    Myofascial Pain

    Fascia is the network of connective soft tissue that runs throughout the body. Due to its nature, fascia can  sustain various types of damage such as tears and restrictions from impact or overuse.

    Please see myofascial release for a fuller explanation of fascia.

    Myofascial pain is a collective term given to the common pain symptoms resulting from damage to the fascia.  These symptoms may include chronic pain, especially at night, sharp and shooting nerve pains, inflammation, burning pain, tingling, numbness, pins and needles and a general loss of function, eg inability to pick up a coffee cup or pen.

    Myofascial pain syndrome is often associated with carpal tunnel syndrome and RSI type conditions affecting the wrists, arms, neck and shoulders.

    Myofascial release is a gentle, non-invasive complementary therapy specifically designed to work on the soft tissues of the body. Myofascial release sessions vary in intensity and will always be dictated by how the client feels at the time of treatment.

    Please see case studies and testimonials.

    The Pain Care Clinic specialises in myofascial release and advanced massage therapy for private clients with medical diagnoses of chronic pain conditions and acute pain or injuries.
