Breaking Down Scar Tissue
I have just bought one of the foam rollers with bobbles on it to help breakdown some scar tissue I have in one thigh. As I have read … it certainly is painful – I have only used it once and rolled slowly not only over the effected area but the whole of the thigh (I used the roller all over my legs, t-bands, calfs, etc). I guessed I only rolled my thighs/quads for about three minutes as it was quite painful and now, after the session, my thigh feels mildly painful so I feel I certainly effected the area (breaking down the scar tissue). I would like some advice on how long, in any one area (say the thighs), one should 'roll' and the frequency, e.g. once or twice a day or once/twice a week. Any advice appreciated.
