4. Don’t Ditch the Stretch
Foam rolling is an amazing way to ease sore muscles and work through muscle and joint pain, but it is NOT a substitute for stretching. A foam roller might help your muscles recover, but proper stretching helps keep your muscles healthy and limber so you’re less likely to injure them later.

5. Results are in Your Own Hands
By giving you the power to control the location and intensity of the pressure, it can be more efficient than having someone else treat you.

6. Help Restore Normal Function
Breaking up the knots or releasing the trigger points of pain can help restore normal movement and functioning to your muscles. What’s normal? Clearly we’re all in different shape and “normal” looks different on every body, but generally speaking normal means you can move easily and painlessly.
