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.
