The New Hot Ticket: Foam Rolling

If you’re experiencing athletic injury, overuse syndrome or postural stress from excessive sitting, try foam rolling! This powerful therapeutic tool is a very affordable and easy-to-use home therapy that provides structural reinforcement and balance to the muscles and soft tissues of the body.

It’s like having a deep, gliding massage!

The Positive Aspects

Healthy Woman

Exercise often induces micro-tears and swelling in muscle fibers, which impinge on nerves and blood vessels. Over time, this can develop into adhesions and scar tissue. Foam rolling helps to smooth out these obstructions and break down potential adhesions. Here are some additional benefits:

  • Helps muscles to relax
  • Improves blood circulation to all parts of the body
  • Speeds up workout recovery
  • Boosts sports performance
  • Lengthens short, tight muscles
  • Reduces pain and increases range-of-motion
