I purchased a foam roller to do myfascial release on myself and it was one of the best investment I ever made. I love the gains I have been able to make in softening the fascia in order to increase my flexibility.
I was wondering... I know the foam roller is good for softeneing the myofascia, but can I (and if so, how) use the roller to lengthen the muscles of my body --especially my back mucles (lower and upper). I feel like if my back muscles were aggressively stretched, as in put in traction, I would literally grow another 2" in length - I feel very compressed between my hips and my neck.
Please PM me or write back - will really appreciate the help.
