Benefits of Myofascial Release
Myofascial release technique blends gentle stretching and massage in order to release the restrictions present in connective tissue surrounding organs and muscles in the body. This therapy is also beneficial in relieving the restricted movement as a result of constricted fascia because of injury.
1. Reduces pain
Pain causes both emotional and physical stresses to the body. In some instances, the pain patterns develop and thus a person feels as if the pain has reached all parts of the body. Myofascial release not only works on painful parts, but it also addresses other dysfunctional areas throughout a person’s body. It works through enabling the nerve receptors, lymph and blood to work efficiently. Furthermore it enhances the secretion of endorphins and thus eliminates the requirement of other prescription drugs.
2. Enhances blood circulation
Myofascial release enhances blood flow and enables nutrients to reach the desired tissues, while making sure that metabolic wastes are removed. In fact, most circulatory conditions could possibly be alleviated or helped through releasing the fascia responsible for preventing optimal function of the body.
3. Boosts nerve function
Key symptoms of nerve pain include tingling, numbness or pain in one’s legs and arms. The cause of these symptoms is basically fascia adhesions that are pressing on the nerves. By using myofascial release, the pressure being placed on nerves is released providing relief to affected areas.
4. Strengthens immune system
One of the most important systems in the body is the immune system as it helps to guard against infections and heal wounds. If the lymphatic flow is affected due to fascia pulls, the immune system’s function is compromised. Myofascial release enhances lymph circulation in the entire body and this accelerates recovery from illnesses and injuries.
Myofascial release has some discomforting side effects that you should be aware of. You are likely going to experience soreness for quite a number of hours after treatment. Usually, improvement is seen after soreness.
