SMR Tensor Fascia Latae Foam Roll

The SMR Tensor Fascia Latae Foam Roll exercise can help maintain proper hip and knee mobility and reduce the risk of IT band flare ups.

  • Lie on your side with the foam roll placed under your hip. 
  • Cross your top leg over the leg on the foam roll and place your foot on the floor.
  • The leg on the foam roll should be raised off the floor and remain that way during the exercise. 
  • Slowly roll from the knee to hip, rolling along the outer thigh, slightly in front of the knee and hip.
  • Apply prolonged pressure on tender spots for roughly 30-90 seconds depending on intensity of application.
