Muscle Release

List of ways to release a muscle from contraction, spasm, tightness, or a hold that make the muscle or nerve pain. Muscle Release Techniques.

Muscle Release is an instant release of pain.
- The goal here is to stop pain from a muscle that has been causing pain for hours, days, or weeks. If you are having continuous pain in a muscle, then "Muscle Release" techniques may be used.

The hope is that by using the one or many of the techniques over a period of time, the muscle will relax and stay relaxed, and not resume the constricted and painful status.

From most effective to least:

1. Flex the muscle, exercise the specific muscle that refuses to release, hold for five seconds then slowly release. Repeat a few times until the pain goes away.

Note: Each muscle has two ways of being flexed, maybe you can think of one as the push, and the other as the pull, flex both ways and release slowly.

2. Massage until released

3. T.E.N.S.

4. Pushing on the muscle, direct pressure to the muscle.

Research and Reference:

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (acronym TENS) is the use of electric current produced by a device to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes. TENS by definition covers the complete range of transcutaneously applied currents used for nerve excitation although the term is often used with a more restrictive intent, namely to describe the kind of pulses produced by portable stimulators used to treat pain. The unit is usually connected to the skin using two or more electrodes. A typical battery-operated TENS unit is able to modulate pulse width, frequency and intensity. Generally TENS is applied at high frequency (>50 Hz) with an intensity below motor contraction (sensory intensity) or low frequency (
