Elevated Sports Foam Rollers - Better Flexibility Makes For Better Sports Performance
Raise the Bar, By Increasing Flexibility Says Company: Up on Top
On first glance, the tools do not appear remarkable (unlike many of the flashy/gimmicky items this industry releases on a regular basis) however when used correctly, they promise a substantial speeding up of recovery from a number of muscle related injuries. Ultimately they act by breaking up scar tissue and soft tissue bonds. The cylindrical shape combined with the user's body weight massage targeted areas/muscle groups. Meaning that they make it possible to have a massage without the time inconveniences and costs involved with regular visits to a physiotherapist.
Andy Smith elaborated: 'the adoption of the tools pre and post workout - were notable in the Football World Cup held in Brazil, where many international teams had incorporated them into their pre match rituals.' The soothing of this superficial fascia which helps to promote blood flow to the soft tissue is very important in warming up, keeping limber and flexible - and would therefore appear commonplace on the side of football field.
Superficial fascia, as used above, from conversations with Andy Smith, refers to: "the connective tissue that is found beneath the skin. This tissue links and covers blood vessels, nerves, muscles, and bones. The fascia and muscle combining to form the mysofascial system." In the simplest terms, when muscles and fascia tend to get stuck, typically it is because the athlete has not stretched or warmed up enough. The adhesion limits muscle movements and this interferes with performance. It can also cause severe pain, reduced flexibility, and tenderness in an athlete.
To release this adhesion, an athlete is required to undertake a technique referred to as 'myofascial release.' This technique involves applying gentle but sustained pressure on the soft tissue. During this technique, it is also important to target the fascia. This helps to lengthen and soften the fascia and break up the adhesions and any scar tissue that is present between the bones, muscles, and skin. Scientific evidence shows that myofascial release helps to offer relief from different types of joint and muscle pains.
Some of the symptoms that it can address include shin splints and IT band syndrome. It also enhances flexibility and an athlete's range of motion. This myofascial release, it can be argued, is best achieved using foam rollers - and it appears that the Elevated Sports Foam Roller is a suitable mid-range tool to begin the journey with.
