Myofascial pain therapy relieves the limitations of soft tissues that cause pain and discomfort to our body. Muscle pain is triggered by a mechanism that is stimulated by nociceptors located in the muscle fibers - causing pain. Myofascial pain is localized trigger point pain or a knot in the muscle. The trigger point is defined as a contracture in the muscle fiber, which is called the sarcomere. In addition, when pain is caused by myofascial compression, it will usually be not only the cause of muscle pressure and trigger points but also the hypertonicity of fascia and limitations.
At Emerson Physical Therapy & Rehab Center, we offer non-surgical options to effectively and safely deal with myofascial pain. We will show you how to become free from pain, correct the cause, and eliminate symptoms.
Emerson Physical Therapy & Rehab Center provides a particular, individualized, and comprehensive approach that determines the exact cause of the pain and treats it as such.
Muscle pain and trigger points affect us all at one time or another. However, people who do not exercise, sit for a long time at work, or do not engage in physical activity, feel more of the effects of muscle trigger points. Typically, patients experience:
Tissue tightnessDull and achySharp painRestricted motion Feeling lack of alignment in joints Excessive pressure on muscles or joints
There are many different causes of myofascial trigger points. This may be due to a functional or structural disorder; for example, muscle spasms, vertebral misalignment, muscle weakness, core instability, arthritis and many other problems that Emerson Physical Therapy & Rehab Center doctors will prove to you during the initial examination. Other reasons include, among others:
