Myofascial release MFR, self-myofascial release is an alternative medicine therapy claimed to be useful for treating skeletal muscle immobility and pain by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood, oxygen, and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles.
How to Foam Roll for Back Pain
Purpose Self-myofascial release SMR using a foam roller is a popular intervention used to improve flexibility and restore skeletal muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and soft-tissue extensibility. However, the mechanism about the effects of SMR on flexibility, delayed onset of muscle soreness and arterial stiffness has not been elucidated. The purpose of this review is to provide basic knowledge for the mechanism about the effects of SMR from a functional and anatomical perspective. Methods In this review, we summarized previous studies investigating the effects of SMR which were associated with the human fascial system on flexibility, delayed onset of muscle soreness, arterial stiffness and autonomic nervous system ANS. Results SMR with a foam roller can improve flexibility by increasing blood flow and circulation to the soft tissues. In addition, SMR with a foam roller may improve arterial stiffness, which was associated with increased circulating level of nitric oxide induced by elevated shear stress on the walls of the blood vessel. Conclusions SMR using a foam roller improves flexibility by relaxing tension in skeletal muscles or fascia and may help to improve arterial stiffness and the function of the ANS.

The Science of Self-Myofascial Release
Login Join Now Close. Approximately 15 years ago a new trend emerged in the fitness industry known as self-myofascial release aka foam rolling. Self-myofascial release is a form of self-massage used to increase flexibility and enhance recovery following physical activity.
Depending on the nature of the discomfort, foam rolling may be worth trying. This approach relies on a technique called self-myofascial release SMR to work on fascia , the connective tissue that encases muscles, muscle fibers, and the entire musculoskeletal system. Fascia can become stiff, restricting your range of motion and causing muscle soreness.
