Soft Tissue Work: Lacrosse Ball

By now you have hopefully heard the benefits of soft tissue work. Soft tissue work in a nutshell is basically manual breakdown of your muscles fascia, a skin like covering of the muscle. It can help in relieving soreness, pain, and increasing range of motion. All of our clients do it before every session, and that’s something I highly recommend.

However, typically people just think of foam rolling for soft tissue work. The challenge with a foam roller is it can’t get small nitty-gritty areas. That’s where the lacrosse ball comes in.

Check out the video below as Jared goes over a few variations you can do with the lacrosse ball.
