Myofascial Pain Syndrome Treatment

Myofascial Release Therapy in San Antonio TX: With Myofascial pain syndrome, pressure on sensitive points in your muscles or trigger points can cause pain in other parts of the body. These would normally seem unrelated but this chronic pain disorder is due to sensitivity and tightness in certain tissues.

Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a specific muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs (and most daily jobs are repetitive), hobbies/sports or by stress-related muscle tension. Dr. Oliver will work with you and help you manage and release the tension that has been building so you can sleep better, feel more relaxed and decrease your pain with regular treatment.

Normal myofascia should feel pliable and elastic and Dr. Oliver will find and target the more rigid areas and the areas that are affected by this tightness and utilize hands-on manipulation to release the tension found in the body. Feel relief now in the hands of an experienced professional at Comprehensive Chiropractic & Osteopathy.

Symptoms of Myofascial Pain Syndrome may include:

  • Deep, aching pain in a muscle
  • Pain that persists or worsens
  • A tender knot in a muscle
  • Difficulty sleeping due to pain
  • Headaches

Myofascial Release Therapy at Comprehensive Chiropractic & Osteopathy in San Antonio

Dr. Oliver treats myofascial pain syndromes such as myofascial trigger points or adhesions with manual myofascial therapy. This therapy normally includes the use of direct pressure upon the trigger point, or the use of active anchor-and-stretch myofascial release techniques.  Stretching and exercise programs along with additional non invasive therapies may be recommended by the doctor in order to increase speed of recovery.

It's not very often I find an awesome doctor and staff to match. Dr. Oliver and staff are absolutely amazing! Dr. Oliver walked me through my scans and described my treatment thoroughly, which made me feel at ease knowing I was in good hands (literally and figuratively). His staff is always so nice and welcoming. You can tell they truly love what they do and are so great to work with. If you need a good chiropractor, look no further.
