OptimizePMD: How to Use a Foam Roller

Facebook Live Recap | OptimizePMD

Readily available and relatively inexpensive, a foam roller can take the place of stretching to relieve muscle aches and pains, reduce tension, and improve recovery. Based in our Midlothian office, health coach Jaime Monsen demonstrates proper technique using the foam roller to relax seven areas where we commonly experience tension. 

  1. Back
  2. Glutes
  3. IT Bands
  4. Hamstrings
  5. Quadriceps
  6. Calf 
  7. Perineal (the little muscles that run alongside the calf)
