Using a cork roller is considered a form of self-massage and can produce many of the same benefits.
Rolling out your muscles has the ability to increase performance, cork rolling can also be used to relieve and reduce tension caused by daily stresses.
What does cork rolling muscles do?
Cork rolling breaks up adhesions, reduces stiffness, decreases soreness, increases blood flow and reduces tissue tension, leading to improved recovery and performance.
Studies have shown that rolling out your muscles does decrease tissue tension and can improve your range of movement, increasing your speed and flexibility. While there are many benefits to rolling out your muscles prior to or following a workout, studies have also shown that cork rolling can be used without affecting muscle performance and strength and may just be used as a cheaper method of soft tissue massage.
How often should you cork roll?
Cork rolling can be done on a daily basis on any muscle group. It’s most effective when it’s utilised on a consistent basis. Roll out before exercising to reduce muscle tension and increase blood flow, and following exercise to limit the amount of muscle soreness and stiffness. If you struggle with sleep due to aches, cork rolling prior to bedtime may decrease the stress and tension from the day to aid in getting a better night's sleep.
Some areas may be tender, but by targeting a specific muscle for five to 30 seconds, you should feel the tenderness of the area dissipate. It’s not advised to roll over known injuries or joint areas without a qualified medical professional’s permission.
How can I keep my muscles healthy after a cork rolling session?
This practice only produces temporary effects on the muscles and is only one aspect of keeping your tissue healthy. For long-term changes, I recommend movement and strength work. To help improve your performance and muscle recovery time, it’s necessary to be consistent with movement, drink plenty of water, get adequate sleep, and eat healthy and nutritious foods.
