What is Self-Myofascial Release?
Self-Myofascial Release (SMR) is a technique used to release tight muscles or trigger points and facilitate the drainage of congestion that can accumulate in tissues causing pain and inhibiting optimal muscle function. This technique can be performed with the hands, but foam rollers or balls are usually used.
How will it help me?
Self-Myofascial Release can benefit almost anyone. Most of us, at one time or another, will experience muscles that tighten due to acute stress (injuries or new activity), positional stress or repetitive motion. Simply put, this is a way to perform self-massage and trigger point release. Muscles cannot perform optimally if there is tightness or congestion. Imbalances can develop which further impair functionality. Self-Myofascial release helps to correct these conditions so that proper strengthening and functionality can take place.

The long term benefits of self-mysofasical release are improved flexibility, reduced or eliminated pain in muscles or joints and healthier muscles that function properly.
Short Term Benefits
The short term benefit of self-myofasical release is improved flexibility and reduced pain in muscles and joints.
