Chiropractors Perth Advice: the foam roller

The foam roller is one of the easy but very smart tools to apply some self-myofascial release. Pardon? Yes, an easier word for it is the “poor man’s massage”, because you can release your muscles yourself.

Today I’m going to show you how to use the foam roller. This is an advanced tool for muscle self-release. We’re going to start with the quads. So coming over the top of the foam roller, keeping your back neutral, rolling back and forth over from the top to the bottom.

When you find a spot that you can really feel, hold still on it, and bend the knee back and forth to really get into that trigger point.

Coming down the front of the legs, this one is really good for shin splints. Placing your shins on the foam roller, roll back and forth over them. This is an area you can’t stretch usually, so it’s a really good one. When you get that same spot, point your toes, bend them, point your toes, bend them.
