When muscles are continuously worked they become more and more tight. The tissue may create adhesions under the fascia and develop "knots" within the muscle. This will inhibit the potential length the muscle can be stretched and, in turn, cause mobility restrictions.

There is a good article on foam rolling by Jennifer Wilson in the 100th issue of the Performance Menu that you can download for free at
