    Good morning,Myofascial release can really help a lot but it can also make you feel much worse if the therapist uses too much pressure. I had mixed experiences. the most important thing I learned is NOT to let the therapist cause any pain during the treatment. a very light touch works much better. I usually feel so much better after this massage because it is a pampering experience and releases a lot a tension and pain. unfortunately the cost is high and my insurance dose not cover it. Hope you have a great day. Gabuschka

    Gabuschka,

    I am actually using a chiropractor for my myofascial release. I felt great directly following this treatment but by the evening I began to experience cervical and lumbar spine pain- severe. It was very expensive even with insurance. I have 4 more sessions set up so far and it is really going to break the bank but if it works I will not care so much about the cost. Just praying for a miracle as I know we all are. So very tired of being in pain. It makes me very negative as much as I try to be positive and not get depressed I fail miserably too often.

    a ray of hope and then disappointment! wish this had gone better for you but also glad you at least had some relief even just for a little while I am sorry you felt so much pain later on after the treatment. does your chiropractor know what a financial burden this is for you? Perhaps you can work out payment plans to better accommodate your situation? I think sometimes the body gets so stuck in the pain memory and it takes a lot to get out of it.I picture it like reprogramming a program in a computer. It takes time, patience, expertise...you know! Hang in there and follow your gut feelings. If you do not get better from this, try something else. Just don't give up! OK? I really hope the subsequent treatments will be more successfully or that something else will ome along soon to help you feel better. good night. sleep tight. gabuschka
