Therapists and PT’s have used Self-Myofascial Release techniques for years to help their patients prevent and alleviate injuries.
And now you can do it at home whenever you need!
How does Self-Myofascial Release work?
Very similar to a trigger point massage, Self-Myofascial Release works by applying pressure to tight spots in a muscle. Through applying pressure, you help the muscle basically relax itself.
When the muscle relaxes, you are then able to properly mobilize your joints and get the right muscles working!
When muscles are tight they can become inhibited and prevent you from having proper mobility and therefore limit your range of motion.
Ever wonder why you can't squat as low? Or why you can't press overhead without feeling your low back?
Ever wonder why your neck aches and you can't seem to stand up straight?
Well part of that is TIGHT MUSCLES!
These tight muscles can't simply be stretched.
It's like a knot in your shoelace. If you simply stretch it, the knot doesn't go away and the shoelace doesn't return to normal.
Actually, stretching it often only ends up doing more harm than good!
Just like that knot in your shoelace, restoring proper mobility and flexibility requires more than just stretching! It requires "undoing" that knot! AKA it needs to be relaxed through Self-Myofascial Release!
