I find that using these foam rollers is very painful for heavier people. My body can't handle the weight it puts on the roller. I actually went out and picked up a pool noodle which was softer and more flexible, it helped. Sounds funny, but oh well.

My left hip has been bothering me and this really helped. It is hard for me to hold myself in this position, but I'm sure it will get easier as I ya know, shrink!

I love my foam roller! I use it all the time to keep my back in shape.

It really works, its painful on my right side, when I first start more up by my hip, but if I use it a few times that pain goes away, left side doesn't bother me much, does help.

I hate using the foam roller! It really hurts! However, I do use it to help treat fibromyalgia. It is quite painful while using it. I just keep control of how much pressure I apply on the roller.

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.

This was incredibly informative! I'm so eager to give this a try! My only question is where can I find a Foam Roller, and will they support bigger people? I don't want to flatten the thing! LOL

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?
