Foam Roller Techniques - Copyright – Stock Photo / Register Mark Get Educated on the Benefits of Foam Roller Massage!

This book will teach you the essential techniques of self-massage and stretching using the foam roller. Foam Roller Techniques is a helpful guide that contains instructions and clear exercise photos, plus anatomy illustrations for each muscle group. Massage treats both myofascial trigger points and mobilizes soft tissue. Similarly, it is successful in detecting when muscles are beginning to tighten.

Chapter Content Includes:

  • Introduction
  • Upper and Lower Neck
  • Posterior & Lateral Shoulder
  • Upper and Lower Back
  • Chest
  • Abdominals
  • Upper and Lower Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Upper and Lower Legs
  • Feet

This softcover text is fully illustrated and is 47 pages in length. Foam Roller Techniques provides promising exercises and stretches, which are effective and easy-to-follow. Variations of individual exercises are followed by one or two stretches. The Uses of Foam Rollers are Limitless

Michael Fredericson, MD, Terri Lyn Yamamoto, Ph.D., and Mark Fadil, CMT are the three educated and experienced authors who have created the Foam Roller Techniques masterpiece. Not only do they have the knowledge to create a superior text, but also their familiarity or understanding of muscle anatomy is highlighted through the variety of exercises and stretches detailed.

Performing These Exercises on a Regular Basis Will Help to:

  • increase flexibility
  • reduce muscle tension and pain
  • improve performance.

Foam roller massage is comparable to deep tissue massage, myofascial release, and myofascial trigger point therapy.
