What is Rollga rolling?
Rollga rolling is a self-myofascial release technique, which is a type of therapy used to eliminate general fascia restrictions. It is commonly used as a warm-up for mobility and/or a cool-down for recovery, although Rollga rolling is for all parts of the day. Research studies indicate that, when foam rolling precedes static stretching, individuals can achieve a deeper stretch because the muscles are warm and more pliable. This technique focuses on reducing pain or the discomfort that comes from the myofascial tissue—the tough, but thin membranes that cover and surround your muscles. This type of movement specifically comes from “Ahh- Spots” in deep areas within the tissue.
Why Rollga Roll?
Rollga rolling is similar to a massage and can provide many benefits for overall muscle health. If you’ve experienced physical trauma, scarring or inflammation, your fascia may have lost some of its elasticity and become tight, restricted and a source of pain. Studies show that SMR can bring about significant reductions in soreness and increased flexibility when used on specific areas twice per week for 5 minutes at a time. Rollga rolling is generally considered safe for all populations, but it’s a good idea to first check with your doctor, particularly if you have any heart or vascular illness or any chronic pain conditions.
Rollga rolling has been shown to be helpful in addressing the following conditions:
- IT band syndrome
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome (runner’s knee)
- Shin splints
- Lower-back pain
- Infrapatellar tendinitis (jumper’s knee)
- Blood flow, overall soreness
- Joint range of motion
Rollga rollers are inexpensive and portable, and ideal for incorporating into your daily lifestyle.
