Welcome to the Myofascial Treatment Center

Myofascial Treatment Center is a physical therapy clinic offering a hands-on approach to treating pain and dysfunction. It is this full-hour, one-on-one approach that allows for the kinds of positive changes that most traditional physical therapy services do not have time for. Therapy is applied with compassion in a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere. We accept Medicare and Tricare insurance.

Accurate evaluations, along with appropriate treatment and providing the atmosphere for true healing requires attention to one client at a time. Our clients continually tell us how much they appreciate the time allowed to hear their stories and address their concerns. Compassion, combined with years of experience, enables our therapists to provide the high level treatment our patients have been seeking.

There is a difference in Physical Therapy Centers.

What is Fascia?

Fascia is a tough connective tissue that spreads throughout the body in a three-dimensional web from head to foot without interruption.

The fascia covers the muscles, bones, nerves, organs and blood vessels down to the cellular level. It is said that if we could remove all structures of the body except the fascia, the body would retain its shape. When injured, (injury includes trauma, inflammation, surgery, poor posture, stress, and repetitive use), fascia binds down like bailing wire and can exert up to 2000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures. The tension causes altered posture, excessive joint compression, decreased range of motion, decreased muscle efficiency, and multiple other symptoms patients struggle with daily. In some patients, blood vessels and nerve roots can become caught creating entrapment syndromes and ischemic-like conditions.
