Unfortunately, sitting upright at a desk all day can harm your joints and muscles in more ways than you can imagine. So how do we combat this? By using a foam roller!

Foam rollers are extremely effective when it comes to physique-building, preventing injuries as well as recovery. They also produce almost immediate results and are great for the hip pocket. Keep reading to find out why you should try one.

1. Prevents injury and aids fast recovery

For years therapists have used the myofascial release mechanism, a technique that involves medium pressure to be applied while slowly dragging across the body. Using a foam roller mimics this action and aids in the process of soft-tissue healing and can also prevent injury.

2. Breaks up scar tissue

Allowing your body to break up scar tissue and adhesions between the skin, muscles and bones is an important function.

When using a foam roller, targeted pressure is placed upon your fascia (your body’s connective tissue), which releases trigger points where you’re feeling pain. This is likely to relieve soreness and tight muscles.

3. Improves mobility and flexibility

Foam rolling has also shown to loosen muscles and relax the body. Using a foam roller on your hips and knees may help improve flexibility and range of motion.

4. Break down lactic acid to aid recovery

Lactic acid is a by-product of muscle metabolism which can lead to discomfort and soreness. Foam rolling after a work out is a great way to break down lactic acid build-up which may also lessen muscle soreness.
