Foam rollers are an easy and convenient way to massage and stretch the muscles and work out the "knots". At Gilbert Chiropractic foam roller exercises are easy to do at home or while at the gym. Foam rolling is also called myofascial release as it works the fascia, the connective tissue that wraps and bundles muscles together. Myofascial adhesions can develop through stress, repetitive motions, overuse, trainings and injuries.
To get the full benefit of foam rolling, watch this video with Dr. Mercola's personal trainer as she demonstrates the proper techniques for foam roller exercises.
