LEG AND FOOT PAIN RELIEF MASSAGE THERAPY
Foot pain from plantar fasciitis, gout, diabetic neuropathy or other causes can be helped with myofascial release (Myofascial Release Therapy ) therapy
Myofascial Release Therapy can increase mobility in joints and tissues that are causing the painful symptoms by reducing pressure on the joints, soft tissue and nerves allowing for more pain free movement and a more enjoyable life.
Feet work by muscles too. If the muscles of the foot are healthy and fully developed, you will not have foot pain. MyoFascial Therapy addresses the cause of the pain – the muscle imbalance – and it can make pain stop for good.
Feet are your bottom line – as you walk or exercise all your weight bears down on your feet. It’s only when our feet start to hurt – toe pain, ankle pain, bone spurs, arch pain, plantar fasciitis – that we realize our feet need attention. Injuries, postural habits, and immobility from being constrained in shoes — all these can lead eventually to foot pain. MyoFascial Therapy for foot pain can correct each of these foot problems and stop the pain
There aren’t any muscles in the foot, you think, so how can medical massage help? The big muscles that drive the foot are in the calf – this is where we work to improve foot pain. Massage can end plantar fasciitis, hammer toes, and all kinds of foot pain and shin splints.
Diagnoses – bunions, hammer toes, plantar fasciitis… all describe the body’s response to biomechanical problems in the muscles and connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, and fascia).
MyoFascial Therapy therapy can help with all types of foot pain.
Maybe you have very tight hamstring, quad or calf muscles. Perhaps you feel an electrical, burning or nerve pain. Sciatica is a shooting pain that begins in the lower back, radiates into the buttock and down the back of one leg. The leg pain is often caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve from a herniated disc, bone spurs or muscle strain. This type of leg pain ranges from mild to severe and can be acute or chronic.
Acute sciatic pain occurs suddenly and usually heals within several days to weeks. The severity of the leg pain relates directly to the amount of tissue injury. The source of leg pain may be in the spinal joints, discs, nerves, or muscles and ligaments.
Chronic sciatic pain persists for more than 3 months and its source may be hard to determine. Chronic leg pain may be felt all the time or worsen with certain activities. Contributing factors may include nerve damage, tissue scarring, arthritis, or mental effects of pain.
