FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does foam rolling work?
According to industry experts, foam rolling, a myofascial release technique, is an effective tool to prepare or recover from exercise, relieve persistent pain in muscles and joints, and improve joint flexibility. Foam rollers are thought to activate the nervous system, release fascia, and break up knots and adhesions.
Are foam rollers good for your back?
The short answer is yes… However, it is imperative that you consult a physician about your specific back problem before starting any exercise or fitness protocol including foam rolling. Should foam rolling be an acceptable form of treatment for your back tension, strain or pain, lay on the floor with the foam roller underneath your back in a vertical position (in line with your spine); slowly move from side to side.
How do I use a foam roller?
Depending on the body part you wish to target, foam rolling methods will vary. In most instances, larger foam rollers depend on your body weight in conjunction with the density of the material to maximize effectiveness; therefore, the foam roller is typically placed on the floor while the user lays on top of it, either on their side, front or back, and moves back and forth. Hand-held foam rollers are made to target specific body parts by applying pressure to the roller while gently moving it over the affected area.
