A foam roller is an essential tool for decreasing back pain and getting those knots out of your back from sitting all day.
There is a right way and wrong way to foam roll. If fact, if you do it the wrong way you could be making your back even worse. Which I will cover below.
The foam roller I’m using is the Trigger Point Grid Foam Roller.
At first I thought this foam roller was too hard, but eventually I got used to it. After using for months I don’t even notice it.
When I take a break from the computer and my upper back feels tight, I’ll just roll for a few minutes. It feels great.
Before getting a foam roller you should know what not to do.
As explained in the video you should not use a foam roller on your lower back because there’s nothing supporting that area.
After watching the video I don’t do the lower back foam roll anymore.
What the foam roller does is it will increase bloodflow to and untighten any muscles you may have. If you workout a lot a foam roller is an essential piece of equipment.
Can it fix my bad posture?
Yes, it can. If you foam roll enough you will loosen up those muscles and combined with other exercises you can get your posture back in a more confident position.
The other two can be solved by stretching and working out the correct muscle groups.
