Myofascial pain in trigger points may sometimes become unbearable. If neglected it spreads to other parts of the body. Myofascial Release involves applications of mild to moderate pressure to remove pain and reinstate normal motion. The goal of myofascial release helps to stretch and loosen the fascia so that the body can move more freely, and the motion is restored.

Myofascial Release helps to reduce tension throughout your body by releasing trigger points across a broad section of your muscular system.

How Core Fitness Physiotherapy & Pilates Can Help

Our skilled Physiotherapist will assess your condition and start by gently massaging the myofascia and feel for stiff or tightened areas. The therapist then aids the tissue by releasing pressure and tightness on the triggered points. This process is then repeated multiple times on the same trigger point and on other trigger points until the therapist feels the tension is fully released. We will develop a care plan suited to your needs and health. As the tension is being reduced, the pain is relieved in both upper and lower portions of the body.
