The Art of Foam Rolling

The Art of Foam Rolling- Applying the Technique of Self-Myofascial Release

 

Foam rolling is a self-myofascial release (SMR) stretching technique that has been embraced throughout the fitness industry as well as Health professionals such as myself, a Chiropractor. Foam Rolling is an effective and simple to do technique that delivers positive, feel good results. Foam rollers have become easily accessible, either shared at the gym or found in almost any sporting goods aisle to bring home for a minimal investment. As Chiropractor, Movement Restoration and Corrective Exercise Specialist I find them invaulable in delivering improvements in flexibility, muscle recovery, movement efficiency, inhibiting overactive muscles, and pain reduction with just minutes of application.

 

As my pateint I will instruct you as to how to use the foam roller so you can receive the most benefits from thier use. Once you pruchase a foam roller and take it home you'll wnat to remeber to slowly roll the targeted area until the most tender spot is found. Hold on that spot while relaxing the targeted area and discomfort is reduce, between 30 seconds and 90 seconds. During the exercises it is important to maintain core stability. Use the drawing-in maneuver (pulling the navel in toward the spine) to maintain stability in the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex. Take the time to experience the exercises and discover how slightly modifying positions or angles can target different areas of the muscle.
