When Moving Becomes A Pain

When Moving Becomes A Pain

Is your jumping not as powerful as you know it can be?

If the sport you play has a lot of side-to-side movement or jumping, you may be feeling this pain a time or two during the game. In fact, many soccer athletes report this kind of muscle pain, as do volleyball, lacrosse, field hockey, and basketball players. These athletes are jumping, blocking across a net, dodging in and out of defensive player attacks, and making many quick maneuvers sideways and even up and down movements. It looks exciting, however, it can also result in a painful type of muscle injury.

This kind of pain is caused by fascial adhesions in the small adductor muscle called the Adductor Brevis, located on the upper inside of our leg or groin area. The Adductor Brevis is a small muscle but plays a huge role when the movements involve jumping, rotation, andstabilizing other adductor muscles. It’s a hard to reach area if used with a typical stretching and foam roller. And if neglected, can cause a lot of tightness, discomfort, and adhesionsin the fascia surrounding and protecting the muscle.

Typically, we just focus on the “main” muscles areas like the back, glutes, calf, and shoulders. But what about smaller muscles? Like the Hamstrings or the Adductor Brevis, these areas tend to get neglected because they aren’t considered as a major muscle group but they can seriously impede our ability to play if neglected. They help stabilize those “big” muscles. They also have critical connection points, like the groin and knees. Such is the case of the Adductor Brevis. And it’s important to target those smaller areas as well, to keep the muscles working efficiently.

For such type of muscle soreness, it’s recommended to use a portable, take-n-go roller, specifically designed to reach the Adductor Brevis muscle. It can also address the soreness in the Hamstrings and remove the fascial adhesions often found there, the athlete can then experience relief from the pain and gain a better performance in every game.

THE 3-DAY AZE CHALLENGE

THE 3-DAY AZE CHALLENGE

Why would you want to Aze your day? Here are some basic facts, because 80% of the population throughout their lifetime has low back pain problems. A horrific stat to begin with, but why is back pain so prevalent? Before I give you any answers, tell me this. Do you commute to work daily? Are you sitting in meetings all day? Or are you a student who literally sits in class all day too?

Do you know that hamstring tightness extending to the calves, is a key component in making the back pain worse. That is why the condition worsens when an individual is sitting all day because they are driving cars to work or because their career involves heavy computer screen time and even extends it at home. You name the location during the day, more than likely you are definitely sitting. What if we have a daily paradigm shift, where we literally take back our BACKS!

I challenge you to roll morning and night and at work or at school on your own Aze roller and start experiencing tremendous relief from back pain. Join us today!
