We are providing myofascial release therapy at nhhci

                 Myofascial pain syndrome is caused by injury or damage to the fascia. The syndrome can cause chronic pain in muscles throughout the body. We are able to fix it in the National Holistic Health Care India (nhhci)

                 

Myofascial Therapy for the Treatment of Acute and Chronic Pain

 

                 Myofascial therapy is a low-load stretch that is designed to relieve pain by releasing tightness within the fascia, the web of connective tissue that spreads throughout the body and surrounds muscles, bones, and organs.

                 Myofascial therapy relieves soft tissue restrictions that cause pain. Some causes of chronic myofascial pain or low back pain are easier to diagnose than others: trauma (such as a car accident or fall), cumulative posture misalignment or mechanical deficits, a compressed nerve from a herniated disc, or inflammatory conditions.

                When pain is caused by myofascial tightness within the fascial system (the web of connective tissue that spreads throughout the body and surrounds every muscle, bone, nerve blood vessel, and organ to the cellular level) the diagnosis is more difficult, as fascia restrictions do not show up on MRI scans or X-rays. Yet, those restrictions can play a significant role in creating pain and malfunction in the structure of the spine, extremities, and organs. Reflexology and Chiropractic Therapy also helps in such a problem.

​What is Myofascial Therapy?

Myofascial Therapy (also known as myofascial release therapy or myofascial trigger point therapy) is a type of safe, low-load stretch that releases tightness and pain throughout the body caused by myofascial pain syndrome, which describes chronic muscle pain that is worse in certain areas known as trigger points.

Pain due to fascia Let me explain, how this is possible.

Fascia is internal connective tissue that wraps around organs, providing support and holding parts together. It has the appearance of a very thin spider web, connecting layers of muscle and surrounding all internal body tissues.

You see, when you and I were ‘young’ men, our body’s fascia was elastic, like a rubber band. 

 

Now if you’re not familiar with fascia, it’s a sheet of tissue made up of protein fibers within your body that keeps your bones, organs and muscles together.

Think of it as a fabric ‘body suit’ under your skin that holds your insides together in the right place.

Anyway, as life goes on, physical injuries, emotional stress and lack of activity starts to take its toll on your body’s fascia, resulting in it shirking and thickening, without you even knowing that is happening.

 

This is a BIG deal because even a slight fascia restriction can produce a whopping 2,000-lbs per square inch pain (that’s double the power of a heavy weight boxer’s punch!) in your body that won’t even show up on an X-Ray or CT scan – which makes it almost impossible to diagnose. 

Now listen… because this is where it gets interesting.

Since your fascia starts to distort naturally with age – and anytime you are hit with more STRESS, physical or mental – your fascia starts to tighten up even more, creating pain and stiffness in parts of your body that may never have actually been injured.

Some of the most common aches and pains not associated with a direct injury to the muscle and that are related to tight fascia are…

  • Headaches

  • Muscle pain, tension and stiffness

  • Chronic back and neck pain

  • Recurring injuries

  • Sciatica

  • Breathing difficulties

  • Sensations like numbness and pins and needles

  • Poor Posture and reduced flexibility

This explains why some days you wake up and feel achy 

and sore and you don’t know why. This also explains 

why ‘traditional’ methods like trying to treat an isolated 

muscle or muscle group don’t work.
