We're going to go over the following points together:
- The use of a foam roller can provide less stiffness but it does not loosen anything. There are certain sensors in muscle tissue that are activated by pressure and thus create relaxation in the central nervous system.
- Foam rolling will not make you stronger, more limber or less likely to get injured.
- In addition to using a foam roller, it is also wise to use other recovery methods.
