More Science Behind The CTM Band
A main reason why we're so excited about the CTM Band and what it can do, revolves around the fact that there's a significant amount of science and research that proves its potential. Take for example this study that shows the effectiveness of ischemic pressure (compression!) followed by sustained stretching on myofascial trigger points (muscle pain). What other tool on the market can combine these two components like the CTM Band!? Or how about this study that shows an increase in ankle dorsiflexion in young athletes when combining foam rolling and static stretching. Again, CTM Band simultaneously combines the effects of foam rolling (myofascial release) and stretching. What other tools do this? Poor ankle dorsiflexion is a leading cause of plantar fasciitis, achilles pain, shin splints, calf strains, and can also wreck your squat!
Clearly I'm a huge nerd about this stuff, so I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you have about how the CTM Band can help with these things. Please leave a comment below!
