Foam Rolling, a form of self-myfascial release, gives you the ability to aid your overworked muscles.
When muscles are overworked, the soft tissue known as the fascia becomes inflamed and thick, which you feel as tight, sore muscles.
By using a foam roller, you can break up that soft tissue and help revert muscles back to their normal state.
Medical Applications The high density Foam Roller stretches muscles and tendons, breaks down soft tissue adhesion, and soothes tight fascia while increasing blood flow and circulation to the soft tissues.
How it works Using your own body weight and a Foam Roller, you can perform a self-massage or Myofascial release.
By applying gentle, sustained pressure on the soft tissues, Myofascial release results in softening and lengthening of the fascia. Myofascial release has been shown to relieve various muscle and joint pains such as IT band syndrome and shin splints as well as improving flexibility and range of motion.
