COURSE OFFERED: Self Myofascial Release by Dr. Lecovin

Do you experience chronic muscle and joint pain? Do you have tight knots and sore spots throughout your body? You are not alone. These knots are known as Myofascial trigger points.

Trigger points can result in either local or referred pain. Studies show that trigger points can be a primary cause of pain in up to 90 percent of musculoskeletal conditions.

While most of us don’t have the luxury getting a massage every day to work out these knots, we can experience the similar benefits with the use of a foam roller or tennis ball.

By applying pressure to muscles, a reflex is stimulated that reduces muscle tension, restrictions and adhesions thereby improving soft tissue extensibility. The result is pain reduction and improvements in flexibility, function and performance.
