Myofascial Release is a safe and effective hands-on approach to the treatment of the whole body, which involves applying gentle sustained pressure into connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. In order to evaluate and treat the cause of your symptoms, the MFR practitioner applies a variety of sustained pressures, in combination with stretch and motion to melt and unravel tension and tissue restrictions in your body. Pressures range from heavy to light depending on your body’s needs.
Myofascial restrictions in one area of the body can affect the whole body. These restrictions create pain and stiffness making it difficult for you to move and prohibiting you from doing those things you love to do. In fact, such restrictions can produce tensile pressures of about 2,000 pounds per square inch. Myofascial release eliminates the restrictions, taking the pressure off the pain sensitive structures in your body. This eliminates your pain, restores healthy alignment, and allows you to function in a more optimal state.
Dr. Halinski uses a Flashlamp Pulsed Dye Laser for the treatment of warts. This laser provides patients with a minimally painful surgery and post-surgery experience, a much shorter recovery time to return to normal activities almost immediately, and little or no anesthetic required. Clinical studies have proven that laser treatment of resistant warts is successful where acids, cryogenics, chemical agents, and surgical excision have failed.
Many patients describe each laser pulse, which lasts for only a fraction of a second, as a snapping rubber band against the skin. The pulsed dye laser leaves no open wounds following the treatment, resulting in little or no chance of post-treatment infection.
The laser treatment works by selective absorption of laser energy by the blood supply, which feeds the wart. The treated area then separates from the skin and gradually sloughs off. Depending on the size and type of wart, some conditions will respond to the very first treatment, but most conditions will require additional treatment sessions.
