Therapy Thursday with REAL pt! 💪 . @therod_316 shows how to release the tissues of the quadriceps through Self Myofascial Release. . Releases are designed to pin and stretch tissue to improve the ability of the layers of tisssue to glide past each other. Why is this important? To put it simply, when tissues lose their ability to glide over each other, a decrease in blood flow and oxygen results in a chemical reaction that binds tissues together. This irritates the peripheral nerves which mimics joint pain or pathoanatomy. Motion is lotion people! 🕺💃 . #REALpt #notBSpt #REALresults . #chicagophysicaltherapy #physicaltherapy #rehab #rehabilitation #prehab #fitness #health #wellness #realmovement #bucktowncrossfit #wod #crossfit #myofascia #performance #quadriceps
