Can you move? Hips and shoulders should be very mobile, but they often lock up, creating a cycle of improper movement and injury. Functional activities, like walking, require extension, flexion and rotation of the hips and shoulders. If hindered, the nervous system will alter the spine or gait. Learn to identify these patterns and address these areas with self-myofascial release. This approach can create myofascial relationships that optimize movement, prevent injury and prepare the body.
