When you roll on a conventional foam roller, a compressive force is generated. The amount of compression depends on the size of the contact patch between the roller and your skin. For a typical 6" diameter foam roller, that contact patch is large, so the amount of compression is small and the effect on deeper tissues is very limited.
To counter this limitation, athletes often progress to smaller and harder rollers, or even PVC pipe. A downside of that approach is that smooth, hard rollers don't conform to the shape of your body. While they may have the intended effect in some areas, they don't work well around bony areas - e.g. your pelvis, spine, and scapula.Shop Now
If you're like most athletes, your muscular tightness is beyond what a conventional foam roller can cure. Using harder rollers or PVC pipe isn't enough, because their inflexible surfaces don't work well around bones nor get close enough to muscle attachments. You need more advanced tools that go deeper into the muscle to confront the origin of your pain.
