Who Needs Estero Chiropractic Treatment for Myofascial Pain?

Chiropractic Treatment for Myofascial Pain Syndrome in Estero

While there is no known cure for myofascial pain syndrome, treatments are available to help patients manage the symptoms and improve their overall health. MPS is characterized by pain and tightness in the fascia, the thin connective tissues surrounding muscles, and keeping them in place. This condition results from repetitive stress or acute injuries, although some of our patients report no known cause.

While MPS can affect any area of the body, some areas are more commonly affected. Patients report trigger points of pain in their upper back, shoulders, and neck muscles. The face, upper arms, lower back, and hips are also common spots where patients report pain and tenderness.

Symptoms, including pain, often come and go. Some days are worse than others. This makes managing this condition complex. Symptoms could include:

  • An ongoing, chronic sense of fatigue
  • Insomnia caused by pain too intense to sleep
  • Deep, aching muscle pain
  • A general sense of not feeling well

Our practitioners understand how to diagnose and treat this condition. We often prescribe myofascial release massage, chiropractic adjustments, and other services as a part of a patient’s individualized Estero MFR therapy.

Prescribed Services for Estero Myofascial Release Chiropractic Treatment

Our chiropractors and therapists address MPS symptoms through a process known as myofascial release. This type of therapy uses various techniques to identify and release areas where the fascia feels stiff, known as trigger points.

Other services we may recommend as a part of your myofascial release chiropractic plan include:

Spinal Manipulation

Spinal manipulation, also known as chiropractic adjustments, could help reduce pain and increase mobility for those who experience myofascial pain syndrome in their neck, back, or spine.

Complementary Therapies

Our team offers a variety of complementary therapies that could help you manage your pain and tenderness without using painkillers or other medications. Examples include:

  • Massage therapy
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Electrical muscle stimulation (E-STIM) therapy
  • Infrared light therapy

Myofascial Release Scraping

Myofascial release scraping is a form of massage that targets stiff, tense muscles. It helps to relax the fascia and reduce pain.

Reflex Therapy

Reflex therapy reduces pain and promotes mobility by using pressure points in other body parts. Typically, a therapist massages the pressure points in the feet or hands to alleviate symptoms and promote healing throughout the body.

Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation

We believe reducing pain levels and helping patients regain some range of motion and mobility is not enough. We want our patients to leave our care stronger and more able to participate in the activities they want to do. Our personalized treatment plans include physical therapy to rebuild muscle, increase range of motion, and improve overall health. This is crucial to prevent future injuries.

Ongoing Support

Many of our patients go home with a personalized plan to continue to improve their health. This could include exercises to build strength and flexibility, a sleep hygiene plan, or ideas for a healthy diet. Patients treated for MPS often benefit from regular stretching, resistance training, and posture-promoting poses even once they complete our treatment.
