PediRoller

Category: Running Injury Care and Massage
Recommended for: anyone who wants to reduce tension, increase flexibility and stimulate circulation in the foot. Helps to relieve plantar fasciitis.

Pros

  • Portable
  • Washable
  • Easy to use
  • Can be frozen to help reduce inflammation or alleviate pain
  • Unlike a golf ball, tennis ball or frozen bottle it is less prone to rolling away!

Cons

  • Massaging across the foot from left to right is a little awkward.
  • You can't heat it – wouldn't it be lovely if you could?

The PediRoller is used to help relieve the following conditions:

  • Tiredness and aching in the soles of the feet.
  • Tightness in the arch of the foot, plantar fascia and layers beneath the plantar fascia.
  • Plantar fasciitis: tightening, thickening and inflammation of the plantar fascia, the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot which connects the heel bone to the toes and creates the arch of the foot.
  • Tightness and inflexibility in the feet after running.

The PediRoller is placed beneath the foot and rolled back and forth along the sole. It can be frozen and used to help alleviate swelling.


Verdict

PedirollerAs a not very stretchy person with feet as tight as concrete paving slabs I am prone to arch pain. I have found the PediRoller to be a very useful little device.

I was able to vary the intensity of the massage by increasing or decreasing the force exerted on the PediRoller for either a gentle or deep tissue massage. Furthermore, it didn't require a lot of concentration which is always a bonus after a long, tiring run and it could be used while watching the TV... lovely.

Do I recommend the PediRoller? YES!
