When it comes to joint pain, whether it’s chronic or from a new sprain – the first tool I grab is always my mobility floss.
But when I first learned of mobility flossing (aka voodoo bands), I gave it the side eye and dropped it in my basket of tools, thinking I probably wouldn’t use it much.
And then I sprained my ankle – a full-out bruised all along the bottom and not able to walk right sprain.
It was the daily use of the mobility floss (not ice!) that got me back to walking relatively pain-free in just a few days.
So grab yourself some Mobility Floss and enjoy today’s episode!
