First of all, we need to understand why the pain comes around again and again. Mostly, it happens due to small injuries or unhealthy habits, like sitting hunched. Our bodies can adapt muscles to move or tighten incorrectly, causing imbalance. For instance, if you pull your left shoulder a little bit forward, you’ll notice your right shoulder going back. However, if you do this often enough, your body will learn to keep the left shoulder in that position, which causes tension and pain as a consequence.
What is myofascial release?
That’s where myofascial release comes to help you. Fascia is a thin connectivity tissue, which covers your muscles to protect their structure. Due to certain restrictions of these tissues, your muscles become tense and don’t get enough blood and lymph flows. Basically, what happens is that your myofascial system builds up and helps hold your muscles in the wrong way. Two simple tennis balls can help you relax your tightened muscles and balance out your body to prevent chronic abnormal spasms.
