Why did it take me so long to own one?!
on 4 July 2013
I decided to buy this quintessential kit for physiotherapy after researching 'night splint' on the web. I had surgery on my foot over a year ago and have suffered from tightened calf muscles and ligaments in this area since then. I sleep with a night splint to keep my calf muscle in tension and foam roller exercise was recommended to assist in loosening up the calf.
Since I began using the roller I have noticed a marked improvement in my calf tone, the foam roller is quite firm to touch and does keep its form to a degree with most of my body weight resting on it. Obviously one would expect that it will give little since it's constructed from foam. It's quite a versatile tool and there's a multitude of exercises that can be performed with it; if you are not sure what you can do with it a quick web search will sort that out.
I decided to go with the 15cm x 90cm unit as I was made to understand that you can do more with a longer roller than a short one.
This is one essential kit anyone into sports and recreation should have to hand.
