Ever wondered why you see soo many people killing themselves on a foam roller? What does it even do?
Foam rollers are used essentially as a self-massage of muscles with knots. By applying deep compression on a sore or tight muscle, you are helping to break up or relax tight muscles and adhesions formed between muscle layers and their surroundings. Imagine you are tenderizing your own muscles. They should be soft and supple like a baby’s muscles. However, if our muscles are not taken care of properly we can experience loss of flexibility, adhesions, and painful movement.
Foam rolling isn’t just for athletes – anyone who has tight muscles from athletes to tradies to desk workers can benefit from using one.
