Mostly we'll grab it when we have some ache or pain to try and "roll it out" so that, hopefully it makes it feel better. So what really is the purpose of the foam rollers? There are many types, and they all serve the same general purpouse, that purpose is to act as a massage agent on an inflamed, tight, or troublesome area.
