    Poor man's massage / Foam rolling

    I just picked up a foam roller, 3ft long x 6" in diameter. My back and neck have been really tight and somewhat painful at times. People i have talked to swear by these things. But i want some input from my bros.

    Have you used it?
    How often?
    Why did you start using one?
    Overall satisfaction?

    Yes I've used them. I'll roll it on my back(L5-S1 Herniated) and neck(C5-C6 fused) to help relieve tension. I use it as needed. Completely Satisfied

    I'm a big fan of foam rollers. I use them after I workout and hit the muscle groups I have just finished working. I swear this is the best thing in the world for my legs, butt and back.

    Re: Poor man's massage / Foam rolling

    I am a huge fan. I used to foam roll and stretch 3-4 times a week religiously, whole body took me an hour plus to do right. Lately it hasn't been quite as frequent, but I did my session a few mornings ago and felt great afterwards.
