Life for a pro triathlete, or any serious triathlete for that matter, is generally one long series of battling tweaks, strains, muscle pulls, knocks and bruises. I know that first-hand as much as anyone! But I’ve found that, whenever possible when combating such incessant damage to your body, it’s best to be proactive rather than reactive. Ongoing body maintenance, as part of your everyday training regimen, is preferable to days and sometimes weeks in rehab if you don’t do it. As a result, I’m always looking for medical aids, tools and equipment that can help me in my ongoing battle to maintain fitness.
One of the best tools I’ve ever used is a LiteCure Class IV deep tissue laser. Pro sports teams use them for their athletes, no matter what the sport – from baseball to football, athletics to triathlon. The LiteCure laser is meant to speed up your own body’s natural healing process through something called “photo-bio-stimulation.” All I know is that I use it all the time! I often use it before a workout on problem areas, as well as after a workout in combination with a massage. Sometimes the feeling of relief from aches and pains is immediate! So the next time you’re looking for help in combating those damned tweaks and strains, think about having a LiteCure laser session!
