Are you familiar with Self-Myofascial Release?
Self-Myofascial Release (SMR) is a technique that will improve flexibility, muscle recovery, the way your body moves and can also reduce your aches and pains.
According to the Mayo Clinic, SMR focuses on pain believed to arise from myofascial tissues—the tough membranes that wrap, connect, and support your muscles (often referred to as knots).
The myofascial release technique can be done using a foam roller, tennis ball, or hand-held roller such as a rolling pin. SMR focuses on relaxing these knots to get back to optimal muscle motion and function. Benefits of SMR include:
* Correction of muscle imbalances
* Muscle relaxation
* Improved joint range of motion
* Reduced soreness and improved tissue recovery
Take the time to research how to start using the SMR method to ease your aches and pains. It only takes a few minutes a day and requires you to be consistent. Getting into a regular routine of SMR may be one of the best things you can give yourself in the new year. Make 2021 as pain-free as possible.
