Foam rolling, or self-myofascial release, is a technique used by athletes help break up adhesions and scar tissue to speed up the healing and recovery process after a training session. By rolling out theses knots, blood-flow is increased and muscles can return to their normal function.
At Champion’s QUEST, our athletes foam rolling or use other self-myofascial release techniques both before the start of a workout and also at the conclusion as part of a cool-down to begin the healing process.
