Rolling out muscles daily with a good foam roller helps relieve and prevent pain. Just as a massage would, rolling releases fascia — the connective tissues that wraps around muscles, which can become tighter as we age, causing all sorts of discomfort. This popular firm foam roller is great for newbies because it comes with free access to instructional videos; you'll learn from certified trainers how to effectively roll, and how to target specific body parts.
