It does not have to be full-out exercises or workouts that bring on the discomfort. It comes when you least expect it. So how can you prevent such injuries from happening? Besides the obvious things like stretching, warming up, and strengthening, we recommend incorporating massage tools to have at your disposal. Like any routine, finding the right tool, timing, and intervals takes trial and error. Start with massage tools that will cover a lot of other areas in your body to get the most out of your purchase.
