What is a foam roller and how can it help to reduce soreness and pain?
A foam roller is a large cylinder-shaped object that is made of high-density foam. It’s a type of self-massage used to release trigger points or relieve muscle tightness. Foam rolling can be used as a “mobile massage therapist” to relieve everyday aches and pains, including chronic conditions.
What are the Benefits?
The Temagami FHT will be launching a 6-week Foam Roller Workshop. From your head, neck and shoulders to your feet, in this workshop you’ll learn simple movements and variations tailored to your specific condition(s) or recovery. These skills will empower you to a new level of self-care.
These free classes are available to rostered patients of the Temagami Family Health Team.
