Massage Stick - Muscle Roller Stick Self-Myofascial Release - Quadriceps
Although self-myofascial release (SMR) techniques can make a great addition to one self-maintenance routine, they will never replace a trained professional. SMR tools work in different ways according to design and how one uses them. One such tool is a massage stick or muscle roller stick. There are limitations on what one can achieve in a self-treatment context, partially due to applying tools. One can get the best results by using the right tool in the proper context and not expecting one tool to do everything. Even a combination of tools will not treat everything due to the limitations mentioned. The full article on Myofascial release using a Massage Stick / Muscle Roller Stick covers using such a tool to treat the quadriceps muscles in a self-treatment context.
