Myofascial release has long been used by professional physical therapists and athletic trainers. Now, with the advances in medicine and understanding of how soft tissue affects our bodies, foam rolling has become the go-to self-treatment for pain relief, injury prevention, and enhanced athletic performance. To understand the effects of foam rolling one must understand that muscles have multiple layers and connection points to the skeleton.
Gravity, sitting at a computer, and muscles that are overworked at the gym can all cause our muscles to become sore and tight. Two of the most common symptoms that are alleviated by foam rolling are muscle soreness and joint stiffness. Addressing the
soft tissue around the affected areas within our body allows for improved flexibility and muscle strength.
Introduce foam rolling to your daily routine, in 10 – 15 minute sessions. Whether you are an athlete looking for that edge in performance or simply in pain because you sit at a desk or in a car, our foam roller can help you reach your fitness goals.
