본 연구는 근막이완요법의 효과를 보기 위하여 중년여성에서 근막요법 전후의 피로와 신경전도에 미치는 영향을 관찰하였다. 28명의 중년여성을 대상으로 오후 6시 이후에 2일 간격으로 총 3회(1, 3, 5 일) 근막이완요법을 실시하였으며, 근막이완요법 전 후의 통증 정도 변화를 설문 조사하였으며, 통각계를 이용하여 승모근에서 압력통각역치와 시각적 통증강도를 측정하였다. 정중신경에서 운동신경전도와 감각신경전도 검사를 실시하여 잠복기, 진폭, 신경전도속도를 측정하였다. 설문조사결과 피로를 많이 느끼는 시간은 18~21시였으며, 피로와 통증을 가장 많이 느끼는 부위는 어깨부위로 조사되었다. 근막이완요법 후에 통증의 정도, 압력통각역치, 시각적 통증강도는 근막이완요법전보다 유의적으로 감소하였다. 근막이완요법전보다 근막이완요법이후 운동신경의 잠복기는 유의적으로 감소되었고 진폭은 유의적으로 증가하였으며 감각신경의 잠복기는 유의적으로 감소되었다. 이와 같은 결과 근막이완요법은 중년여성에서 통증 개선을 위한 대체요법으로 사용될 수 있을 것으로 사료된다.
