A Tale of Tight Traps

Do you ever have tightness in your upper back, traps or neck?  Here is a great way to release that tension using a lacrosse ball and the wall!

It’s pretty easy to set this up, but a little painful especially if it’s tight!  Just place the ball against the wall and push against it until you find the sweet spot.  I like to move my arm across my body or sometimes I will put my arms across my chest and then rock side to side massaging the painful spot.  If you don’t have a lacrosse ball, a golf ball or even tennis ball works well!  And for some extra relief, put the ball in the freezer and you are able to combine soft tissue release with icing!

Happy Wednesday!
