Exercise prescription is a critical part of any physical/physiotherapy program. When heavy exercise equipment may be too much to handle for a patient recovering strength/muscle tone or are simply not available, foam rollers become an extremely valuable piece of the instrument in exercise and rehabilitation programs. This simplistic yet highly useful equipment can be used for a wide range of different purposes and training exercises and they can have many different positive effects on the body. Foam rollers are used to aid in rehabilitation for different physical ailments as well as to improve an athlete's performance. They are inexpensive, flexible, easy to use, and ever reliable tools that you can use even at home.
