Restore Ease of Movement With This Easy Trick

The fuzz is the sliding surface between the muscles. We feel stiff in the morning because the fuzz becomes solidified. Stretching in the morning helps melt the fuzz the same as when you move.

Dissection of Fascia

If we have an injury, we tend to hold our bodies in a position that keeps us out of pain; fear of pain prevents us from stretching or moving. Day after day, when we limit our range of motion, this stiffness increases and the fuzz fibers start to get intertwined, becoming thicker while building up. This inhibits our potential for movement and our bodies become solidified. Manual therapies such as Fascial Stretch Therapy, Soft Tissue Release and Massage Therapy help break up fuzz and restore movement.

Self-myofascial release using the foam roller and tennis ball, also helps restore movement. Trigger Point Therapy products have come up with a great system of tools to get you moving for freely. They are soft on the outside and harder on the inside, similar to the feeling of using your own hand or that of a therapist. They also help keep you limber between sessions.
