The Best Foam Roller Invention of 2018 and Why Foam Rolling Daily Is Vitally Important To Overall Health
Approaching an effective foam rolling routine looks easy, but achieving an effective systematic approach can be overwhelming at first. Whether you feel foam rolling is either effective or a waste of time, the evidence shows that foam rolling has become one of the most effective ways to recover from a tough workout, acute/chronic injury, years of body abuse, a stressful day and even cold related congestion.

Your back pain would really appreciate some TLC.
Our ideas, methods and science is based on the Stretch Therapy program out of Dallas, Tx. The Stretch Therapy session Sunday (08/05/18) focused on a few areas that clients complained about. The first focus was low back (sacral area), IT-band and finally focused on the scapular area of the upper back. At the end of the session all members achieved more flexibility and simply felt more relaxed. Did they purchase Rx pills or take an expensive concoction to relieve their stress induced pain? No! we smartly approached a very effective stretching and foam rolling session that released tons of locked up endorphins that aid in the healing metabolism of muscle, joints and bone.

and musculoskeletal complaints account for roughly 60% of all doctor related visits of that 50%.
Common treatments for acute to chronic pain include narcotics, steroid, simulators and NSAID’s.
If those treatments are not effective then the next step is a surgical procedure. If those procedures do
not take care of the chronic pain then most medical professionals simply stop taking you seriously.
therapies like CBD, acupuncture, chiropractic spinal adjustments, other natural pain and
inflammation remedies similar to cannabis. Ironically, Western Medicine is actually considered the
“alternative medicine” when compared to Chinese, Hindu and African methods. As a 10 year veteran
paramedic I can honestly admit the the opioid addiction crisis is real. Western Medical treatments that

your experiences been interacting with medical professionals as it relates to managing your acute or
chronic inflammatory conditions? Simply stated, Western Medical practices are all running out of tricks

* on a side note, years back I had a chronic shoulder issue that kept me from being able to put my
shirt on in the morning. The Sport Medical Doctor prescribed me Vioxx. Vioxx was proven to
show an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Vioxx is now banned.

Using Two Foam Rollers Improves Outcome
- Isolate the targeted muscle or muscle group.
- Changing the angle changes the overall feel and depth of your targeted layers of that muscle group.
- It feels smoother and your experience feels less impacted by friction or ground related elements that take away from the self-massage.
- You will loosen up the targeted area faster with two rollers.
- Take pressure off of unnecessary or non-targeted joints so you can achieve a true relaxation of the targeted area.
- Extreme endorphin release
- Transitioning is easier from one position to another. ie. if you want to add in a stretch, you are better able to adjust the angle of your positioning to achieve a deeper more effective stretch.
- It simply feels more natural to utilize the two roller approach.
