Self-Myofascial Release (SMR) - Massage Balls and SMR tools
Although many companies are advertising and selling various self-myofascial release products, there are limits to the usefulness of such products in a self-treatment context. Equally, if the wrong product or techniques is applied in the wrong context then one can actually make symptoms far worse. The article about self-myofascial release using massage balls and trigger point therapy explains some of the limitations of such methods in a self-treatment context. Unfortunately, anybody can design, sell or produce videos about such self-treatment products and with zero to some knowledge of the actual therapy techniques such products are trying to replicate.
