Lower-back pain is a fact of life for a significant number of adults, which means it is likely your clients will turn to you for help in relieving their pain so they can return to the activities they enjoy. Biomechanics expert Justin Price demonstrates several myofascial release techniques that can greatly improve the mobility of the feet, ankles and hips, and help alleviate lower-back pain.
Performing these myofascial release exercises on a regular basis will help alleviate pain in your client’s lower back (as well as in the feet, ankles, knees and hips). For more information on how to help your clients address the muscle imbalances and postural issues that contribute to lower-back pain, check out part 1 and part 2 of Justin Price’s informative series in ACE ProSource.

As any professional athlete will tell you, maximizing your recovery is just as important as maximizing your training. However, Zoot’s new Ultra 2. 0 CRx Compression Socks strike two chords harmoniously at once. These socks feature an mmHg of 18-30, making them sufficient for recovery, without being to tight for active use. So, you’re able to lessen your recovery time before you even get there. The socks were constructed with ZOOT’s hallmark BioWrap fit, which provides anatomically designed areas of compression in order to stabilize your calf muscles and to support your Achilles tendon during exercise. After all, compression fabrics stabilize muscles in order to reduce damage during exercise. However, that’s only one part of the compression story. These socks provide a graduated compression with ZOOT’s new NanoGLIDE fabric. Graduated in its design, this material is made to compress the most at your foot and ease up as it gets closer to your calf. This forces blood flow from the bottom of your legs back to your heart. Essentially, this puts pressure on the muscles, arteries, and veins that are farthest away from the heart, ultimately forcing the body to circulate blood through narrower circulatory channels. So, almost like kinking a hose, it creates arterial pressure, and like when you finally release the kink, blood circulates faster to the heart. This accelerates recovery, by providing more oxygenated blood cells to the oxygen-deprived muscle groupings. On top of stellar recovering properties, NanoGLIDE helps to reduce blistering and hot spots at the toe box and heel. And to keep everything nice and cool, ZOOT placed its lightweight and highly-breathable AirZONE fabric atop the foot. The Zoot Ultra 2. 0 CRx Compression Socks are available in the colors Black/graphite, Black/safety yellow, Safety Yellow/black, and White/graphite and in the sizes Three, Four, and Five. Please note that sizing is based upon calf circumference, so we recommend that you refer to th…
