C|Net: The Best Foam Rollers for Muscle Soreness and Stiffness, According to Pros

With over 58,000 incoming links, an Alexa global ranking of 164 worldwide, and publication in seven languages, C|Net is one of the leading voices on the web when it comes to all things tech related. Their About page reads:

"CNET tells you what's new in tech, culture and science, why it matters, how it works and what you need.

Our global team works 24/7 to explore and explain the changing world around us. You can depend on CNET for news, commentary, analysis, features, FAQs, advice, hands-on reviews, buying guides, amazing photography and fun and informative videos."

In this recent article they venture away from the tech world and into the land of foam rollers for yoga and targeted stretching. Of course when they went looking for authoritative voices, they tapped Heather Jeffcoat for her expert opinion:

Whether you want relief from post-workout soreness or general tension, these are the rollers to try.

foam rollerThe OPTP Pro-Roller is a softer roller that measures 36 inches in length. Although this roller takes up more space because it's so long, you can do a lot more with it -- like lie on it to help release your spine and roll both of your legs easily at the same time. 

This roller is soft but still supportive. Many foam rollers are too hard for my patients that have chronic pain. This version allows them to get a comfortable postural stretch and later transition to release work on the same roller without all the direct pain a firm roller can cause." -- Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, physical therapist and founder of Fusion Wellness PT.

What They Say About Us

  • Testimonials

    • Testimonial by T.C.

      While pregnant with my twins, Heather took care with keeping me on my feet and pain free. She saved my back, my sanity and the holidays! I would recommend her to every “mom” looking to stay on her feet during pregnancy and post-partum. -- T.C.

  • Testimonials

    • Testimonial by Jackie W.

      I was in multiple car accidents a decade ago, and I have been to many physical therapists through the years without success. They found the root of my lower back pain problems and after nearly a decade of barely being able to walk I finally can again without pain. They are also the best pelvic floor pts and the only ones who found the connection between my pelvic floor and lower back problems. If you need help with physical pain, they are your answer. -- Jackie W., 1/19/17 via Yelp!
