In today’s muscle of the day we actually have a zoomed in picture of what is called adhesion. I talk about adhesion all the time and all the problems it causes.
Adhesion is a really big deal and can cause a ton of problems such as the following:
Having adhesion can lead to a lot of bigger problems down the road as it puts more pressure and force on the surrounding cartilage, tendons, ligaments and disc.
So if you have been diagnosed with some type of injury, be it a tear or disc injury, or even some type of swelling it most likely started as adhesion in the first place.
In the musculoskeletal world most doctors and practitioners completely disregard adhesion, while others pretend they are treating it lacrosse balls, blasters or through exercise.
The beauty of adhesion is that it is completely reversible with expert treatment and diagnosis.
If you leave adhesion in the muscles and joints too long it can lead to bigger problems down the road, so getting on it early can really make a big difference!
