Elevated Sports In The News - Not All Foam Rollers Created The Same
How To Choose A Foam Roller
At its very essence, a Foam Roller is a device that allows users to give themselves a massage - with the depth/intensity, duration, location and consistency definable by themselves. Massages achieve results through a process known as myofascial release. This technique is a type of soft tissue therapy previously only used by athletes and recommended by physical therapists. During vigorous physical activity, as muscle functionality is impaired in a process called somatic dysfunction, which is the main cause of the random pain in muscles after a workout - foam rollers eliminate or soothe this pain by inducing relaxation in the affected muscles. They also enhance blood flow to the muscles and drain the lymphatic fluid.
With the capacity to enhance athletic performance; foam rollers can stimulate the functioning of reflexes where skeletal muscles have a soft tissue covering known as fascia - which when overworked - the net result being pain and inhibited athletic performance. A foam roller can help in reducing inflammation of the fascia after a workout, thus restoring muscles to their previous state. Today, foam rollers have not only found an application by athletes, they are also used by individuals participating in any form of physical activity, as well as/and commonly incorporated in pilates and yoga routines. Foam rollers stimulate the lengthening of skeletal muscle, this improves flexibility, thus facilitating yoga poses and pilates activity.
With that said, Andy Smith advises that there has recently been an influx of foam rollers on the market that may look genuine, however, are manufactured using poorer quality materials that quickly cause the roller to lose shape over time or even involve the pvc 'core' cracking and breaking. Samples have also been discovered to contain dangerous chemicals like phthalates. Checking reviews of legitimate previous purchases may be the best first step in carrying out due diligence. And as consciously selected by Elevated Sports, Amazon provides this most fundamental facility.
