Myofascial Therapy


Ed Montgomery - Myofascial Therapy at Massotherapy and Wellness

The goal of myofascial therapy is to stretch and loosen the fascia so that it and other contiguous structures can move more freely, and the patient's motion is restored. For this reason, myofascial therapy is sometimes referred to as 'myofascial release' therapy. It may also be referred to as 'myofascial trigger point therapy' by others.

Myofascial release (MFR) therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness.

Pain can be generated from the skeletal muscle or connective tissues that are 'bound down' by tight fascia.

In addition, pain can also be generated from damaged myofascial tissue itself, sometimes at a 'trigger point' where a contraction of muscle fibers has occurred. In either case, the restriction or contraction inhibits blood flow to the affected structures, thus accentuating the contraction process further unless the area is treated.

By targeting specific areas of the fascial system, myofascial therapy can help prepare patients for more aggressive forms of strengthening, or provide pain relief for patients with restricted flexibility and movement, thus allowing patients to return to normal movement and greater function.

I’m also a Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) provider, which means that I’m legally permitted to work on injured workers in conjunction with chiropractors and other medical professionals to help facilitate rehabilitation with massotherapy.  I am able to work on clients and bill BWC for services rendered.

Like I said, this isn’t your typical relaxation or spa massage.  You may need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable-but you will see results.  I have direct experience with pain and a lack of function due to many low back disc herniations that I have suffered from during many years working my way up from laborer to cement finisher.  I lived and worked with pain for many years without any relief.   So I understand what happens to the body and have firsthand experience with repetitive strain injuries.  I have sustained injuries both from work and from working out/training.  I haven’t just gone to school or read a book to learn about these things; I’ve experienced the pain and trauma first hand.  I had to work through rehab after back surgery and have continued to push and strengthen myself physically and spiritually.  I am always seeking to obtain more knowledge about myself.  My focus is to relieve or reduce your pain to make you more functional, because let’s face it-it’s not likely that you’re going to stop working or slow down.  It’s my job to keep you operational. 

I have a diverse background that my help you in your journey.  To quote a colleague, “I stay hungry”, and I’m not much for staying in comfort zones; nobody that is really doing anything does.  And nothing really ever grows in the comfort zone anyway. From an Eagle Scout to excelling in the army, to a construction worker and business owner, to a martial artist and teacher, I am constantly on a pursuit for knowledge and for new ways to challenge myself.  I took a risk to go back to school and completely change career paths later in life, and I haven’t looked back since.
