How does myofascial therapy help with sports injuries or muscle overuse?

Myofascial release is a manual type of therapy used to relieve stiff areas surrounding muscle tissue. These areas should normally feel elastic. When muscles are overused or injured during exercise, though, this sports medicine technique can be beneficial. During your visit, Dr. Ponomarenko will manually stretch the area and use pressure to loosen up any tightness in the membranes that surround your muscles. In some cases, the stiff areas he needs to work on aren’t near the area where you feel the pain. Dr. Ponomarenko has used myofascial therapy to help countless athletes recover from sports and exercise pain.

Is vibration therapy beneficial for pain related to exercise and injuries?

Yes. Depending on the extent of your injury or pain level, Dr. Ponomarenko might recommend undergoing vibration therapy. Your skeleton thrives on being used -- the phrase “use it or lose it,” directly describes the bones that make up your skeleton. As the name implies, this technique uses either high-intensity or low-intensity vibrations to improve bone strength. The vibrations have shown that they increase bone formation while decreasing bone resorption, which causes your bones to lose essential minerals. Not only will vibration therapy help you build and retain muscle strength, it can also speed up the healing process.
