Specialists in myofascial release therapy techniques, the licensed practitioners at Mission Chiropractic can restore physical functioning and relieve chronic pain and muscle soreness with noninvasive and effective chiropractic care treatment plans customized for your specific needs and condition.
What Conditions Can Be Treated With Myofascial Release Therapy?
Fascia is the connective tissue that literally holds your body together. Strong and flexible while healthy, fascia can become problematic when traumatized, pulled or injured, similar to a fiber of thread on clothing that bunches up when pulled. Myofascial release therapy works effectively to undo muscle contractions that have developed into chronic disorders and discomfort without the use of potential harmful drugs or painful injections. Whether a chronic pain issue is rooted in physical trauma or injury, or can be traced to a psychological condition such as depression, our Mission Chiropractic practitioners in San Jose provide personalized assessments and detailed evaluations to determine whether myofascial release therapy is right for you.

How Does Myofascial Release Therapy Work?
Our body is programmed to protect us and reacts to physical pain in a variety of ways. Chronic pain induces the body to transmit signals to the spinal cord which in turn, activates muscle contractions that may eventually cause adverse effects in the surrounding tissue. Over time muscle tightness reduces blood flow and impedes flexibility which can lead to muscle and tissue damage. If left unaddressed, related conditions can develop into problems with the fascial tissue that surround the muscles. Fascial imbalances can cause a range of physical issues that include soreness, chronic pain, poor circulation and limited range of motion. Qualified Mission Chiropractic practitioners offer myofascial release therapy treatments and techniques that steadily work through muscle tightness and muscle knots to restore surrounding fascia to its normal state.
Relief from Chronic Pain at Our San Jose Chiropractic Care Clinic
Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy that is carried out without the use of lubricants, creams, oils or any type of machinery. The certified myofascial release practitioners at Mission Chiropractic apply gentle sustained pressure to muscle adhesions that allow the connective tissues to become more flexible thereby relieving pain and restoring range of motion. Our advanced San Jose facility is fully equipped with massage therapy tools such as rollers and balls that are expertly applied to work through the muscle and tissue imbalances and relieve pain. Many patients report feeling release and relief almost immediately following a myofascial release therapy treatment and enjoy improved range of movement with only a limited amount of treatments.
