In the past, foam roller massage exercises were for elite athletes. Now the rollers are being touted for everyone, and every sports store carries them.
Foam rollers fall into that area of fitness known as recovery — an area that unfortunately is too often ignored by trainers and athletes alike.
Think of this bottom line: Consistent use of foam rollers will help you get well faster if you have an issue and keep you healthy longer. They also improve blood circulation in the skin, give you better spine mobility and lengthen tight muscles.
