Do you floss?
The dentist says you should floss everyday and KStar agrees.
Today's (belated) Mobility Monday post is all about a mobility tool outside of the popular lacrosse ball and foam roller. Voodoo Floss Bands. Voodoo Floss or Voodoo Bands is a fancy name for a long latex band used to compress and re-perfuse tissues and joints. A mobility weapon that helps an athlete enhance the benefits of stretching & 'unglue' their issues.
When wrapped around a joint or muscle, it creates compression around the site while you work through your range of motion. According to Angus Certified, Voodoo Bands are effective tools for 4 reasons:
1) Restores sliding surfaces of the compressed and regional tissues being wrapped. (Like Self Inflicted ART)
2) Pushes swelling out of joints/tissues when used to treat in this way.
3) Re-perfuses tissues that have poor blood flow
4) Creates flexion gapping at joints like the elbow restoring normal joint motion.
