IS A FOAM ROLLER?
Foam rollers are ideal for self-massage to
release muscle tightness or trigger points. Trigger points are specific “knots”
that form in muscles. They are unique and can be identified because they will
refer pain. Utilizing stretching alone is not always enough to release muscles
tightness, which is why foam rollers have thrived on the mass market.
Foam rolling can assist in breaking up
these muscle knots, resuming normal blood flow and function. They provide the
user the ability to control the healing and recovery process by applying
pressure in precise locations, because only you can feel exactly what is
happening. By applying pressure to specific points on your body you are able to
aid in the recovery of muscles and assist in returning them to normal function.
You can choose from a variety of foam
rollers ranging in material, density and shape that best meets your needs. It
is always recommended to consult with your physician or physical therapist for
the pain and massage / exercise techniques.
