A full-color, step-by-step guide to get fit, prevent injury and end pain using your foam roller

Foam rolling is not just a fad; if you're active in sport or work out regularly, you know how crucial it is to keep your muscles limber and pain-free to stay active and mobile. As a form of Myofascial Release Therapy, foam rolling is an effective technique for unlocking your tight muscles and restrictive myofascial connective tissue. Foam rolling helps increase your overall body mobility and joint range of motion, decreases pain and shortens recovery times--and it generally supercharges your body to reap the benefits of your active lifestyle

Written in an easy-to-follow, no-jargon style by NFL physical therapist and trainer for 26 years Mike Ryan, Foam Rolling For Dummies shares proven roller tips usually reserved for professional athletes to help you quickly restore healthy harmony between your muscles and joints. Once you know the science behind foam rolling, you'll understand how to use specific body-rolling techniques to address specific problems and goals, whether they're eliminating painful muscle trigger points, loosening tight fascia, improving body flexibility, or just relaxing muscles faster after a workout.
