In this audible blog post (4min15sec), I discuss the most popular soft tissue mobilization techniques being used by elite athletes. The intent of the discussion is not to educate the listener on the nuances of each technique, but to share what techniques are being used. Manual therapy is an integral part of a modern day athlete's training regime. The practices of elite athletes are often shrouded in mystique and secrecy. I'd like to set the record straight. There are not any treatment methods being heavily used by the top sports medicine practictioners that an aspiring athlete can't find in their home town. Aspiring athletes should know what techniques are being used, so that they can seek out a practitioner in their area should any muscular dysfunction arise. Good luck and good training!
