Myofascial Technique in Buffalo

What is Myofascial Technique?

Myofascial technique is a type of soft tissue massage therapy that focuses on relieving the pain from your myofascial tissues. These are the specific tissues that extend throughout your entire body and provide support and protection to bones and muscles. Your physical therapist can find the spots where this connective tissue is not as mobile under light pressure, called trigger points. These points are stiff and anchored within the tissue. The physical therapist focuses light pressure and stretching to help loosen up the restricted movement, which usually leads to reduced pain.

Benefits of Myofascial Technique

Some of the benefits of myofascial technique include:

  • Releasing “knots” or points of tension
  • Improving function
  • Improving flexibility
  • Enhancing circulation

If myofascial therapy was recommended for you, the doctors here at BC + PT are able to walk you through each step, and what you can expect from the treatment.

Percussive Massage in Buffalo

What is Percussive Massage therapy?

Percussive massage therapy is the application of a massage gun to applicable areas. Using a percussive massage machine, physical therapists apply rapid repetitive pressure on specific points of the body. Percussive massage is able to work deeper into the muscle than vibration therapy. There has even been research published by the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research that has found percussive therapy to be as effective as massage therapy in preventing onset muscle soreness. It's a treatment that has been utilized by athletes both professional and recreational alike, and when in the hands of a professional such as the doctors here at BC + PT can be beneficial to patients who have pain in their soft tissue.
