Elevated Sports Foam Roller Contours Proven To Be Highly Effective
Variable Foam Roller Contours Dig Into Tight Muscles
Customers have reported that the Foam Roller, provides an effective means of self myofascial release - or self massage - by digging deep into muscle tissue to release muscle tightness. Ultimately, foam rollers work by applying pressure to specific points on the body which help in muscle recovery and pain relief. They have been used in various forms, more commonly by professional athletes, coaches and physiotherapists, however they have now become a widespread workout aid for people of all physical abilities.
Spokesman for the Elevated Sports Foam Roller, Andy Smith suggests the: "design, thickness and density of the material; designed and used in manufacturing the foam roller plays a big role in their effectiveness. The design of the contours is responsible for application of appropriate pressure on the muscles." Larger, smooth foam rollers - at the other end of the spectrum, for example - roll well on most surfaces which is beneficial for the larger muscle groups. However, due to their smooth nature, they do not allow for really digging into muscles and more targeted pressure, as is useful for more smaller muscle groups such as the ITBS.
Trigger points are the 'knots' formed in muscles due to their continuous exertion, and these are the knots that are responsible for pain referral. As mentioned, the most common example of pain referral is the pain felt in the hip or in the leg when pressure is applied on the illotibial band, also known as IT band. As Andy Smith elaborates: "the contours in the Elevated Sports foam rollers are designed in such a way that they are able to put optimum pressure on the pain points in the muscles. This deep tissue massage helps in tenderising the muscles which not only releases the formed knots but also prevents forming of future knots in the muscles."
Studies and best practice indicate that foam rolling is not a replacement for proper stretching but an accessory to limit the soreness and tightness in the muscles by increasing the blood flow and a person's flexibility. Both the proper use of foam rollers and effective stretching will help in avoiding injuries as a result of physical exertion.
To conclude, the design of the contours in a foam roller appear to be very important for effective release of muscle tightness. This needs to be considered before making a purchase.
