A different Kind of Flossing
After having so many different injuries and spending so much time in physical therapy I started doing research on alternative treatment methods and prevention. I came across Dr. Kelly Starrett's website and a technique called flossing. Flossing is a technique which helps with re-perfusing tissues that become stiff after an injury. It works by compressing swelling byproducts out of the tissues and joints in to the lymphatic system for removal. At first, I though this method looked quite odd and possibly dangerous. I was quite desperate for a relief for my knee pain at the time so followed instructions in a couple videos and I was so amazed how fast it actually worked. I was able to treat many injuries with flossing and I highly recommend it. Adding flossing as a part of your recovery program will help with not just rehabilitating injures but it will also help with preventing them as well.
