Foam Roller Reduces Shoulder Pain
Follow this simple VIDEO to reduce inflammation, reduce painful trigger points, release fascia and increase range of motion in the shoulder and surrounding areas. These muscles work hard every day, often without rest, and respond positively to attention and self massage. The foam roller and massage balls can address these painful areas, successfully. Use them several times per week to progressively release trigger points that may return after daily use. Pain in the shoulders can refer into the organs, back, head, neck and chest area. Imbalances in the organs, back, head and neck can create painful referrals in the shoulder area. TMJ Dysfunction can result in shoulder pain, and vice versa.
