In brief: Do It Yourself
Myofascial release techniques press on muscles, tendons and other soft tissue to release tension and relieve pain.
Instead of having someone do this for you, you can do this yourself with balls or foam rollers. At home, at work or in the car. Rig up your seat. Or lay down on the floor. The humble tennis ball can help you heal. Take a deep breath and then sigh with relief. It feels great!
