Posted this on the FB thread:

Yeah, compression of the tissues and moving it helps to break up tons of scar tissue/adhesions/etc. and also the pressure will help to "reset" joint mechanics with the newly released tissue. Good stuff.

As far as overall knowledge base goes, this would seem to tend to work more with acute tendonitis rather than chronic degenerative tendinosis... though it should theoretically be able to help both to some extent. The former probably more though.
You also get a lot of good stimulation of mechanoreceptors to mask pain.

It can help with healing an injury although it's not a general panacea depending on what the injury(s) actually are...

It's generally worth a shot though unless you have chronic degeneration where things could break

Re: Tendonitis Relief?

I'm new to Crossfit and have had some tendonitis in my left knee from jumping and overexerting it. I've been using my roller here and there to roll it out a little, but I'll be trying this as well.

So far, the only relief I can get from the tendonitis pain is by taking either Ibuprofen or Naproxen, which I try to only do on days that I work out and its aggravated.

Perhaps you should actually not do exercise that aggravates it.... and work on other exercises/weaknesses while you do the non-painful mobility work and exericse to let it heal.

That is, unless you want some chronic tendonitis.

Re: Tendonitis Relief?

Well, fwiw, I took it easy my last couple workouts, and really worked on stretching out my legs before and after. Also spent more time rolling out than I previously did. The tendonitis pain is gone, entirely! Very happy with that, because I don't want to discontinue my workouts (and I also don't want to hurt myself..) I'm going to keep working on stretching out as much as possible before and after.. It's truly made a difference for me. Thought I'd share.
