About Foam Rollers and Massage Rollers
Rollers have been steadily increasing in popularity as essential fitness accessories. They have their roots in sports medicine and are now widely used for everything from yoga to weight lifting. If you are still of the opinion that foam rollers are not necessary, then you are missing out on one of the most effective tools for physique-building, exercise recovery, and injury prevention.
The key benefit that underlies foam rolling and massage rollers is their ability to improve the mobility of fascia – the connective tissue that surrounds muscles. Without proper mobility, fibers of the fascia become crossed and can bind to muscles and nerves, inhibiting motion and causing pain. By loosening and stretching the fascia, muscles become more flexible allowing for easier extension, a greater range of motion, decreased chance of injury, and reduced recovery time.
Foam rollers and massage balls can be easily incorporated into stretch routines or stress relief techniques. They usually take only a few minutes of activity but provide long lasting benefits. They are also great to have around the office to help relieve the stiffness associated with sitting for long periods of time. Whether you’re preparing for a workout, rehabilitating a sore muscle, reducing stress tension, or simply want to keep limber at the office, foam rollers and massage balls are an effective accessory.
