You can get foam rollers from Target, Sporting Goods stores, Barnes & Nobles(Odd I know but in the workout video section). They support all kinds of weight they come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Some have nubs, some are smooth, some have protruding shapes like squares or pyramids.
The foam rollers are different densities (softness) depending on color. I started with a rock hard roller and hated it. My PT sold me a softer roller (said they weren't available in sporting goods stores - I don't know) and I loved it. No need to torture yourself. Some people like the hard ones. Go with your personal preference.

I now have figured out why I have leg pain down to my knee. It can be in either of my legs. Does anyone know the type of foam roller that is best to get? Do I have to go to a doctor to get one? One person posted a comment that there is a difference in rollers according to colors. Is that true?
