Fascia a continuous, connective tissue covers, separates and organizes your muscles, bones and joints. Because fascia is body-wide, tension, injury, surgical incisions and repetitive movements in one part of your body can and most often does affect another part.
Over time, strain patterns are written into the myofascial fabric, causing your fascia to shrink, or become hardened and sticky. Some of these strain patterns are minor; but some, either immediately or over time, produce chronic or acute myofascial pain patterns and introduce significant limitations as well as dymession.
These myofascial pain patterns may begin in one locale, or may regularly produce pain in one spot, like the shoulder, knee or low back. However, the strain pattern because of the distributive nature of fascia is always body-wide.
At St. Louis Institute for Rehabilitative and Sports Massage, our therapists can provide treatment to individuals suffering from chronic or acute myofascial pain. For example:
Individuals preparing for, or recovering from, an operation can improve their recovery and healing avoiding long-term side effects.
Our therapists can unlock the limitations of chronic tensions, habits and injuries particularly those created by repetitive movement in a job or activity.
Individuals with specific conditions such as whiplash, plantar fascitis, low back pain, frozen shoulder, fibromyalgia, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines/headaches, cerebral palsy, myofascial pain can reduce or eliminate the restrictions that are at the root of their ailment.
Our therapists can use a combination of modalities to increase blood (venous) and lymphatic flow, improving neurological or circulation conditions.
