Are you super active with running, sports, or weight lifting? Movement is great to keep out muscles strong but too much exercise and not enough rest or recovery can also cause issues!!
Are you on the opposite spectrum and sit most of the day or can’t find the motivation to actually exercise? Prolonged sitting can also cause muscle issues from tightness and lack of inactivity.
Finding the balance between exercise and rest is so important and sometimes a very difficult task to accomplish.
If you have low back pain or hip pain this foam roll muscle release technique might be just what you need no matter what your exercise level is. (You can also use a tennis ball or firm surface to do this)
