Myofascial slings and their benefits to you
Myofascial Slings are functional components of the musculoskeletal and connective tissue systems. If we think of our torso as a core cylinder, there are multiple slings that wrap around the cylinder in different orientations. The torso (cylinder) depends on strength and balance from the slings to provide a stable foundation for effective movement.
Benefits from integrating exercises that activate the myofascial slings in workouts:
- Improved quality of movement
- Improved symmetry
- Improved sports/exercise performance
- Decreased possibility for injury
- In case of pain from overreaching and/or muscle imbalances: The effect of pain can be eliminated by reducing the burden of overload on overworked muscles in the chain.
Here are some video exercise examples.
I hope this article educated you on amazing applications of myofascial slings. Until the next writing.
