What Are The Benefits of Foam Rolling?

Foam rolling is a self-myofascial release (SMR) technique. It can help relieve muscle tightness, soreness, inflammation, and increase your joint range of motion. Foam rolling can be an effective tool to add to your warm-up or cooldown, before and after exercise.

  1. Foam rolling can be beneficial for easing sore muscles and reducing inflammation.
  2. Foam rolling may help increase your range of motion.
  3. Foam rolling may be effective for easing pain in the body and help ease tension in the back, too.
  4. Foam rolling has shown promising results for the treatment of fibromyalgia symptoms.

Foam rolling is generally considered safe to do if you experience muscle tightness or regularly exercise. But avoid foam rolling if you have a serious injury such as a muscle tear or break, unless your doctor or a physical therapist has cleared you first.
