Receive many of the same benefits of a sports massage, without the big price tag with a foam roller. By using your own body weight coupled with a foam roller you can target a specific muscle group and perform self-myofascial release. Foam rolling helps by breaking down soft tissue adhesions and scar tissue and soothing tight fascia while also increasing blood flow and circulation to the soft tissues. Self-myofascial release with a foam roller is absolutely necessary for maintaining athletic progress, giving immediate range of motion benefits and aiding recovery.
Foam rollers can also be used in a variety of other activities: physical therapy, training and conditioning, core strength and stability, assisting in core training, stretching, postural alignment and balance exercises.
