“The Stick” is a popular self-massage tool used to aid muscle recovery in Olympic training centers and by many NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL teams. Medical and wellness professionals, (physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapist etc), also use/recommend the device.
I use my The Stick, (sprinter version), after every long run on my calves to disperse lactic acid and accelerate muscle recovery. Outside of running, I use it periodically to release stress or trigger points in my neck, shoulders and upper back. I prefer it over the foam roller, because the use of the handles provide the resistance. You don’t have to get on the ground to use it. I’ve used while riding home in the car after a race.
It is WONDERFUL!!!!!!
