Chiropractic Treatment for Myofascial Pain

Chiropractic Treatment for Myofascial Pain

There are many muscles that work to stabilize the spine and promote proper movements of the arms and shoulders. Fascia is the layer of connective tissue that contributes to the supportive structure of the spine and musculoskeletal system. The fascia invests, or surrounds, the muscles and allows for the smooth gliding of one muscle upon another. Overuse or chronic postural stress on the spine can create myofascial adhesions or trigger points.

To treat these adhesions and trigger points of the myofasical:

  • Chiropractors use manual therapy known as myofascial release therapy, which uses direct pressure upon the trigger point, or the use of active anchor-and-stretch myofascial release techniques that will help relieve the tightness in the muscles.
  • In addition to medical treatment, home remedies can be practiced such as light stretching and exercises to maintain flexibility and create blood flow to the affected areas. The use of  heat and cold packs are also beneficial for soothing tight muscles or swollen areas.

Myofascial therapy has other benefits including enhancing the effectiveness of other medical treatments, such as acupuncture, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. Myofascial release therapy can also improve skeletal and muscular alignment prior to a surgery, or help athletes achieve better alignment prior to sports competitions.

By targeting specific areas of the fascial system, myofascial therapy can help prepare patients for more aggressive forms of strengthening, or provide pain relief for patients with restricted flexibility and movement, thus allowing patients to return to normal movement and greater function.
