Dr. Michael Fredericson teaches you how to get the most from your foam roller through self-massage and stretching techniques. Foam roller massage is comparable to deep tissue massage, myofascial release and trigger point therapy. Performing these exercises on a regular basis will help you to increase flexibility, reduce muscle tension and pain, and improve performance.
This helpful guide to the foam roller features descriptive instructions and photo demonstrations for each exercise. Exercises are organized by muscle to allow you to target specific areas.
Along with the foam roller, Foam Roller Techniques also contains exercises that utilize the Stretch Out® Strap, Slant™, Super Pinky Ball, Gymnic® Exercise Balls, and FitBALL® Body Therapy Balls.
