Myofascial pain syndrome involves a painful condition affecting the tissue that connects the muscles and supports them inside the body. While muscles are linked to the bones via tendons and ligaments, it’s the myofascial tissue that connects muscles with the rest of the body as well. When this area starts to become extremely sensitive, it can result in a burning or painful sensation that occurs again and again. Patients regularly describe chronic discomfort and often can’t find viable solutions with regular medicine, simply being told the problem can’t be easily identified or that they have to learn “pain management.” However, myofascial release treatment offers an alternative approach. This solution helps through chiropractic treatment the body adjusts to sensory impact to the myofascial tissue, and that can reduce the pain sensations patients often suffer from. Gulfshore Chiropractic Clinic provides an ongoing myofascial release program that clients can schedule appointments for. Call today to find out more!

What is Trigger Point Therapy?

A trigger point, in chiropractic terms, involves a location in the muscles that translates into pain, but often causes the pain sensation elsewhere in the body. For example, one could have a trigger point lower in the back, but the real pain is felt far higher in the neck. And that, of course, can translate to a corresponding tension headache felt from the back of the head forward. With a trigger point therapy approach, a patient goes through a regimen of release and pressure application. The patient is involved, letting the expert know what is being felt and where. As the pain subsides, the chiropractor is taking note what else is responding, localizing and eventually identifying the real trigger point culprit of the pain. The staff at Gulfshore Chiropractic Clinic have been working with trigger point therapy for years, providing patients a better understanding of how their body works and how to alleviate pain proactively versus just managing it.
