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

s Thera-Band® foam rollers and the Roller Massager+.

The first Memorial University study, conducted by Dr. Behm, Dr. Duane C. Button and colleagues, found a significant (10° to 20°) increase in knee range of motion after rolling the quadriceps for only two minutes. In addition, the participants did not experience a decrease in knee strength or muscle activation with the increased range of motion, often seen immediately after static stretching. This study was published in Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.

In the second study, the Memorial University research team wanted to determine if similar results were possible using the Thera-Band Roller Massager+. All study participants were measured for hamstring flexibility (sit-and-reach test), maximal strength, and muscle activation before and after the intervention. The researchers reported a significant increase in hamstring flexibility (4.3%) after only five seconds of rolling. After 10 seconds, there was a 6.6% increase in flexibility, although not statistically greater than at ten seconds. There was no advantage to performing multiple sets of rolling. As expected, there were no changes in hamstring muscle performance after the rolling intervention.

“We are very pleased that our second study further substantiated the benefits of myofascial rolling and demonstrated the effectiveness of the Thera-Band Roller Massager+, an inexpensive and readily accessible tool,” stated Duane C. Button, PhD, Assistant professor, Memorial University. “With just seconds of use, the Roller Massager+ provided statistically significant increases in ROM without any significant effect on muscle strength. This should prove to be beneficial as part of an immediate warm-up prior to an athletic event.”
