So what is a 3D Trigger Point Roller?
Unlike a traditional foam roller, the surface varies in density meaning you can easily adjust the intensity you need by changing which part of it you use depending on how sore or tight you are.
Because the surface isn’t flat like a traditional foam roller, it allows for blood and oxygen to channel through the muscle helping to create change in the tissue.
Basically, trigger points are the sore or tight spots in your body and indicate places where tension or stress is being stored by the tissues in your body.
These trigger points limit how much the tissue can stretch, contract and move – in effect, they restrict proper movement of your muscles and joints.
They reduce how much power you can produce and make you more inefficient (ie, slower).
This can ultimately lead to discomfort and pain, create changes in your posture, movement patterns and even injury.
But by using a foam roller, you can release those trigger points, decreasing the pain and discomfort associated with them and restoring proper and free movement of the tissue.
These Foam Rollers are ideal for Stretching, Myofascial Release of larger body areas and Pilates exercises.
Foam rolling is a self-myofascial release (SMR) technique that is used by athletes and physical therapists to inhibit overactive muscles. This form of stretching utilizes the concept of autogenic inhibition to improve soft tissue extensibility, thus relaxing the muscle and allowing the activation of the antagonist muscle. It is accomplished by rolling the foam roller under each muscle group until a tender area is found, and maintaining pressure on the tender area for 30-60 seconds.
It is fairly well accepted that muscles need to not only be strong, but pliable as well. Regardless of whether you're a bodybuilder, strength athlete, or weekend warrior, it's important to have strength and optimal function through a full range of motion. While stretching will improve the length of the muscle, Self-Myofascial Release and massage work to adjust the tone of the muscle.
Traditional stretching techniques simply cause transient increases in muscle length. Self-Myofascial Release on the foam roller, on the other hand, offers these benefits and breakdown of soft tissue adhesions and scar tissue.
Self-Myofascial Release on the foam roller offers an effective, inexpensive, and convenient way to both reduce adhesion and scar tissue accumulation and eliminate what's already present on a daily basis. Just note that like stretching, foam rolling doesn't yield marked improvements overnight; you'll need to be diligent and stick with it.
