Do you spend any time with a foam roller? This editor took a foam rolling class and this is what she learned:

"He explains that foam rolling is a form of self-myofascial release, "which is basically a form of self-massage." Fascia is the thin tissue that connects our muscles—kind of like the glue that holds the insides of our body together. Just like a massage, foam rolling helps break up knots in this tissue and release tension.

There's a decent amount of research out there on self-myofascial release that suggests it has positive effects ranging from increased flexibility to enhanced recovery. But the benefits of using a foam roller specifically for this purpose have only recently begun to be studied. So far, studies suggest that it can help increase range of motion and decrease muscle soreness after an intense bout of exercise, but the research is still very limited."
