Foam Roller for Back Pain

Posted by:  Kevin G. Parker, D.C.

This post should have been called Foam Roller for Health!

There are many other videos on you tube to learn from:  “Self Foam Rolling/ Self Myofascial Release techniques ” for various body parts.

Think of Foam Rolling as the “brushing and flossing” for your body. (muscles, joints, ligaments, Fascia, bones, soft tissues)

One could think of the foam roller as a giant rolling pin… and you are rolling out the “kinks, knotts, adhesions, fixations” in your body.

And it’s Free.  (After you buy a foam roller that is…) Many fitness places and internet sites sell foam rollers.

Average price for the basic white ones are 20.00.

There are fancier versions and harder density versions that cost more.
