Using a Foam Roller to get the knots out

It's cheap, it's easy, and it's like a getting a deep tissue masage. It's the Foam Roller.For something like $20 you can pick up a foam roller at a sporting good store or order online.

What it does is called Myofascial Release in your muscles. Essentially, it's a form of soft tissue therapy that is accomplished by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage, and stimulating the stretch reflex of the muscles and the overlaying fascia (soft tissue).So taking a few minutes each day and doing this self myofascial release using the foam roller can help your muscles rejuvinate and help your body as a whole function optimally.

Using it is easy and most foam rollers come with instructions on how to engage various muscle groups in your body. It's important to remember to take it slow, and when you feel a "soft spot" in your muscle, hold it there for about 10 seconds and let the roller work it's magic. It may be a bit painful at first, but it feels oh so good after you are finished.

Now that's how I roll! I hope you will to!
