Champaign, Ill. (WCIA)
Marcia Stevens, owner Champaign Fitness Center, brings foam rollers to share exactly what they are used for
and how to use them!
It’s like a sports massage! All major muscle groups can be self-massaged. There are many different purposes for which they are used.
–Can be used pre-workout to loosen muscles and increase blood flow to the muscles
–Can be used post-workout to regain elasticity and help prevent soreness
–Can be used to help rehab strains and over-use injuries and even help prevent those same injuries
–Can be used to reduce pain due to inactivity like sitting at a desk too long
