Here is a list of some of the muscles that you can foam roll if you are experiencing tightness/soreness:
When foam rolling, roll over the targeted muscle until you find spots that are sore or tender. Then spend 1-2 minutes on these spots gently rolling back and forth until the tenderness reduces. Doing this in the morning is an ideal time because muscles get stiff from being in one or two positions during sleep. Incorporating it into your morning routine will set you up for success during the day! Please contact Atlas Physical Therapy at Central Park, Congress Park, or Downtown Denver today with any questions!
