    I was wondering if you could help me with a question?

    I see from your article that these foam rollers are targeting the back mostly – would I be right in thinking so?

    I run every day, about 6 miles, and I suffer from a condition in my foot called metatarsalgia (too much impact on the foot too often from the road). These foam rollers, do they come in a smaller size? They would be perfect for rolling my injured foot over when the pain in the base occurs.

      Hi, Chris and thank you.

      No, the FOAM Rollers is for the most part of the body. There are not all agree about it, but I hear more and more be agree with me that you should not use it on the lower back.

      Using it in your leg is a great way to use it. I newer quit exercise without my leg, and the FOAM Rollers come together!

      About the sizes, yes, you can get it in smaller sizes.  I wrote an article about a few examples of good FOAM Rollers in small sizes, you can see it here.

      Good luck.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    wow, this was an informative article, although, I have never heard about this kind of foam rollers.

    I do suffer from various joint and muscle pain and living in the country side and having winer soon I am limited to go outside to walk or go to the pool.

    We also do have limited living space and can’t have big equipments staying around.

    So these foam rollers could be a lifesaver.

      Hi, Sylvia and thank you.

      You can put the FOAM Rollers almost everywhere to space is normally not a problem.

      It is a good habit to use it each day. For example after work, in the mornings, etc. And if you are training, you can use it before the train or after. Or both like many do!

      Good luck.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    i’ve actually seen something like this before, only we used to use it as kids to smack each other with haha.

    I can see that if done right, the foam rolling massgaes provide a ton of health benefits.

    Fortunately for me though im still young, I havent experienced any muscle pains yet. Do you still think I would need a foam roller?

      Hi, Lucas and thank you.

      The FOAM Rollers this day is a little bit harder than you played with when you were a child. It is not so hard that it hurt, but to give you a better massage.

      You will get a benefit of using it. People are using it a lot on all ages, younger no less than older. It increases your blood flow, is very good for your muscles and reduce the risk of injuries. Just to mention a few things.

      Good luck.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Interesting! This is new to me. Can pregnant women use it? It would help them in many ways. It’s great that I see your article. I have been doing some work out here and there, but when the sore gets worst, I tend to stop. It’s really good that we have a way to work around the aches.

      Hi, CircleUB and thank you.

      In a case like that, I always recommended asking a doctor. The reason is that you should not take a risk and your bodies are different.

      Too, I always recommend to use it not on the lower back. And when we are talking about pregnant women, I am sure that there are more parts of the bodies where you need to be careful.

      Good luck.

    That’s a wonderful information on foam rollers, I rate it four stars. After the day stress I do become weak and lose lot of strength, I try to take a bath in order to freshen up but I still feel pains all over me, though I am not used to doing exercise always, but I think I will need the firm foam roller when I am ready for work out. 

    Thanks for this nice piece

      Hi, Bibian and thank you.

      It is good you had benefits of the article.

      Actually,  I believe you would have a benefit of using it, even so, you are exercises at the moment. 

      For example in better blood flow and to improve your movement.
