Myofascial Release: Our therapist is trained in Myofascial Release, asafe and effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Myofascial Release (a type of manual therapy) can be beneficial for the following populations for treatment of VOICE and/or SWALLOWING dysfunction:
Traumatic injuries to the head, neck, or throat
Head and neck cancer
Muscle tension dysphonia (MTD)
Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ)
Excessive tension related to voice disorders (nodules, vocal fold, paralysis, etc.)
Any other disorder which causes increased tension and pain in the jaw, neck, or throat.
Manual Therapy is safe and effective. An additional prescription or specific insurance approval is not required as this therapy is done in conjunction with traditional therapy exercises during your swallowing or voice therapy session.
