How to use a Foam Roller
Foam rollers offer many of the same benefits as a therapeutic massage or sports massage at a fraction of the cost. In essence, you are using your own body weight to rejuvenate your muscles, restore balance and increase your strength.
The foam roller stretches your muscles and tendons, breaking up trigger points, and soothing tight fascia while increasing blood flow and circulation to soft tissues. Foam rolling can also breakdown adhesions and scar tissue, revitalizing weakened areas and alleviating pain.
