What can you tell me about myofascial release therapy as a treatment for back pain? Does it work?

What can you tell me about myofascial release therapy as a treatment for back pain? Does it work?

Myofascial (my-o-FASH-e-ul) release is a manual therapy technique often used in massage: The technique focuses on pain believed to arise from myofascial tissues — the tough membranes that wrap, connect and support your muscles. Theoretically, myofascial pain differs from other types of pain because it originates in "trigger points," which are related to stiff, anchored areas within the myofascial tissue. The pain that a trigger point causes is often difficult to localize, though. During myofascial release therapy, the therapist locates myofascial areas that feel stiff and fixed instead of elastic and movable under light manual pressure. These areas, though not always near what feels like the source of pain, are thought to restrict muscle and joint movements, which contributes to widespread muscle pain. The focused manual pressure and stretching used in myofascial release therapy loosen up restricted movement, leading indirectly to reduced pain. Many studies have found that massage, chiropractic manipulation and similar manual therapies work as well as other treatments for back pain. Few studies, however, have tested myofascial release therapy specifically, partly because the exact elements of myofascial release therapy vary from therapist to therapist. If you've been told that myofascial release therapy may be helpful for your back pain, consult a therapist who has training in the technique. ...Read more

How would oxygen therapy help a patient who is having an asthma attack? What effect will it have on the patient?

Prevention: The respiratory system has an important roll in both providing oxygen to tissues & helping acutely regulate the delicate acid base balance in the body. Bronchospasm reduces the easy transfer of oxygen in & co2 out of the body.Without adequate o2, the body reverts to a metabolism that creates more acid causing deterioration, supplemental o2 helps avoid the acid buildup & nourishes tissues. ...Read more
