Myofascial Pain Treatment
Myofascial Treatment in Hawthorne NJ: With Myofascial pain syndrome, pressure on sensitive points in your muscles or trigger points can cause pain in other parts of the body. These would normally seem unrelated but this chronic pain disorder is due to sensitivity and tightness in certain tissues.
Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a specific muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs (and most daily jobs are repetitive), hobbies/sports or by stress-related muscle tension. Dr. Fontanarosa will work with you and help you manage and release the tension that has been building so you can sleep better, feel more relaxed and decrease your pain with regular treatment.
Normal myofascia should feel pliable and elastic and Dr. Fontanarosa will find and target the more rigid areas and the areas that are affected by this tightness and utilize hands-on manipulation to release the tension found in the body. Feel relief now in the hands of an experienced professional at Fontanarosa Chiropractic Wellness Center.
Symptoms of Myofascial Pain Syndrome may include:
- Deep, aching pain in a muscle
- Pain that persists or worsens
- A tender knot in a muscle
- Difficulty sleeping due to pain
