I knew about the tennis ball as it gets into the trigger points but this is a new one to me so another idea to keep in mind although getting into some positions maybe a challenge.

I was told to stand up against a wall with the tennis ball and try to use it like that but the roller would be working out a position suited for ones abilities.

Perseus, I'd heard of 'Foam Rolling' ages ago and never paid any real attention to the concept. Like many other folks, I'd tried using a ball (a solid rubber type) and never got the knack of doing anything practical with it - it would usually slip from between my shoulder blades and disappear under the furniture. But having paid some attention to your linked article, I thought it might be worth trying. So, in the best traditions of Valerie Singleton on Blue Peter, I shortened an off-cut of plastic drainpipe to 12" and covered it in some of my wife's old foam yoga mat.

This is what I'm using. It gets less painful the more I use it. The dog wants to join in the fun when I get on the floor.

It's become less painful with greater use. Whether it will improve or worsen the condition I don't know. I had some myofacial release therapy a few years ago which involved high pressure. I agree though, try this only with caution, and certainly not if you have any other back conditions.
