|Acute effects of lateral thigh foam rolling exercises on arterial tissue perfusion determined by spectral Doppler and power Doppler ultrasound|
Our results indicate that arterial blood flow of the lateral thigh increases significantly following foam rolling exercises in comparison to baseline conditions (p<0.05). We could detect a relative raise for Vmax of 73.6% (0 min) and 52.7 % (30 min) (p<0.001), for TAMx of 53.2% (p<0.001) and 38.3 % (p=0.002) and for TAMn of 84.4% (p<0.001) and 68.2 % (p<0.001). In addition semiquantitative Power Doppler scores at all portions revealed an increased average grading of 1.96 directly after intervention and 2.04 after 30 min compared to 0.75 at baseline.
