Foam Rolling – Do we really understand what is happening?

Foam Rolling

Below is a link to a very interesting article about foam rolling and the possible reasons as to why it works.  It is a break from traditional thinking about fascia and releasing it. The stimulation of the nervous system is very plausible – please see the video below (taken from the blog itself).  This view about descending pain control inhibition fits nicely with our post last week about Acupuncture and how it works.  You can find that on our Facebook and Google + pages if you have not seen it yet.

Have  watch and read the article and let us know your thoughts.

Thank you for reading,
