Rhomboids SMR

Rhomboids self-myofascial release (SMR) is a self-administered soft-tissue treatment for the upper body, usually using a foam roller, lacrosse ball, or other "trigger point" massage tool. By applying pressure strategically to the rhomboid muscles of the mid back, some people find they can cause this often painful and tight area to relax or "release." Rhomboids SMR is often accompanied by SMR on the lats, or by stretches that target the rhomboids or lats.


  1. Can encourage blood flow to the rhomboid muscles
  2. Effective as part of a warm-up or post-workout recovery
  3. May help contribute to temporary increases in range of motion in the thoracic spine
