Foam Roller Tips and Exercises – These can be done almost anywhere. All you need is foam roller and a hard surface. The technique that I’m performing with the foam roller is called Myofascial release, which is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat somatic dysfunction and accompanying pain and restriction of motion.

    never knew about this technique, thank you!

  2. @gagacorpse89 You need to consult a physical therapist. Its possible you have a muscle tear or strain, in that case you would not use the foam roller. Does that help?

    I have a dislocated hip, causing very tight muscles in my hips, thighs and back. this has been a huge help! My question is, its VERY painful on my muscles on the affected side. Should I be holding on those areas even when its that painful?

    Thank you thank you!

    Thank you so much for this video! My glutes, it band and hip flexors are so very tight and sore from running a lot and even though I’ve had (and used) a foam roller for over a year, I’ve never used it on my hip flexors or it band until seeing this video. Ahhh, relief!!! Thank you!

  6. I have the same roller. It’s the best thing I ever bought to stretch out at home. I like your demonstration, too. Simple positions that are easy to copy.

    @ELH06 because it’s not a focused stretch (meaning your not stretching a singular muscle with maximal intensity and focus). The stretch he did, with the foam roller in line with his spine, it doesn’t stretch a particular muscle, rather it stretches multiple together, meaning you can focus the stretch for longer without tearing or injuring yourself.

    @djianthomas The lower back can be rolled, but I would suggest a thinner foam roller and softer. This roller to too big for the lower back.

    Can the lower back be rolled..?

    @ELH06 PNF is a 30 second static stretch, after which you contract against resistance for roughly 6 seconds (breathing throughout) and after the ~ 6 secs you relax and take the stretch to the next barrier.

  12. brockadile6 says:

    @ELH06 I agree that a minute is excessive, and very unnecessary. However static and PNF are very different stretching techniques and is like comparing apples to oranges. A static stretch should be done post cool down for 30 seconds. This has been well researched and is the accepted time to promote the most effective change in muscle resting length.

  13. brockadile6 says:

    @nightguy99 Try using a less dense foam, like a grade 3, that should provide an adequate amount of cushion for the exercise. Also, make sure you are doing these exercises with a foam roller AFTER your warm-up. Very important. You don’t static stretch a cold muscle, so don’t roll one either!

  14. nightguy99 says:

    I use this roller on my IT band. After one session my legs is so soar.
    Should I continue to do this everyday? Or should I wait until the leg becomes less soar?

  15. can you explain why you hold the stretch for a minute? its advised not to hold the a static or pnf stretch for no longer than 15 seconds why is this differenT?
