Perceived Pain Responses to Foam Rolling Associate with Basal Heart Rate Variability
International Journal of Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork
Foam rolling (FR) is a self-myofascial release technique with unclear effects on autonomic functioning, indexed by heart rate variability (HRV). FR can be perceived as painful or relaxing, which may explain interindividual HRV responses. Purpose: To determine if acute FR alters resting HRV. A secondary aim was to determine if perceived pain during FR would predict HRV responses. Setting: Academic institution. Methods: In a randomized, crossover design, healthy adults (50% female) performeddoi:10.3822/ijtmb.v14i2.633 fatcat:yafttvtvfrawnhsjargur7dgpm
