If your at this site you already know about voodoo flossing. This is next level. I don’t use it daily, but when you have a spot that needs to be worked out, it is amazing. I was super surprised by how effective it is. I used to try and floss with a lacrosse ball, but this is the way to go. Good value for the money.
As a sports chiropractor, I am always looking for devices to recommend to my patients to help them take care of themselves and make sure they remain injury free in between treatments. As I was searching for a floss band and a trigger point device on the internet one day, I came across the CTM Band that combined both techniques into one great device. What a great idea! You get the benefits of trigger point therapy along with the benefits of fascial flossing in one device. The trigger point attachments really increase the release of a trigger point while you floss and release the associated fascia around it. I also like the option of buying the expansion pack, but those extra attachments should maybe come along with the band since you get more options to use with it. I would pay extra for them with the band, but I understand everyone may not want the extra attachments, though, so they may not want to pay extra for them.
I was intrigued by the science behind the concept and decided to give these bands a try. Wow was I blown away.
1) I have for years and years had a clicking in my left knee and dreaded leg day
2) I'm a swim coach and have swimmers with predominantly various knee issues
After 1, 3 minute use, my knees did not click. Using a few times a week has maintained that and I actually enjoy leg day now. NO MORE CLICKING.
As for swimmers, they too ARE so pleased with the results.
Simply incredible product.
Got it because it looked like a novel approach to help alleviate certain muscle aches, and tightness and I've been using it on my low and mid-back as well as quads and hamstrings. The strap-based system makes it possible to use in areas that it's traditionally difficult to keep consistent pressure on for extended amounts of time. Very highly recommended and I'll probably get the larger size in the near future.
flossing + trigger points! Can't get any better!
