Myofascial Release

CoMyofascial release is a type of massage therapy designed to release tension at specific deep tissue trigger points. This process can relieve pain, among other benefits. At Alluvium Chiropractic, our father and son chiropractic experts, Dr. William B. Nicoletto and Dr. Will B. Nicoletto III, have been helping the people of Voorhees, NJ, improve their health for a combined nearly four decades.

What is myofascial release?

The term myofascial refers to the body's connective tissue. When we're very stressed or excessive strain is put on the body, muscles and connective tissues can become tense. Myofascial release involves targeted massage to relieve tension and knots in these tissues. It's generally done over a large area of the body, such as the back, since it's difficult to identify which specific tension point is responsible for the pain the patient is experiencing.

Who may benefit from a myofascial release massage?

Many different types of people can experience positive benefits from myofascial release therapy. Even the average healthy person sometimes experiences fascial tension. Patients with myofascial pain syndrome specifically benefit from this type of treatment. Also, patients with headaches and venous insufficiency can usually experience a reduction in symptoms. If you're unsure whether myofascial release is right for your unique situation, Dr. Will or Dr. Nicoletto would be happy to discuss it with you at an initial consultation.

What to Expect from Myofascial Release Therapy

During your first appointment at Alluvium Chiropractic in Voorhees, NJ, you'll sit down with one of our doctors to discuss the treatment, your situation, and your goals. If everything is aligned, treatment will proceed much like a normal massage. You'll lay down on the treatment table, and the provider will begin applying pressure to the necessary points. You may experience slight pain, but nothing major. The process generally lasts 15-20 minutes, and then you will be free to return to regular life feeling refreshed and relaxed!
