Foam rolling is a great way to warm up before exercise, but it will never remove adhesion.
I am a big fan of foam rolling as a warm up. It will warm up the tissue and prepare it for exercise. However, I would never use a foam roll as a method of relieving pain. If you are experiencing pain, you should be evaluated by a professional. Most likely you have adhesion build up in your muscles. Adhesions can alter the way the joint moves which leads to pain. You can think of it as pouring glue into a muscle. The muscle won’t stretch or contract like it should. The only way to get rid of adhesion is through treatment from a certified provider specializing in MAR, and IAR, and ART.
