Myofascial Rolling Shown to Increase Flexibility Without Inhibiting Performance
Date:8/6/2013

Akron, OH (PRWEB) August 06, 2013

Two recent studies out of Memorial University of Newfoundland (St. John’s, Canada) support the effectiveness of myofascial rolling. The studies (1),(2) concluded that as little as two minutes of myofascial rolling with foam rollers and a mere five seconds of rolling with a roller massager significantly increased range of motion (ROM) without any significant detrimental effect on muscle strength.

“Decline in muscle strength has been associated with static stretching, which is often used for increasing flexibility and ROM prior to activity. This association discourages some athletes from stretching immediately before an event, which may increase their risk of injury,” stated David G. Behm, PhD, Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Research, Memorial University. “Even though myofascial rolling has become popular because of its purported benefits in recovery after exercise, there was very little research on the effectiveness of the technique. Our first study, completed late last year, demonstrated the efficacy of myofascial rolling using foam rollers, and our second study, completed just last month, demonstrated its efficacy utilizing the Thera-Band® Roller Massager+.”

Although used for many years in physical therapy, foam rollers have recently surged in popularity both in therapy and fitness for myofascial rolling. The rolling pressure applied along a muscle is thought to compress the tissue and increase flexibility of the muscle and fascia, possibly ‘breaking up’ fibrous adhesions between layers of fascia. While myofascial release is usually performed by a therapist on a patient, ‘self-myofascial release’ is widely performed using tools such a
