Preventing Injuries From Occurring During Myofascial Release

The most important objective of this study was to compare the effects of an isokinetic contraction with the use of myofascial release. A special aspect of this research is that there were no controls for muscle action during the contraction or at rest. Although, there have been multiple methods used to induce pain, only isokinetic contraction was effective for this particular disorder. The principal outcome was a rapid reduction in pain following the procedure.

Techniques and Materials: 53 participants were involved in the research and have been assigned to two classes; Myofascial Release (cryo-stretching, deep transverse pressure) and static stretch, isokinetic contraction. Pain was induced using VAS, selective nerve block, electrical current and static pressure on the sore muscle cells. Pre and post-operative measurements were made with all the above clinical parameters to find out the effect of these processes. A combined model was created to evaluate the impact of isokinetic contraction and inactive static stretching on pain. This model had high precision for detecting statistically distinct changes from pre-to postoperative and during the whole period of the treatment.

Consistent differences were found in terms of pain reduction at the end of the treatment period. Within the final analysis, there were significant changes in mean time to surgery (p =.032), number of patients treated for recurrence of skeletal muscle pain at the end of the procedure (p =.033) and mean number of treated inter-stitial lesions. There was also a trend for improvement in the inflammatory infiltrate (VASd) throughout the treatment period (p =.039). These results demonstrate that myofascial release massage can be used to reduce pain from both acute and chronic conditions and to improve the inflammatory response after surgery.

Myofascial Release Massage Therapy has been shown to increase range of movement and reduce tightness in the muscles. Patients with medial epicondylitis and/or bursitis reveal greater range of motion, which decreases their level of pain. Myofascial Release Massage Therapy increases flexibility and range of motion, which prevents further injury and enhances knee stability. The technique also can help decrease tightness in muscles and stiffness in tendons and ligaments. Myofascial Release Massage Therapy has been proven to improve performance and decrease pain in sports like golfing, tennis, football and football.

In some studies, the release of adhesion substances by the semitendinosus muscle has been shown to reduce pain in patients with plantar fasciitis. This study was performed on cadavers and found that the protein build-up in the calf muscle, called semitendinosus, causes adhesion in the plantar fascia, increasing its stress, strain and length. By massaging the calf muscle with a tennis ball during Myofascial Release Massage Therapy, or when using the treatment on humans, deep tissue massage can increase the pressure on the adhesion site and decrease pain. Other studies have shown improved function, increased range of motion and reduced stiffness and pain by stimulating the release of adhesion molecules.

When patients undergo deep tissue massage therapy, special care is taken to ensure that the Myofascial Trigger Points is targeted in order to increase healing and effect. Research has shown that when Myofascial Trigger Points is correctly targeted during Myofascial Release Massage Therapy, the benefits of the therapy are greater than with the treatment administered alone. A good example of how targeted muscles can be affected during a Myofascial Release Massage Treatment is during the recovery process following an injury to the lower trapezius muscle, which is responsible for rotating the head forward.
