For running , My back gets a little cramp like and sore & using leg press for squats. Is a foam roller good for stretching the back? Any safe tips?

In brief: Back program

Always good to maintain strength and flexibility in your back.
See a PT who can teach you a good ongoing stretching and strengthening program. Foam rollers are good but this only represents a small part of a back rehab program.
