Thanks Report
I have a foam roller and don't use it. Hit home when she mentioned "if it hurts, you need to use it more often." I am a ball of knots. Report

I have a smooth one and a bumpy one. They work wonders! I saw a physical therapist a few years ago and he said it would loosen my leg IT-bands and it did. I use the foam rollers every day along with my stretching routine. Helps with tight muscles- loosen them up. Report
I have one and love it. Helps with my knees and hips. Report

Thanks, I have seen them at a military base fitness center and on the store shelves but didn't understand their use until now. I don't think I am ready to purchase one yet. Report
