    I just acquired a 6″ x 36″ foam roller. It is extremely firm. Is this the kind that you recommend or have I gotten the wrong one? It’s not very comfortable but I can deal with it if it is the proper one.


    • Hi Len,
      The rollers do come in different levels of density. All I can say is that the rollers I use are relatively firm… meaning if I squeeze it I can’t get much deeper than 1/4″ depth if that. On the website it says “standard density”. I definitely feel it’s firmness when I first lay on it but it seems to subside quickly. If you’re experiencing pain at all please discontinue the use and try another one.

    You mentioned stay away from the lower back. Do you have an exercise for lower, lumbar stiffness.?
