Are your muscles chronically contracted?
Such systemic tension in our musculoskeletal system has myriad ramifications in the present and a ripple effect that will be felt long in the future. That is why we make alleviating such tension a top priority at our office in Ramsey. When you think about it, almost every facet of the modern lifestyle is geared toward creating muscle tension:
- Commuting, working
- Sitting incessantly
- Sedentary forms of entertainment
- Poor diets and a lack of exercise
This tension is accumulating constantly and pulling your body out of alignment. The best thing you can do to avoid tension on a daily basis is to stretch and exercise regularly. But sometimes your body needs a little more- an extra layer of attention that focuses specifically on the root causes of systemic muscle tightness. All this tension calls for myofascial release!
