Why use foam roller
for myofascial release and massaging tight muscles
Foam roller has a separate muscle adhesions and stimulates the flow of blood effects, to help treat or prevent injuries.
For each designated area, to roll slowly in 1 minute, focus is stretched in the course
Avoid scroll in the tendons, joints, bone structure
2.How it works?
The superficial fascia is a soft connective tissue located just below the skin. It wraps and connects the muscles,
bones, nerves and blood vessels of the body. Together, muscle and fascia make up what is called the myofascia
system. For various reasons including disuse, not enough stretching, or injuries, the fascia and the underlying
muscle tissue can become stuck together. This is called an adhesion and it results in restricted muscle movement.
It also causes pain, soreness and reduced flexibility or range of motion.
Myofascial release is a body work technique in which a practitioner uses gentle, sustained pressure on the soft
tissues while applying traction to the fascia. This technique results in softening and lengthening (release) of the
fascia and breaking down scar tissue or adhesions between skin, muscles and bones. 。
Using a foam roller is simple, but working some areas may take a bit of practice and some body contortion. You
start by finding a relatively open area with some floor space. Position your body with the area you want to work
on top of the foam roller. Your body weight creates the pressure that massages and releases tight spots in the
fascia. You control the pressure by applying more or less body weight on the foam roller and using your hands
and feet to offset your weight as needed. It's helpful to try a variety of positions and see what works best for you.
