The Benefits of Foam Rolling

Foam rolling is a self-myofascial release technique that is intended to reduce muscular tension and post exercise muscle soreness, improve flexibility, circulation, myofascial mobility, and even improve joint range of motion. There are conflicting opinions on the practice of foam rolling. However, several studies have shown the various benefits of this practice. I personally have had incredible success with incorporating foam rolling into treatment with my patients as well as personal experience with reducing pain and improving mobility and range of motion. Not only is this used for decreasing myofascial tension and pain, but it is an excellent tool for improving spine mobility and posture.
