Foam Roll Like a Pro
Foam Roll techniques can improve flexibility, function, performance, and reduce injuries.
Basically, the foam roller, massage stick, or tennis ball is applying pressure. This
pressure massages away restrictions to normal soft-tissue extensibility. In doing
so, the pressure improves your “tissue quality,” whereas traditional stretching only
improves your “tissue length.” We need to improve tissue quality first by removing
the adhesions and scar tissue that may be impairing the length of your tissue to truly
improve flexibility and recoverability.
