Try Foam to Roll Away Sore Muscles
A foam roller can be used to perform a self-massage of muscle tissues. Often, this type of massage can be used in place of a deep tissue massage that you would receive from a massage therapist.
Stress and tension can both be reduced by breaking up the fascia that surrounds the muscles. After the fascia has been released there is an increase in blood flow, flexibility and range of motion. Foam rolling can also help tight muscles recover from a hard workout.
There are several types of foam rollers on the market with different densities and textures. The more dense a roller is, the more intense the massage. The different textures are there to provide relief at trigger points and provide a deeper penetrating massage.
