Myofascial Release and Active Release Therapy
Easthampton Chiropractic offers two solutions for chronic and unrelenting muscle pain and tightness— myofascial release and active release treatments. Patients often come to us when they’re experiencing extreme tightness of the tissues and the resulting restricted motion. Our chiropractic services are for those who are experiencing pain from muscle or nervous system conditions.
Myofascial Release Therapy
Myofascial Release Therapy is a type of safe, low-load stretch that aims to release tightness and pain throughout resulting from myofascial pain syndrome and persistent muscle pain. It is generally caused by extreme tightening of the fascia a tissue that spans the entire body. Our goal with this type of therapy is to stretch and loosen the fascia so that it can move freely, restoring motion to joints and muscles and relieving pain. These sessions are usually a little less than an hour and can be frequent depending on the diagnosis.
Active Release Therapy
Active Release Therapy is a patented, soft tissue-based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Whether you are experiencing headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee pain or shoulder pain, Active Release Therapy sessions may help target and relieve the tension and restore flexibility and health.. Each one of these sessions consists of a medical exam and treatment. Our chiropractors then determine the best way to work with the intent of loosening tight areas.
