The Rumble Roller
Physical therapists, trainers, and athletes use foam rollers to relieve muscular pain and tightness (often called “”adhesions””, “”knots””, or “”trigger points””). The RumbleRoller was created to perform this therapy more effectively. Looking like something that you might find in a medieval dungeon, the surface of the RumbleRoller contains specially designed bumps that are firm, but flexible, much like the thumbs of a massage therapist. By design, the RumbleRoller’s bumps are firmer than muscle tissue, but much softer than bone, so they deflect out of the way if they contact your spine or other bony protrusions.
Using the Rumble Roller
As you roll over the top of the RumbleRoller, the bumps continuously knead the contours of your body, stretching soft tissue (muscle and fascia) in multiple directions. This action erodes trigger points, helps restore flexibility, and brings quick relief to common types of muscular pain. As you Hit these “Trigger Points” you will experience pain, this is your body’s way of letting you know that you have found a spot that needs your attention, hang out on this spot and knead the area til the pain subsides and then move on.
Pain is weakness leaving the body…
