Myofascial & Massage Therapy in Beaverton
At Unity Chiropractic and Wellness Center, our Beaverton massage therapist, Jim Freda and chiropractor, Dr. Kathy Cantwell, provide natural treatments including myofascial therapy. If you suffer from pain, myofascial therapy can help relieve symptoms naturally while restoring flexibility and range of motion in affected muscles.
What is Myofascial Therapy?
Myofascial therapy is a name for structural bodywork treatments that relieve pain and inflammation in the body. Myofascial treatments focus on the fascia, or the soft connective tissues between muscle and joints. Over time, the fascia between your muscles can become over-stretched and tight, and you feel pain as a result.
This may occur due to overuse, injury, poor posture, or an imbalance in the body. Myofascial pain can mimic the pain of many other medical conditions including chest pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, migraine headaches.
Whatever the cause of your pain, structural bodywork treatments can work tension out of the body so you feel better. By releasing tension trapped in muscles and fascias, our team can bring down inflammation and initiate pain relief. Bu scheduling an appointment for regular myofascial or massage therapy with Jim Freda, you can slowly regain flexibility and range of motion you have lost due to muscle and fascia adhesions. You will be amazed at how light you feel!
Myofascial Treatments We Offer
At Unity Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we offer a number of different types of myofascial therapies. Myofascial therapy can improve the circulation, reduce muscle tension caused by stress, relieve soft tissue pain and promote more rapid healing.
Jim Freda employs deep tissue massage, structural bodywork, sports massage, and neuromuscular approaches to relieve pain, correct dysfunction, and improve mobility for his clients.
Deep tissue massage, popularized by Jim Freda, breaks apart deep muscle adhesions to work out chronic pain trapped deep in your body.
Sports massage is a rehabilitative treatment, ideal for athletes who want to initiate muscle recovery after a sporting event.
Myofascial release treatments focus on the connective fascia through a pattern of stretching and releasing. In a myofascial treatment, Jim may use his hands, small medicine balls, or foam rollers to dig into trigger points and release tension. Jim relies on your input to manage discomfort and tension in the body, helping you finally find relief from pain.
Our team will work together to evaluate the symptoms and signs of injury, and then determine the right treatment method for you. We may use both massage and myofascial release to encourage healing.
As we release tension in the body, our Beaverton chiropractor, Dr. Kathy Cantwell will be able to reposition the spine and ligaments so your body can move through its full range of motion without experiencing pain or limitation.
The side effect of this work is a fully functioning nervous system with the capability to perform its own pain relief. Thus, every treatment we provide helps your body take better care of itself.
