Myofascial Release is also helpful for the athlete who wishes to improve performance, whose game may have slipped due to long term play.
Example: A pitcher who has been pitching for 3-4 years and has lost strength and power in his pitch. Myofascial Release can restore balance to the pelvis, unglue or release the shoulder, thus allowing the pitcher to regain his game and perhaps even throw harder and stronger.
This applies to all areas of sports, weather it be baseball, water polo, football, hockey, cycling or endurance running. What ever your sport Myofascial Release could be helpful.
