Pro Tips:
Small Roller. Big Impact.

In this episode of My New Philly, Dr. Rubina Tahir shows how to use the soft RistRoller to alleviate pain by getting rid of knots and tight muscles in the forearm. She demonstrates how to "roll out" small muscles on both sides of the forearm, as well as how to foam roll the hand.

"When muscles are elongated, there's less pain and there's less chance that you can pinch a nerve + irritate the median nerve, which is associated with carpal tunnel."

Professional Testimonials


"Helpful product for smaller muscle groups such as the forearm, hands, feet, and muscles along the elbow. I am a chiropractor and have recommended this product to people who have muscle and joint pain from repetitive stresses such as computer work, bar tending, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, and carpal tunnel type issues. Using the RistRoller on a daily basis is helpful."

Paul P, Chiropractor 

 
"The simple back and forth motion of the RistRoller® can stimulate sensory input to the forearm and hand, increasing blood flow, while targeting and releasing muscular tension and increasing range of motion following surgery. This device has enabled many of my patients to continue outpatient therapy in their own homes."

 — Laura Kevlin, OT


"Love using it for scar massage and sore/painful hands and forearms"

 — Hoang Tran OT/L, CHT

  

Dr. Sunita Shailam, MD, of Sun Health Medical recommends RistRoller® as an "easy carpal tunnel solution."

From our Blog:

What is Myofascial Release?
Beneath your skin, each muscle, blood vessel, nerve and organ are connected with a translucent wrap of fascia, a dense web of organic threads that covers and penetrates each component, much like the membrane of an orange. The fascia is designed to help you move smoothly without friction.  “Myo” refers to muscles. When you feel muscle irritation, it could be due to fascial restrictions, which cause areas of tightness and irritation.  Read More >>


Do Foam Rollers Really Work?
In prehab, rehab, and training environments foam rollers are used to restore muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and soft-tissue extensibility. A recent study concluded that combining foam rolling with static stretching provided the greatest effect on the range of motion in an athlete.  Another recent study showed that foam rolling reduces arterial stiffness and improves vascular endothelial function.  Read More >>
