment will bring some relief, but follow-up sessions of the course a few weeks will promote healing to relieve pain and restore flexibility and function. Our dedicated Physical Therapist, Bill, will work with you to customize a therapy schedule based on your specific needs. Bill has over 41 years of experience and has extensive training in Myofascial Release Therapy. His main goal is to help people live fuller lives with less pain. He is available for treatments at Utopia Salon and Spa in Vineland, NJ every Tuesday and Thursday from 12 pm - 7 pm.
What Conditions Can Benefit From Myofascial Release Therapy?
Anyone with muscle pain or tension will likely benefit from Myofascial Release, but there are some specific conditions that this therapy can be especially beneficial for. Those diagnosed with Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, migraines, tension headaches, back and neck pain, spinal issues like Scoliosis and bulging discs, and sports or repetitive stress-related muscle injuries may all benefit from this therapy.
