5a5fb60e-e10a-458c-905e-138d92612b47

Riding your motorcycle is fun, but when you ride for longer periods of time, your body will start protesting. At least, that is the case for many bikers. Let me help you resolve these issues because getting there is all the fun!

 

  1.         Recovery Floss

 

Wrap the area of concern towards your heart. So if you are wrapping your ankle, start closer to your toes. And if you are wrapping your elbow, start closer to your hands. Apply 50% stretch/pressure apply for 30 sec 3 consecutive times. You can purchase the Recovery Floss at TheXFitDoc.com.

 

  1.        Pincher Method

 

To start off, the SCM muscle is actually named the sternocleidomastoid muscle.  This muscle is responsible for specific neck and head motions and is split into two parts.  The interesting thing is that neither part sends pain to the neck, however, it can often cause jaw pain or pain that travels up into the head.  Besides headache-like pain and pain in the cheek or jaw region, it has also been linked to eye disturbances, sinus problems, inner ear problems, and even dizziness.

Grab the SCM muscle and/or trigger points with a pincher-type grip along the muscle, Hold for 7-10 seconds at different spots along the muscle.  This will help break up any knots or trigger points and help relax the muscle (Remember, the sternocleidomastoid travels from behind the ear in front of your ATLAS bone to the top of your chest essentially so you should be able to do this with either hand.)

 

  1. Proper Rest

 

Not only is the dog bone pillow great for traveling, sun-bathing, camping, sleeping, reclining, and a great low back support but it is the recovery tool you need to prevent forward head carriage in a world where we are attached to our cell phones, video games and the computer. Avoid granny hump, the hunch-back by applying this pillow to your daily routine by resting your neck on it 10-15 minutes a day.
