5 BEST MYOFASCIAL  RELEASE TOOLS 

1.LACROSSE BALL 

One of the most versatile Myofascial Release tools you can have in your arsenal.  It’s firm, it’s grippy, it’s portable, and it’s also very cheap.  If you do not have a lacrosse ball near you, a tennis ball will be a good alternative. 

2.THERACANE

The Theracane is a very specialized tool that is great for pinpointing fascial restrictions other tools may not be able to get into. It is especially good for releasing dysfunctions in the cervical spine.

3.STICK

A stick can prove to be a great myofascial release tool if it is applied with the right technique.  I tend to really like it for rotator cuff dysfunction.

4.SOFT MEDICINE BALL

This specific medicine ball will primarily be to release the musculature in and around the ribcage.  It can also be used for medicine ball training.

5.PVC PIPE

A very cheap alternative to a foam roller, the only difference is that it actually works.  It is ok to start with a foam roller for myofascial release, but after a week or 2 of continued mfr, your progress will plateau.  A pvc pipe is very dense and it will be able to get into the contours of deep fascia that a foam roller would not be capable of doing.
