Oh, I use them at the gym and I love the exercises I can do, such as stretching my back.

I have been using a foam roller for many years. I have found it to be really helpful when it does come to muscle recovery.
Have you been using the same roller for years ? If so, you probably need a new roller. Foam rollers do get soft with time and lose their stiffness. You might consider buying a new one. You'll feel a difference if you do.
Also, you might consider going to something like a PVC pipe. I've been using that more than the foam roller I have. And well, for the masochists, there is always the tennis ball or the small rubber ball. That's not for the faint hearted. Those two will really dig into the muscle fiber.
