Foam Rolling

How often should I foam roll? That’s a question I get a lot of, and I’ll talk about it a little here. If you want to know more about specifics involving your specific set of circumstances, let me know and we can figure out what is right for you.

Foam rolling can help reduce myofascial adhesions, muscle soreness, increase range of motion, and decrease pain among other things. It’s a useful thing to do on your own that can have a significant impact. As a rule of thumb, stretching and foam rolling after exercise is the best time to do it and can be done after every workout. Otherwise, if you used the foam roll every other day, it would be helpful. There are plenty of online videos with instructions of how to use a foam roll effectively, and here’s a brief description of what to do.
