Pain Conditions

Types Of Pain Conditions

 

Here are just some of the pain conditions we’ve successfully treated with myofascial release. Each link to a pain condition gives general information about the condition and medical treatment, and offers a myofascial explanation and myofascial treatment options.

Not all healthcare professionals use the same terminology for certain conditions. However, we try not to confuse by using unfamiliar scientific words for common conditions.

If you have any questions about myofascial release for your own pain condition or injury please contact us in confidence.
