Massage therapy has many benefits including alleviating muscle soreness and reduces swelling. Damage occurs to the muscle while working out and massage helps facilitate a quicker recovery. This allows for less time you are sore. Massage is also effective in increasing range of motion as well as increasing exercise performance overall.
A foam roller is a great tool to help increase range of motion and speed up recovery by reducing pain and tenderness. While stretching is always recommended, a foam roller can address trigger points and focus in on more specific knots. Since these types of issues respond to direct pressure, a foam roller is ideal if you are in between massage appointments. A foam roller can be used daily and is a quick and easy addition to your workout regimen. Check out some simple ways you can add a foam roller into your daily routine.
