14. Hydration is Key
You know how after a massage the technician hands you a glass of fancy cucumber water and tells you to hydrate? It’s not just because she thinks you might be thirsty. It’s important to hydrate your muscles after any work, which includes exercise, massage therapy and foam roll treatments.

15. Diagnose Painful Areas
In addition to treating painful muscle tightness, your foam roller can also help you identify other areas that might feel a bit sore or sensitive.  Because you control which areas you want to work on you can use your foam roller for 2 purposes: diagnosis and treatment. Talk about a good investment.
