Myofascial Release Therapy

Addressing orthopedic conditions

Myofascial Trigger Point Release is a valuable technique used to alleviate muscle disorders and reduce pain in both human and veterinary patients. This therapy is particularly beneficial for addressing orthopedic conditions like arthritis, and muscle pain from injury, and enhancing athletic performance.

Similar to acupuncture, Myofascial Trigger Point release involves the insertion of a small gauge needle into the identified trigger point. The needle is then pulsed to help relax the muscle before being removed. It's essential to treat all identified trigger points during the same session for effective results.

Trigger points are known to cause pain and reduce proper muscle function, leading to weakness and dysfunction. By addressing these trigger points, muscle function can be restored, and pain alleviated. However, it's common for patients to experience soreness immediately after treatment, similar to post-workout soreness. In veterinary patients, this may manifest as increased tiredness, reluctance to move, or decreased appetite, which is normal and expected.
