Repetitive movements, sudden injuries, or overcompensation of weak muscle groups can lead to adhesions in the fascial tissue around your muscles. These adhesions are made of scar tissue, building up around the affected muscles & leaving them feeling tight & stiff. If left unresolved, these adhesions can lead to muscle strains or tears by shortening & reducing your muscles mobility. To prevent these painful injuries & eliminate the undo stress on your muscles, you can use a foam roller & lacrosse ball to smooth out the adhesions as they develop. Not only can a foam roller & Lacrosse ball help you loosen up tight, shortened muscles, but can also help your body relax & alleviate tension. After just 50 minutes of full body foam rolling, your muscles will not only feel better but will also experience a greater range of motion.
