Does A Vibrating Foam Roller Reduce The Risk Of Injury?


Looking for ways to increase your flexibility and reduce the risk of injury?

Including a vibrating roller into your exercise routine is a highly useful tool in reducing muscle stiffness and unlocking greater levels of flexibility when regularly used.

So how does flexibility reduce the risk of injury?

Increasing your body’s range of movement plays a key role in preventing injury.

Try thinking of your muscles like an elastic band. If the elastic band is left unused, it becomes brittle and when stretched in a dynamic situation, the band will snap. This situation is like injuries that occur when a person with poor flexibility is in an uncontrolled environment like sport.

However, if the elastic band is regularly stretched and maintained, it will stretch further to new movements without damage. This applies to muscles that are regularly stretched and maintained. When in an uncontrolled environment, the muscles will adapt to the movement without sustaining injury.

Now that you understand the importance of flexibility in your muscles,

where can you use a Vibrating roller?

A Vibrating roller can be used on most of your body’s muscle groups including your:

  • Forearms
  • Lats
  • Pectorals
  • Upper back
  • Mid back
  • Lower back
  • Glutes
  • Hips
  • Hamstrings
  • Quadriceps
  • Calves
  • Foot Arch

Why does it Vibrate?

Now that we know how to use a roller, what’s the point of the vibrating?

Although traditional foam rollers have been around for a long time, vibration is more of a recent addition.

Since the incorporation of vibration, many studies have been conducted and concluded that the added vibration in foam rollers increases

  • Range of Motion,
  • Blood flow,
  • Flexibility,
  • Muscle soreness relief,

up to 2x more than what a traditional foam roller can achieve!

When should you use a vibrating roller? 

To achieve the greatest benefits from a vibrating roller, you should incorporate it into your daily routine. This is known as Precovery, which is the practice of daily self-treatment which assists in preventing injury and reducing soreness. 

Precovery is far better than recovery. Just like prevention is better than the cure!

Adopt a Precovery mindset to take proactive steps to prevent injuries from occurring and perform at a greater level.
