I have been treating, teaching and motivating all age groups to move and improve for many, many years.
A long foam roller is my favourite exercise tool.... it adds another dimension to your workout and could almost be considered a home gym, all "rolled" up in a convenient, accessible, space saving size.
I hope it finds a permanent spot in your house for daily use- whether it is for a simple star fish or hip flexor stretch or as part of a complex workout.
Fiona Naayen MWS PARTNER54 Physiotherapist
I am an experienced exercise physiotherapist with over 30 years of practice in public and private settings. I am passionate about exercise and believe that "exercise is medicine". I practice what I preach. I am a keen runner, cyclist, bush walker and dragon boater.
Owner and creator of Physio on a Roll, a website that describes and demonstrates a wide range of exercises, hosts a blog and live exercises classes. The foam roller features heavily on the site for its fabulous ability to activate the core and assist those with "issues" ease pain and stiffness. Check it out on Instagram @physioonaroll.
I released my first book "Let it Roll" in March 2021. It shows you how you can effectively build strength, improve your mobility and manage your pain using simple exercises and a foam roller. It also shares with you the latest advice around pain and exercise so that you can feel and function better.
