This stick is great for use on the legs but as it is 43 cm long, it will not be as useful for the upper body as the rest of the range.
The center rod is surrounded by 8 spindles which independently roll over the muscle and has "memory" which allows the rod to return to its original position. Handles provide maximum comfort in the grip.

Muscle Management Techniques Lower Leg
- The Intracell, The Stick and Trigger Wheel are used to manage the lower leg
- Place hands about 6” apart for better control and easier use of The Stick
- Begin by rolling the muscles on the outer side of shinbone. Use short, specific back-and-forth strokes.
- Keep muscles relaxed
- Roll lengthwise, starting at just below the knee and continue to immediately above the ankle
- Search for trigger points [ouch pain] and roll with a progressively deeper pressure. When found . . . roll trigger points an additional 10 – 15 seconds.
- Follow the same procedure for all the calf muscles. Remember, always try to keep muscles relaxed
- The area between the two large muscles of the calf, downward to the heel cord, often needs special attention
- Trigger points in the bend of the knee require a provider. The knee/leg is flat and straight.
- Place a small wedge [folded towel] about 3” above the knee. This position exposes trigger points that often hide in the bend of the knee.
- Duplicate the technique used in step 1. Be very gentle.
- Roll harder and deeper – ONLY with permission. Hold The Stick with thumb & finger tips – about 6” apart.
- Hold the Trigger Wheel in the palm. Apply pressure with the thumb and index finger
- Roll the wheel with short, specific back-and-forth passes
- Use the when to search and find trigger points around heel/ankle
- Be gentle – but firm
- The Trigger Wheel is also effective around the knee and other small, hard to reach, areas of the lower leg

Find the Stick so much easier than foam roller. I leave it in the kitchen and roll sore muscles whilst waiting for toast to pop etc. it means I’m actually making a difference to my injuries so not getting sore knees whilst running anymore. I even bring to work.
Lightweight and easy to use. Ideal addition in our hiking holiday.
The product is what I needed just wish they sold the longer model the problem with this store is the amount of emails you receive asking for a review the only reason I’m reviewing it is to get them off my back
