Treating skeletal muscle immobility and pain can be quite a complicated process that will take a lot of time. There are a lot of people who are struggling with such health issues, and most of them are probably like me, really skeptical regarding trying alternative therapies. But, with my story, I really hope to make those people realize that alternative therapies do deserve a try. In my case, I’m referring to Myofascial release or MFR which is an alternative medicine therapy that is able to treat muscle immobility and pain via relaxation. I’m talking about the relaxation of the contracted muscles, improvement in the blood and lymphatic circulation and stimulating the stretching reflexes in the muscles.
I’m telling you this story because I want everyone to know the person who changed my life. I have been having some serious issue with both of my shoulders, and they resulted in the fact that I was not able to raise my arms above the parallel level with the ground without feeling excruciating pain. I truly believe that my physical problems started a few years ago when my wife died of cancer. All the pain that I was suffering managed to create a lot of physical problems for me. But, one day, last year, my family physician recommended that I make an appointment with Dr. Maryam from the Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic, an Ottawa massage therapist and that’s exactly what I did.
The First Appointment
I can admit without hesitation that meeting Dr. Maryam changed my life. During the first therapy session, we talked a lot, and I explained to her everything that has been bothering me both emotionally and physically. She used her MFR skills in order to fix my shoulders, and she also showed me a high sensitivity. The first session was more about helping me understand my feelings and my inner pain and all the ways that these made my body react. It was a sure thing that my personal distress was causing all kinds of physical issues. If you didn’t know, MFR is a safe and effective hands-on technique involving applying gentle sustained pressure into the connective tissue. Dr. Mayram did just this, and even after the first session I felt an improvement,
My Overall Experience
The best thing about going to see Dr. Mayram from the Ottawa Physiotherapy Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic was the fact that she is able to treat the whole patient. Not only that she managed to eliminate the horrible pain that I had I my shoulders after just three months of treatment, but she also managed to help me become more relaxed and balanced as a person. The best thing is that besides feeling better both physically and emotionally, I also gained a friend. Dr. Maryam Hassanzadeh is the clinical director at Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic, and she holds an academic degree in Chiropractic. She can help all those who suffer from various musculoskeletal conditions, and the best thing is that she provides care in a multi-lingual setting including English, Spanish, and Farsi. I would totally recommend her to anyone that struggles with these kinds of health issues.
