In desperate need of a release? Foam rolling isn't just for athletes. If you sit for extended periods of time during the day, you might be developing knots in your muscles that stay contracted all day. These knots (or adhesions) limit the range of motion of your joints and muscles, which also decreases circulation. Foam rolling puts pressure on these knots and aids in releasing the myofascial layer. With the aid of SMR, the tension can finally dissipate- allowing your muscles to return to an optimal lengthened state.
