Why Foam Rolling Is NOT Myofascial Release

So I just got back from doing a live radio show with Adam Jeffrey Weinberg for www.TalkRadioNYC.com and the topic of our discussion was "Why Foam Rolling Is Bullshit."

This video from Dr. Andreo Spina is a perfect representation of why I chose to discuss this topic. 

While I foam roll regularly and love the way it feels, I think it's important that everyone in the fitness world understands that foam rolling is basically no different than massage therapy. It is NOT myofascial release and it CANNOT create lasting release and change the the fascial system.
