How to Foam Roll

General Instruction

This is a general guideline for healthy individuals to be done as directed by their therapist.

  • Begin by rolling a larger muscle group.
  • Find a tender spot, keep the roller on that spot until the discomfort diminishes by 50%. This can take some time and be uncomfortable.
  • Go back to rolling over the larger muscle group, where the "spot" may have been at. You will notice that it's no longer sensitive.
  • Move on to other regions of the body
