Foam roller exercises are an easy way to help limit and decrease tissue tightness and tissue restrictions. IT Bands are an area that we commonly hear about. The IT band is a fascial tissue that extends down the side the the thigh connecting a muscle in the hip to the knee area. Because of the size of the fascial tissue, the IT Band is an area that can often be an area that contributes to discomfort in the legs. Tightness in the IT Bands can affect the hips, knees, and lower back among other areas of the body. Using a foam roller is a common and easy way to help minimize the likelihood of having the IT Bands cause you pain.
