Myofascial Release Physical Therapy differs from other types of physical therapy in a number of ways. In a regular physical therapy session, you will have to undergo a number of movements and stretches in order to “rehab” your muscles, tendons and ligaments. The stretches involved in a Myofascial Release Physical Therapy session are held longer, and target the fascia – the root of your pain.
Usually, after a standard physical therapy session, your pain will go away for only a short period of time. This is due to the fact that while parts of your body were targeted, they were not the true cause of the problem. Myofascial Release Physical Therapy targets your whole body, focusing on the problem areas and releasing your bound-up fascia in order to remedy the pain for a longer period of time, not just a few days. This whole-body targeting is the reason why Myofascial Release Physical Therapy is often called “bodywork.”
Grace Pain Solutions prides itself on offering a healing, nurturing, and above all else, welcoming environment. Our staff consists of a number of highly trained physical therapists who have plenty of experience in healing all types of pain.
We tailor each Myofascial Release Physical Therapy session directly to you, the patient, in order to ensure that you receive the treatment that you need in order to be pain free. Each session is one-on-one, and tends to last around one hour. There are no standard protocols, since your pain can change on a daily basis. Therefore, each time you come in for Myofascial Release Physical Therapy, your therapy session may be different.
On top of this, we make it our goal to educate you about your body. This makes it easier for you to understand the causes of your pain and the best possible methods to prevent it from reoccurring. You become a major part of your own pain relief treatment.
