In the last few years, foam rolling has become an integral part of an exercise. It is believed that it is also called myofascial release. Foam rolling is a popular approach in every kind of sport. It increases the efficiency of the training and prepares for competition. Even more so, foam rolling is also observed to speed up the recovery after the exercise.
This foam rolling is even best in physio practices, and all around the world. Moreover, it is used more and more as a treatment to avoid and treat injuries like back pain or ITB syndrome.
But does this foam rolling do as it says?
Foam Rolling is a fascial release. According to Google, foam rolling is regarded as the “application of pressure in order to eliminate scar-tissue and soft tissue adhesion by freeing up the fascia. The good news is fascia and trigger points can be released.”
And, that can be a lot of false claims in one sentence if not proved! So, let us do it one by one.
Fascia is the connective organs that surround the blood vessels, organs, muscles, nerve fibers, bones, and every individual muscle fiber. It has a deep fascia and a superficial fascia. So, when you foam roll, the two layers get compressed against each other. However, this does not seem to release any adhesion or scar tissue between the layers.
Putting pressure on the scar does no good. Any therapist knows that in order to treat the scar, the layers underlying need to be twisted in opposite directions. This helps in getting back the mobility lost in the tissues and getting back to the old self.
