At Performance Health, we can help treat your chronic pain that results from neuropathic, muscular, and skeletal health issues. Often needed after surgery or when a patient suffers from arthritis, physical therapy is a non-invasive, conservative treatment option to help restore your pain-free life and improve your range of motion. Myofascial Release Myofascial release is a specific type of sports physical therapy, which focuses on treating myofascial pain. This type of pain is chronic and affects the tissues that surround the muscles in your body. Often, patients experience pain that seems to be caused by certain “trigger points” throughout the body. During myofascial release therapy, a patient’s physical therapist will apply pressure to these tissues to loosen the tissue and reduce tension.
