Who Foam Rolls & Why?

All successful athletes, physical therapist, chiropractors and trainers foam roll. Why do they insist foam rolling is beneficial? Evidence suggests that daily foam rolling improves overall posture and the feeling of well-being thus it improves your overall quality of life. Let’s imagine there is a kink or slight break in a circuit or a clog in a piping system that reflects what is ging on in your body. Each step you take, breath, digestive effort and detox effort is reduced by the magnitude of that “clogged area.” What foam rolling essentially accomplishes is the equivalent to de-clogging pipes, allowing them to flow without restrictive pressures. When your interstitial fluid can flow effortlessly, tissues are oxygenated more effectively and microorganisms & dead tissue are oxidation/reduced more effectively.
