Regardless if you’re an athlete or simply looking for a safe form of physical therapy, our Foam Rolling Therapy at Synergy Sports Wellness Institute is designed to provide a broad spectrum of health benefits. Our providers are firm believers in the capability of this treatment and our patients enjoy that it doesn’t require an extensive or invasive process to deliver immediate results. In the following, we’ll explain how Foam Rolling Therapy works and who can benefit from it.

The connective tissue that surrounds your muscles, bones, nerves and organs is largely responsible for holding you together. It’s one of the most important, but often neglected systems of the body. Much of the potential damage can occur unintentionally. Consistent stress and movement may cause pain, joint restriction, and prevent healthy muscle mechanics.

How Foam Rolling Therapy works

When the body is placed under consistent stress and strain, areas of knotted connective tissue or “trigger points” develop around muscles. They’re very painful and often affect other regions of the body that are connected by tissue. A common trigger point is the trapezius muscle that can cause neck or upper back discomfort and persistent headaches. Other types of muscle strain can occur during periods of physical exertion as well as bad posture.

Foam rolling is a type of myofascial release therapy that decreases this type of significant muscle tension. Before the therapy sessions begins, our licensed providers at Synergy Sports Wellness Institutewill complete a full diagnostic exam that will locate your specific trigger points and areas of concern.

The Benefits of Foam Rolling Therapy

Both athletes and nonathletes can enjoy the benefits of Foam Rolling Therapy. Even day-to-day stressors like prolonged sitting or standing can do damage to the body. People who undergo a treatment session can feel near-instant relief as their deep muscle tissue is loosened and smoothed. Foam Rolling can provide the following benefits:

  • Improved range of motion
  • Reduced muscle fatigue
  • Quicken recovery
  • Ease muscle tension
