I had trouble with a right calf muscle being tight after each run the CTM band has really been helpful....It has worked the tightness out of my calf muscle....I use before and after my runs.
I do lots of running and biking,from time to time I have patellafemoris inflammation,with Ctm band on 2 mnts plus stretch and move my pain/inflammation was reduced and now I’m fine. I recommend Ctm band and thank you.
Been using it for months on myself and my adolescent competitive gymnasts and we have seen great benefits from it! Definitely recommend this product to every athlete!
I'm a stubborn runner who won't lay off. I love a good recovery too and this one meets all the marks. It's easy to use, it offers very timely relief. Sometimes I use it before a run, but love to use it a few hours after a hard effort. It really loosens everything back up. It's fantastic
I battled plantar fasciitis for about 15 months. I got new shoes, bought expensive inserts, stretched and foam rolled. I’m sure all of that helped, but within a few weeks after trying the CTM Band, I was suddenly without pain for the first time in well over a year and it’s still gone 3 months later. Thank you!
Sehr empfehlenswert zur Regeneration und vom dem Training/ Wettkampf....hilft mir meine steinharte Wadenmuskulatur zu lockern.
Kauftip, auch wenn der Zoll ein bißchen extra kostet zahlt es sich aus!
My background: life long runner, and currently a cross country coach. I recommend this product to my athletes and use the ctm band myself most days.
I have been using the ctm band for over a year now, and i have really seen the benefits of it. The ctm band provides the same benefits as your foam roller but is especially helpful for alleviating tightness and soreness in muscles that are hard to hit with a foam roller. I have found that the ctm band is far superior to foam rollers in treating the calves, hamstrings, and hip flexors, as those are seas that are hard to place enough weight on with a foam roller.
I have recommended this product to some of the athletes I coach and they have seen the benefits as well. Lingering tightness or soreness that athletes had been struggling with for weeks was alleviated with consistent use of the ctm band before and after workouts.
In short, can’t recommend this product enough to runners or athletes who love their foam roller.
Much like a good sports massage, the CTM Band is a "hurt so good" approach that leaves my muscles feeling great.
I ordered the CTM Band several months ago and have used it almost daily ever since. It's a new approach to muscle care that really works!
No bells and whistles here, but it works better than anything else I've tried. Would recommend to anyone wanting more than typical foam roller or stick roller.
This band has really helped me stretch out my calves before early morning workouts. Highly recommend!
I love my CTM Band! My physical therapist recommended that I buy the band. I work out a lot and have arthritis in my knees. Using the band on my quads really helps alleviate my knee pain. The band is easy to use and really digs deep into my muscles. It only takes a short amount of time to use and you can target the exact spot you want to work on.
This thing can really help on sore muscles, and allows you to dig into a lot of spots. I have lots of toys, but I use it conjunction with a regular roller, lacrosse ball, and IASTM tool. There are a lot of issues that this is simply the best thing for: lateral and medial quad, high hamstring, peroneus, toe flexors... these are some of my most frequent usage spots, and I really feel the CTM band is the quickest way to take care of them.
I discovered the CTM band in some running articles and decided to give it a try. This product is perfect for releasing tension in my calves and quads after a long ride on the bike. I highly recommend giving it a shot. As testament I bought my sister and dad both one.
I ordered the CTM band after seeing it in a few running articles. The impact was immediate. I had soreness and tightness in my calves. Two minutes on each leg, and I had immediate relief. The band is also excellent for loosening up my quads after a long ride on the bike. I highly recommend adding this to your stretching routine.
The CTM band has been very beneficial as an athlete and coach. It is one of the best warm up and recovery tools I've came across. It makes treating my athletes so much easier because it is easy and so quick to use. And you can't beat the price for such a useful tool.
This product is a must have for my daily routine as a professional runner. I love using it on my calves and it is such an easily transportable tool for wherever I need to bring it! Though simple, the science behind it is amazing!
I’ve been using the CTM band pretty much daily due to constant calf strains and the band has been great. It’s helped loosen up and provide blood flow to the calf/Achilles problem areas I’ve had for years. Since using the band I’ve been able to train for marathons without missing time due to pesky calf injuries like I had in the past.
I have trained for 2 marathons. The first marathon I had to go see my sports chiropractor,Kyle, about 5-6 times throughout the training so that I could get dry needling done on my legs due to shin splints.
The second marathon I went to see him again at the beginning of my training and he told me about and used the CTM band during my appointment. I immediately bought it and did not have major shin splints as I did before.
I used the CTM band almost after every run and my legs felt amazing. I did not have any injuries or sore muscles throughout training due to the use of the CTM band.
Overall, if you are a runner I HIGHLY recommend purchasing a CTM band.
This device is extremely effective at relieving tight and sore muscles better than rolling or stretching. It is simple to use.
