Foam Rolling the Tension Away After Sitting All Day

Working a desk job or spending hours in a seated position shortens your muscles and can leave you feeling stiff and tight. If you're looking for ways to relieve that tension after a long day in front of the screen or behind the wheel, try using a foam roller. 

"It may seem difficult and awkward as first, but the learning curve is quick," said OrthoCarolina's Maria "Zen" Abanilla, PT. "Spend a few minutes on it daily and you'll get the hang of it — and you won't want to stop."

Abanilla gave our friends at Work For Your Beer the low-down on why you should use a foam roller, how to choose the right foam roller for you and how to actually use it. Give it a try — your tired, aching muscles will thank you!
