The benefits of foam rolling are many. Adhesions occur when muscle fibers "stick" to muscle fascia—a sheath of connective tissue that surrounds the muscles—resulting in a knot of tissue that limits the circulation of blood, nutrients, and the elimination of waste, and can lead to pain and injury. When you use a roller to roll along the length of your muscle, you're helping loosen and release these "sticky points," enabling your muscles to return to their original and intended length.
Foam rolling is a fairly simple undertaking, but just because an activity is simple, that doesn't mean you shouldn't undergo formal instruction to learn the skill.
