Foam rolling is a popular term for self-myofascial release (SMR), a self massage technique that targets tight muscles. This technique can be carried out with a foam roller, a softball and even with two tennis balls together in a sock. The great thing about foam rolling is that once you have the tool, you can easily work on releasing tension of several muscle groups, anytime and anywhere. Self-myofascial release is similar to myofascial release, a deep- tissue technique I use myself lot’s in client treatments. Physiotherapists and massage therapists use their hands to press directly on a tight muscle until it releases its tension. When foam rolling, the pressure created by your own body weight helps to release muscle knots. By applying pressure in precise sore locations you are able to aid in the recovery of muscles and assist in returning these muscles to normal function; less tight and ready to get engaged and perform in daily life activities and sports.

Since our rotator cuff, which moves our arm, takes it origin off of the shoulder blade, it is important that the muscles that connect our shoulder blade
to our ribs and upper back are working well. Being strong in this area
reduces the likely hood of sustaining a rotator cuff injury, a shoulder subluxation or dislocation injury or developing impingement syndrome. Below are a set of prehabilitative exercises that should be completed as part of a dynamic warmup prior to doing sports or activities that require overhead movement.
