RunnerDude is proud to announce that The Stick is sponsoring the newest RunnerDude's Blog Contest! If you're not familiar with The Stick, it's an awesome massage tool designed to
• prevent & predict muscle injuries
• dramatically improve strength, flexibility and endurance
• rapidly prepare muscles for physical activity
• disperse the effects of lactic acid following activity
• accelerate muscle recovery
In "medical talk," The Stick converts non-compliant muscle to compliant muscle by performing what Dr. Travell calls stripping massage. In fact, this noted medical physician relates that, "deep stripping massage of the tender spot in the muscle was generally the treatment of choice for muscular rheumatism (myofascial trigger points) long before the turn of this century, and for fibrositis afterwards." The Stick allows people to self-perform general as well as segmental therapeutic procedures with a high degree of precision. These procedures remove the barriers to peak physical performance. It is the unassisted rolling, stretching, twisting and compressing of the muscle that diffuses barrier trigger points and converts non-compliant muscle to compliant muscle. In layman's terms? Short-term and long-term PAIN RELIEF!
I've used The Stick for several years along with another product (The FootWheel) made by the same company. Both have done wonders in alleviating post workout pain and muscle fatigue. For more information and a demo on how The Stick works, check out the video clip below.
