What is MYOFASCIAL RELEASE?
Fasica is a connective tissue that connects every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel, and internal organs. In the normal healthy state the fascia is relaxed and soft. It has the ability to stretch and move without restriction. When you experience physical trauma or inflammation the fascia loses its pliability. It can become tight, restricted and a source of tension throughout the rest of the body. Trauma such as a fall, whiplash, surgery or habitual poor posture has a cumulative effect over time and myofascial release can help.
The foam roller, Franklin Balls and other small equipment can assist in releasing and break down tight tissue. Some of the many benefits include: increased circulation and blood flow to the soft tissues, increased flexibility and range of movement, reduction in injury scar tissue, and pain relief.
