Myofascial Release in San Antonio, TX
Myofascial Pain Syndrome Treatment
Myofascial Release Therapy in San Antonio TX: With Myofascial pain syndrome, pressure on sensitive points in your muscles or trigger points can cause pain in other parts of the body. These would normally seem unrelated but this chronic pain disorder is due to sensitivity and tightness in certain tissues.
Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a specific muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs (and most daily jobs are repetitive), hobbies/sports or by stress-related muscle tension. Dr. Oliver will work with you and help you manage and release the tension that has been building so you can sleep better, feel more relaxed and decrease your pain with regular treatment.
Normal myofascia should feel pliable and elastic and Dr. Oliver will find and target the more rigid areas and the areas that are affected by this tightness and utilize hands-on manipulation to release the tension found in the body. Feel relief now in the hands of an experienced professional at Comprehensive Chiropractic & Physical Therapy.
Symptoms of Myofascial Pain Syndrome may include:
- Deep, aching pain in a muscle
- Pain that persists or worsens
- A tender knot in a muscle
- Difficulty sleeping due to pain
Myofascial Release Therapy at Comprehensive Chiropractic, Physical Therapy & Laser in San Antonio
Dr. Oliver treats myofascial pain syndromes such as myofascial trigger points or adhesions with manual myofascial therapy. This therapy normally includes the use of direct pressure upon the trigger point, or the use of active anchor-and-stretch myofascial release techniques. Stretching and exercise programs along with additional non invasive therapies may be recommended by the doctor in order to increase speed of recovery.
BEST CHIRO / PHYSICAL THERAPIST I’ve ever been to!!! And I mean that! I have been seeing Chiropractors for over 40 years with neck and back issues. I had severe chronic pain in the right side of my neck that would be so debilitating I couldn’t even turn my head. I’d see a Chiro – get it adjusted only to have to return two days later for another “fix”.
Then I was referred to Dr. Oliver by my Primary Care Physician for IT Band pain (left hip down the leg). After the initial evaluation, he talked to me about the treatment and what to expect. After a few weeks of this treatment by him and his AMAZING staff of therapists, I was able to start lifting weights in the gym again and resume my regular strength training workouts!
I also talked to Dr. Oliver about my chronic neck pain and my frequent lower back pain. After completing a long questionnaire and x-rays, my treatment plan began. The treatment plan involved a nutritional consultation, a detox/cleanse and many new PT techniques to re-align my spine and straighten the very obvious curve in my neck. These exercises have also increased strength in my neck muscles and helped improve my posture significantly. The pain is now GONE!!! When I have a flare, it’s usually because of my diet and I have learned what to avoid.
I am now on a maintenance schedule with Dr. Oliver and his wonderful staff twice a month. I enjoy the happy and friendly atmosphere of his office and brag about him with everyone who needs Chiropractic care.
I you are looking for a Chiropractor / Therapist that is knowledgeable about total health and fitness, then Dr. Charlie Oliver is the man for you!!
Dr. Oliver prescribed a plan for me that has COMPLETELY worked and made all pain disappear. What sets him apart from others is that he also made a path to solve the underlying problem that caused the pain in the first place. His employees who take me through all the exercises are simply OUTSTANDING in manners and professionalism. I call them ‘my angels’.
Go here. Go here. Go here if you are having problems. A 100% satisfied recommendation!
First visit. So far so good. Dr was very direct on what he could to and could not do. Told him my main concern was cost, he said he understood and could work with me. Front desk staff very friendly. Took me on a brief tour, offered water and was concerned of my needs. For a first visit I would say it was a excellent experience.
Let me just tell you about the best medical experience I have ever had. I went to Dr. Oliver for a specific problem after a failed attempt at chiropractic care in another office. He and his staff listened to me and offered me treatment plans to improve not only my back but my overall health. I didn’t know how bad I’d been feeling until I began to feel better! They take great lengths to offer personalized care and really get to know their patients. I would highly recommend this office, Dr. Oliver and his staff for any ailments you may be having.
Dr. Oliver is one of the top two doctors I have ever visited with. Today was my first visit at his clinic and all I can say is WOW!! The office and Dr. Oliver really take the time to explain everything to you and make sure to maintain communication amongst each other. Dr. Oliver is a very intelligent, compassionate, understanding, and yet a caring doctor. You can definitely tell his number one priority is to help you feel better. I feel very fortunate to have found an office like his and look forward to getting better.
First visit for cronic, acute back pain. Dr. Oliver was able to determine the root cause of the pain which, I must say, other doctors I’ve seen hadn’t even attempted to find.
I have spondylolesthesis (a forward shifting of a vertebrae) which allows diminished mobility and flexibility because of the level of constant pain. Yes, the shift caused discs to rupture and touch a nerve. The nerve (being only the transmitting link to the brain for feeling) however, goes to something else telling the nerve what to feel.
That “something else” is the CAUSE of the pain. In my case, it is a specific muscle attached to the spine.
I was referred to Dr. Oliver after a neck injury. I had never endured such pain to my neck to where I couldn’t lift a grocery bag. NO matter what my posture was (sitting, standing, laying down), I was in lots of pain. When I called I was concerned they wouldn’t have time to fit me in. Once I explained my situation and pain they had me wait a day for swelling to go down then to come in the next day. I could tell that he “fit” me in cause he was very busy. He still took the time to give me a full evaluation, The staff was amazing and friendly too, Even though I was in pain they could still make you smile. After a week of following Dr. Oliver’s instructions, I was back to normal! I would refer him to any one!!! Thank you Dr. Oliver and Staff
Doctor Oliver and his staff are wonderful! I would recommend him to everyone.
I originally visited Integrative Medical for issues I was having with my back. After 3 sessions I felt the staff was just throwing me on a massage bed and had me do silly excericises similar to what I did in elementary school for stretches. I had explained my issues to a friend and she recommended me to try out Dr. Oliver. From the minute I walked in Dr. Oliver’s Office, I felt the staff seemed more professional. Dr. Oliver had up to date X-ray equipment that was more detailed oriented. He explained and showed more details to what was my problem with my back than what I got from Integrative Medical. Dr. Oliver would pop my neck and back into place, had me do more challenging excersises that actually strengthened my back, and had more state of the art equipment to treat people with. Needless to say, I left Integrative Medical to continue and complete my 30 sessions with Dr. Oliver. I felt more welcomed as well as more confident in what I was getting from Dr. Oliver than Integrative Medical. I would reccommend Dr. Oliver to any of my personal friends and family.
