Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release focuses on finding knots or tender spots within the muscle and “breaking” them up. This technique requires the use of a foam roller. Foam rollers are cylinders made of foam which acts as a pressure point stimulant helping you find the tender spots. Hold the foam roller there for a minimum of thirty seconds. Just enough time to increase the Golgi tendon organ and decrease muscle spindle action.

Examples of myofascial relief:

  • Calves
  • TFL / IT Bands
  • Adductors
  • Piriformis
  • Lats
