Foam Rolling for Neck, Back, & Knee Pain (as seen on NBC News Better)

Foam rollers are the hot ticket item right now. They can help you break up the knots that form in your tissue, which leaves you with a higher range of motion and a lower level of muscle soreness. As a health and fitness trainer in Chicago, I get asked all the time about how to properly use these life changing tools! 

Foam rolling isn’t just for your back! I tell my private weight loss clients to also use a foam roller on their glutes, quads, and on the backs of their shoulders. This just further helps to get rid of those tight muscles! I also let my clients know that it’s very beneficial to their bodies after a workout, but it’s fantastic for your muscles every day. It doesn’t have to be for a long period of time – even just 10-15 minutes will do the trick! 

One of the biggest secrets to foam rolling is that consistency is key. The more often you do this in your daily routine, the better your results are going to be. Studies have found that even as little as three days of foam rolling can make a difference on your muscle fatigue!
