I almost bought one of the bar rollers which only seems to hit one area at a time and then I saw this product. I've used it on my calves and thighs where I most needed it and I find it works very well. I am about a 155 pound woman, and when I use it on my thighs, I open it up a little so it's not quite as tight. It also works well on my arms. I haven't used it on the hip area yet. It seems to be very well made in my opinion. I believe in the long run it will do more for my sore tight muscles than the bar type roller.
Works Well- perfect amount of pressure on muscles while using. I am a plus sized woman and to bends and opens to accommodate my larger than normal size arms and legs! Was recommended by my physical therapist!! Worth every cent!!
I have let my tight muscles get tighter and tighter for years, yes years. I workout pretty much 5-6 times a week and they are pretty intense workouts. By the time evening rolls around, I feel the stiffness through my legs. It had recently gotten so bad that the soreness was making sleep difficult
This is the second roller I have purchased. The other one was fine. I ordered this one because it covered twice the area. I originally bought it for fascia on my legs but soon found that it also works great on your feet after a long day. I am super happy with this version because I can roll my IT Band. For years I have had problems with my knees, having surgery on both, my orthopedic surgeon kept telling me there wasn’t a reason for my to be in so much pain and my range of motion was horrible. I’m too young for stairs to be this difficult. I started going to a massage therapist to see if that would help, which it did. I realized that my IT Band was super tight and sore. I use this roller and it has helped so much with my movement. The pain has drastically been reduced and my range of motion so much better! Wish I would have s stumbled across this years ago. A fraction of the cost of an appointment with my massage therapist.
I suffer from lymphedema in my legs. I am supposed to be going to a specialist in my area...the problem? The closest specialist is 1.5 hours away! So I purchased this roller to help with pain relief and relief of the swelling in my legs. It is AMAZING!!!!! It works so easily! I fits perfectly around my calves. And it helps so much with the muscle spasms I get through the night! I also use it on my neck for my degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia! It’s perfect for so many things!! Tension headaches.... perfect! Migraines... gone! Arch issues in your feet? Works great! Don’t hesitate to purchase this item... I may buy it in multiple color for different body parts! They are pretty AND effective!!!
