Myofascial release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves the therapist applying gentle, sustained pressure into the restrictions of the myofascial (muscle-fascia) connective tissue to eliminate pain and restore function.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain-sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests. (x-rays, MRIs, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc)
Autonomic Nervous System Rebalancing
Treatment that assists the body in regulating bodily functions that do not require conscious thought.
The study of the body’s responses to physical activity. The responses include changes in metabolism, and physiology of different areas of the body like the heart, lungs, and muscles, as well as, structural changes in cells
The science of movement of a living body, including how muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments work together to produce movement. Biomechanics is part of the larger field of kinesiology, specifically focusing on the mechanics of movement.
Myofascial Therapy Treatment Approach
The main goal of EW Myofascial Therapies is to provide the best possible care. Patients receive 50 minutes of treatment emphasizing hands-on techniques. Time is spent on treatment that you cannot reproduce yourself. Exercises or stretches that can be done at home are not performed during individual sessions. Instead, instruction on how to perform them is provided and it is then your responsibility to complete them at home.
In summary, EW Myofascial Therapies stresses the importance of consistency of care, having the same therapist, 50 minute long therapy sessions, manual therapy treatments, and home exercise programs that work.
Myofascial Therapy Philosophy of Treatment
Flat-rate billing is simple. There are no hidden charges and those charges never change based on the interventions used. Seeing only one patient per session for the entire period of time leads to faster recovery with fewer necessary visits.
No more run-of-the-mill, on the clock therapists who are with you for fifteen minutes, then pass you on to an aide with a cookie cutter program that does not progress you toward your goals. Your time is important and receiving the best quality care will get you back to work sooner and back to enjoying the things you like to do.
