Mobility and Foam Rolling

In case you did not know, aside from a coach I am a corrective massage therapist focusing on soft tissue injury intervention and rehabilitation.  This is a great basic article on foam rolling to describe the physiological effects and purpose behind it.  You can and should foam roll just about any part of your body, including your low back. A general rule of thumb is to focus on the area that you are working that day before and after you workout.  Think of it as a form of self massage.  It helps to flush out toxic fluids and encourages healthy blood flow.  We will be scheduling a regular weekly mobility class that will include (among other things), how to foam roll.  In the  meantime, if you ever have any questions on the what or how, please stop and ask me or send me a FB message.  Happy rolling!!!
