Top 5 Best Selling Foam Roller in 2016

 Top 5 Best Selling Foam Rollers in 2016


As a registered physiotherapist and clinic owner in Toronto, I treat a variety of patients (sports, wcb, mva, private) and believe in offering complete care at my own practice. Offering “complete care” includes recommending helpful advice and products that can boost your patient’s recovery.

In a clinical setting, foam rollers are an excellent tool to recommend to assist patients in maintaining the gains they achieve in their treatments. Foam rollers provide a portable self-massage tool that keeps their muscles loose, and increases flexibility. Overall, foam rollers can offer a faster recovery for injuries and issues, which is a goal most patient's happily want to be actively involved in.

That's the thing about offering complete care. Although you may feel pushy selling products, it's not pushy at all if a product makes sense and can help. Essentially patients just want to recover as fast as possible.  Help them be a part of their own recovery and increase their rate of a successful outcome by offering suitable products, by offering complete care.

Your patients will thank you for it. 

Today I want to share my opinion on what I like/don’t like about CSC's top 5 best selling foam rollers, as well as which type of patients are most suited for these products so we can better help clinicians offer complete care for your practice.
