When muscle tissues have constant tension from misalignment and poor posture, the connective fibers cross link and become denser in an attempt to withstand the pulling of tension.
The thickening of the connective tissues creates more stability for the joints, but restricts mobility.
Restricted mobility in any joint causes weakness. This weakness makes the body more prone to injury. Joint weakness, especially in the hands, wrists, elbows and knees, can cause pain, inflammation, and numbness.
Connective Tissue Release (CTR) is very effective at reducing or correcting many body challenges, such as:
- Knee pain
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Hip pain
- Shoulder pain
- Tennis elbow
- Repetitive strains
- Carpal tunnel
