Thumbs up myofascial release therapy

i have found that myo fascial release therapy has helped me tremendously while conventional physical therapy made me worse. I ALSO HAVE OSTEOARTHRITIS AND LUPUS FLARES AND AM BEING TREATED FOR ALL THREE. I HOPE THIS INFORMATION HELPS SOMEONE ELSE TOO.

Re: myofascial release therapy

Myofacial release is a great way to relieve pain and muscle spasms! It has indeed helped me. I also read a book called the "trigger point self help manual" to better learn how to help myself with trigger point pain.

Be warned, real myofascial release is a massage technique that helps muscles and reduces the pain of various musculoskeletal conditions. There's also a school of pseudoscience out there, calling what they do myofascial release and claiming that it can cure all sorts of physical an emotional conditions. This isn't real myofascial release.

Re: myofascial release therapy

Hi,
to answer your question about myofascial release. My understanding is that the fascia surrounds all muscles, tendons, ligaments, etc. In our bodies. Due to overuse, trauma, aging, etc., this fascia tightens around various body connective body parts and it is similar to stepping on a hose when you want to water the garden. The hose or our body parts become blocked and unable to move freely as intended. Myofascial removes this blockage so that the body can function as intended so it can now heal. When there is blockage our bodies cannot heal, therefore conventional p/t worsened my pain, discomfort and swelling, while myofascial release therapy helps to reduce it. My severe positional vertigo and incontinence have been cured with this method and the fibromalagia muscle knots are now being worked on and released. It all makes sense to me and it has done wonders for me. Best of luck to all of you out there who have tried it and to others who will try this marvelous technique.
