stretch muscle. It is highly effective in the treatment of muscle pain
and trigger points.

What is the Stick Made of, how long will it last?Medical Talk:
Stick products are made of a space-age plastic that allow necessary
flexibility of the tool and provide maximum compression of the muscles
(the Stick contains no rubber or wood). The center rod of the Stick is
surrounded by spindles which roll independently over the muscle. The
handles provide maximum comfort in the grip. The Stick comes with a
90-day satisfaction guarantee, and a 1 year manufacturer's warranty
against defects. With proper use, The Stick should last a lifetime.
The Stick converts non-compliant muscle to compliant muscle by
performing what Dr. Travell calls stripping massage. In fact, this
noted medical physician relates that, "deep stripping massage of the
tender spot in the muscle was generally the treatment of choice for
muscular rheumatism (myofascial trigger points) long before the turn of
this century, and for fibrositis afterwards."
The Stick allows people to self-perform general as well as segmental
therapeutic procedures with a high degree of precision. These
procedures remove the barriers to peak physical performance. It is the
unassisted rolling, stretching, twisting and compressing of the muscle
that diffuses barrier trigger points and converts non-compliant muscle
to compliant muscle.
