I have methodically broken down my body from a lifetime of gymnastics, running, and climbing. I refuse to stop, though. This tool has been super helpful in keeping me in the game! I use it on my knees, IT band, and elbows. The 'how to' instructions that come with it are easy to understand for the times I want to augment my PT. My physical therapist uses the same tool and this allows me to take my therapy regimen home with no gaps in my rehab. Highly recommended!! - Stork .
Yes...you can say we are gear/gadget nuts here at The Feed and we are always looking for items to help with our performance. It's no secret that some of the top athletes around the world use soft tissue release tools to help their bodies recover from the daily stresses of their hard workouts. Let's face it - we are constantly beating up our bodies so why not give them some love?
The Wave Tool is the only tool that combines myofascial massage surfaces and IASTM edge technology to completely treat myofascial pain, restrictions, and adhesions. The unique and ergonomically focussed design increases user load/pressure sensitivity while decreasing hand strain. This tool is great for treatment for a number of conditions that include tendonitis, scar tissue, cellulite, adhesions, fibrosis, muscle strain, myofascial pain. It's no surprise this wickedly awesome tool was designed by physical therapists and professional athletes.
What's great about this tool is the size as well is that it's compact and fits in the palm of our hands and great to travel with. Trust us when we say it goes everywhere!
After our workouts, we like to make time (yes...this means you need to make time!!) to stretch and massage out the legs, arms, and back. We usually try and use this release tool and massage out 3-4 times per week if your an athlete that runs tight. Start in very small amounts of time and work into a routine. Your body will thank you!
