A Chiropractor in Vancouver WA Explains Myofascial Pain

If you are suffering from pain due to soft tissue restriction, myofascial therapy might help you achieve some relief. If you have recently been diagnosed with myofascial pain or lower back pain, knowing the causes might help you avoid it in the future. Some causes of chronic myofascial pain are easy to diagnose, while others are a bit more tricky. It can be a result of a car accident or fall, cumulative posture misalignment, mechanical deficits, a compressed nerve, or a variety of other inflammatory conditions.

Within your body there is a fascia system, which is a web of connective tissue spreading throughout the body. It surrounds each muscle, bone, organ, nerve and blood vessel. If your pain is caused by myofascial tightness that is occurring within this system, the diagnosis might be difficult. This is due to the fact that the fascia restrictions do not show up on X-rays or MRI scans. Those restrictions can sometimes play a major role in creating pain within the structure of the spine, organs, and extremities.  Click here to read more about myofascial pain syndrome.
