|Acute effects of lateral thigh foam rolling exercises on arterial tissue perfusion determined by spectral Doppler and power Doppler ultrasound|
An increase of arterial blood flow suggests a role for the acute phase after foam rolling. Our data may contribute to the understanding of local physiological reactions of self-myofascial release. The advantages of enhanced blood flow might be important for warm-up and recovery and our data support the implementation of foam rolling in sports if tissue circulation is required.
