Myofascial Release – The Ultimate Pain Reliever

Myofascial Release Workshop | Yoga Therapy Balls

A majority of your body weight is made up of muscles (36-42%)! These muscles are essential for you to perform daily activities with ease. However, these muscles can develop trigger points. These can be caused by a sedentary lifestyle, repetitive movements, bad posture, direct injuries/trauma, postural imbalance (e.g. unequal leg length), lack of sleep, and even vitamin deficiencies. Hence, these sensitive trigger points result in pain, tension and loss of normal function.

When compressed, trigger points are painful and can radiate pain and tenderness into another area, as well as restrict the movement of the affected muscle. Most of the time trigger points occur in muscles used to maintain posture. Especially, muscles in the neck, back, shoulders, and pelvic girdle. Depending on the area, trigger points results in headaches, joint pain, eye tension, decreased motion in legs, and low back pain.

How Myofascial Release Works

Various methods can be used to release these trigger points. Using tools (foam roller, therapy balls) the tissue is stretched at a long, slow, and moderate manner to restore its optimal length, decrease pain, and improve overall function. Myofascial release focuses on gentle pressure and stretching of the area.

How Myofascial Release Helps

Our muscles hold a lot of secrets to our health. As such when you Fascia is traumatized, it is in a constant, exhaustive game of 3-dimensional Tug of War. When traumatized it often results in pain, dysfunction, and an inability to participate in the activities which give meaning to our lives.

Here are some conditions that Myofascial Release can alleviate!

  • Neck Sprain/Strain: Strains are caused by damage to the muscle or the tendons. While sprains are caused by tearing of ligaments.
  • Back Pain: The leading cause of disability worldwide and a common cause for visiting the doctors. (Eg. Lumbar Sprain/strain)
  • Knee Pain: Knee conditions can be caused by a sudden injury, overuse injury, or by an underlying condition. (Eg. Arthritis, Joint Pain, Patellofemoral Disorders.)
  • Achilles Tendinosis: Overuse injury of the Achilles tendon, the band of tissues that connect the calf muscle at the back of the lower leg to the heel bone!
  • Frozen Shoulder: Characterised by stiffness and pain in your shoulder joints.
  • Carpal Tunnel: Numbness and tingling in the hands and arms. It can be caused by a compressed nerve in the narrow passageway on the palm side of the wrist.
  • Sciatica: Pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through the hips, buttocks and down to each leg.
  • Plantar Fasciitis: Inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes.
  • Fibromyalgia: A rheumatic condition characterized by generalized pain, joint rigidity, intense fatigue, sleep alterations, headache, spastic colon, craniomandibular dysfunction, anxiety, and depression.
