Myofascial Release Therapy at AktivOrtho™

myofascial 1

Myofascial Release (MFR) Therapy is a medical speciality that is used to relieve muscular shortness and tightness. Injuries are unpredictable and cause a variety of damage which can leave people severely affected and in great pain. As a result they suffer not only from pain but also a certain loss of flexibility in the affected area. This can even lead to a loss in productivity and efficiency for the patient. MFR therapy is pivotal in resolving these unpleasant symptoms. It is an effective solution to many pain related issues in various parts of the body plus the loss of functional ability and flexibility following an injury.

Who can benefit?

The benefits of MFR therapy extend to a wide range of orthopaedic, neurological and sports injury problems. Below are some of the conditions that can be treated using MFR:

  • Sciatica
  • Chronic back and neck pain
  • Inflammation
  • Breathing problems
  • Poor body posture
  • Poor flexibility
  • Headaches
  • Traumas
  • Emotional or psychological stress
  • Muscle pain and spasms
  • Numbness, pins and needles

Our Solution

At AktivOrtho™, our physiotherapists use a proven and result-oriented approach to assess and treat patients. The therapist first locates the trigger points in the restricted muscles and fascia.  The therapist will then measure the levels of loss of motion and symmetry in the body. Furthermore, upon identifying those trigger points, emphasis is laid on releasing the tight knots with manual pressure resulting in relaxation and increased flexibility of the soft tissues.

Our Programme

The main features of our program include:

A):        Hands-on treatment in one of our private therapy rooms.

B):        Comprehensive and detailed patient assessment – this leads to …

C): Personalised patient treatment plan. Once started this plan needs effective follow-up and monitoring conducted in a medically-supervised environment.

MFR therapy releases the restrictions from various parts of your body with varying degree of effectiveness. Progress is measured by the level of improvements in physical abilities and reduction in pain.

  • Significant reduction in pain
  • Improved joint mobility
  • Improved breathing
