Thoracolumbar Wall Release
This fascia covers the entire lower back area and consists of an anterior, middle, and posterior layer. It is extremely important for coordinated movement and stability. Excessive strain, overuse, repetitive stress and poor posture can bring on thoracolumbar pain in the low, mid or upper back.
- Stand next to a wall.
- Place the ball against the wall, then lean your back against it so that it rests right below your ribs on one side.
- Take small circular rolls, pausing for 20 seconds whenever you find a knot.
- Repeat on the other side.
