Rolling

Has anyone though/ used a rolling teqnique to help relieve the pain and aches? There are all sorts of implements available and they certainly help to relieve muscle sorenes. Would the process of rolling help to break down/ relieve claudication?

Learned about the method on a Swedish medical TV-program. Have just started to try it. No effect yet.
