Soft-tissue dysfunction is a common issue in adolescents that can cause injury.  Mobility deficits can affect sport performance, agility, running mechanics, and other athletic demands.  Myofascial release techniques with foam rolling and PNF stretching can help improve mobility and decrease risk of injury.  This session will discuss, demonstrate, and try out these various techniques.  These myofascial techniques are a lifelong fitness skill that will benefit students of any sport or level of ability.
