Still Foam Rolling Your Thigh? | Akridge & Akridge Chiropractic

Foam rolling is often prescribed for Iliotibial band (ITB) pain. However, new research has found a couple of interesting points:

  1. Rolling can sometimes increase sprint performance and flexibility and reduce muscle pain.
  2. The effects of foam rolling on performance and recovery are usually “rather minor.”
  3. The evidence seems to justify the widespread use of foam rolling as a warm-up activity rather than a recovery tool.

In case you want to try foam rolling, check out the attached video. For a more personalized plan on how to boost your athletic performance, call our office today to schedule an appointment. 402-884-4774
