Customer reviewsSurprisingly effectve.
I do a lot of computer work and my shoulder blades and lower back often get sore from that kind of desk work. Someone recommended that I try a foam roller. I was a bit skeptical but ordered one anyway especially after reading so many positive reviews. After using one for a couple weeks, I have to admit that it does help relieve my shoulder back aches. Its simple albiet a bit awkward to use. You use your body weight against the roller on the floor and pause in the areas that are sore. It can hurt a bit as you press against the trouble areas, but the soreness is usually gone shortly after I use it and I feel good relief the next day or so. It s not a miracle cure but it does give me an alternative to Advil and other treatments for a sore back.
