Is Foam Roller as Good as Massage?
Lets consider what exactly foam rolling does for our bodies. Foam rolling has been shown to:
- relax the body
- improve range of motion

I agree that allowing your muscles to be supported and pressed into simulataneously via foam roller lends to a better release than static stretching.
