Fascia Buzz Sports Techniques

 

Baseball

Baseball is comprised of so many different, specialized movements.  Pitchers are notorious for having "bad arms".  In reality, a major portion of the arm trouble has its source elsewhere- in the back, chest or shoulder in most cases.  The stomach and abdomen are also major areas to focus on so that total movement in the midsection can be achieved.  The batter finds the neck, shoulder, and upper back region prime targets for trouble spots.  Fluidity of throwing and swinging can be achieved by focusing on these areas with the Fascia Buzz Techniques.

Six techniques are included in this package: abdomen, neck, chest, chest lock, shoulders & arms, and back. 

 

Basketball

Two things stand out in basketball- the game is played on a hard surface and the game is typically played by big, exceptionally tall persons.  As slender as most basketball players are, their weight is comparable with that of football players.  Heavy weight coupled with hard surface means rough work for the ankle, knee, and hip joints.  Many basketball players endure years of shock felt by the knee joint, hip joints and there is a tendency toward tightening and loss of mobility throughout the hips and thighs.  Quadriceps strains, hamstrings, and calf pulls all predominate as a result of this tightening.  Ankles and also chest muscles are common aggravations or even injuries. 

Six techniques are included in this package: calves, hamstrings, groin, knees, lower leg, quad strain, twisted ankle, and toes. 

 

 

Cycling

In cycling the athletes body must have a strong, solid foundation.  This is the key to attaining top performance, avoiding injury and achieving longevity in the sport.  To obtain peak performance, all systems must be firing and operating in concert as a single coordinated unit.  Many cyclists fall into the trap of thinking that cycling is all about the legs.  It is not that simple.  Your legs, hips, and buttocks do generate the majority of cycling power, but to stabilize the lower half of your body, you need to have a strong abdomen, back and upper body.  All sections must work together to stabilize the bike and deliver maximum power to the pedals.  Fascia Buzz techniques will focus on assisting the whole body for optimum cycling performance and recovery.

Eight techniques are included in this package: abdomen, calves/hamstrings, chest, hands, quads, shoulders/arms, upper back and wrists.

 

Dance

Dance represents flow, impeccable balance, intense muscular control, grace, rhythm and speed. Muscles that create extension of a joint must contract throughout the whole range.  A dancer needs to understand the actions of the muscle groups that create the various combinations of dance positions.  More importantly if the fascial layer is inflexible causing one muscle group to be tighter, or injured, they will continually over-recruit the wrong muscles, either building bulk or causing an overuse injury.  We know this because the fascial layer is directly over the muscle and is a continuous webbing within the body.  By paying attention to the fascia, a dancer can gain an edge in balance, increased flexibility and joint mobility which produces elegant uninterrupted fluidity in performance.  Techniques in this package include spine, shoulders and arms, pelvis, hips, legs, ankles and feet.

Ten techniques are included in this package: various feet techniques, spine, back, shoulders, hips and core .

 

Football

Football is a rough sport with a lot of fallout injuries.  It can be hard to pinpoint a problem that characterize football.  Sometimes they encompass aminute area such as thumb strain or shoulder separation- and sometimes they take over an entire limb or section of the body.  For that reason, these techniques will focus on a few areas widely spaced throughout the body that represent the kind of stress typical of this rugged sport.  Thumb strain, shoulder strain, lower back and hamstring strain.

Six techniques are included in this package: knees, back/hamstrings, neck, quads, shoulder, and thumbs.

 

Golf

Golf is not a maximum effort sport.  It is a maximum ability sport.  The forward slide of the hips coordinated with the twist of the trunk is the heart of your swing.  It is also the prime area for power loss.  The middle body transits and intensifies the power generated by the legs into the region of shoulders and arms.  Anything off in timing or flexibility and power is lost throughout the entire swing.  Techniques offered in this package include emphasis on the shoulders, lower back, knees and mid-section. 

Six techniques are included in this package: knees, abs, chest, shoulders, hamstrings, and lower back

 

Gymnastics

It goes without saying that gymnastics and dancing has an almost unlimited potential for causing problems due to the wide variety of movements herded together under those categories.  Your natural movement dictates how you strain or hurt yourself.  That being said, this package will include lower back stress points and hip stresss points.  It is recommended that one interested in this sport also visit the stretching and yoga pages for additional techniques.

Six techniques are included in this package: calves, hamstrings, groin, knees, lowerleg, quad strain, twisted ankle, and toes. 

 

Hockey

Hockey, because of the rest between periods during the game cannot be considered a maximum-effort sport.  But it is an exhausting one, and those rest periods are timed to give you a break whenever you are in danger of falling off your maximum speed potential.  As strenuous as the game is, the hockey player -barring injury- can look forward to a lengthier career than can the football or basketball player.  Contact injuries are the greatest problems, and the effects of these, of course are legendary for cropping up time and again over the long run.  Knees rate high here, which can lead to future problems in the leg, hip or lower back.  The shoulder of the stick hand is also a victim of accumulated stress.  Treating the trapezius and teres major stress points on the back of the shoulders and pectorals on the chest will alleviate major shoulder injuries.

Seven techniques are included in this package: chest, hips, knees, lower back/hamstrings, neck, quads, and shoulders.

 

Riding

Riding is not an activity where the horse does all the work.  Controlling three quarters of a ton on the hoof at a gallop, over a jump or across rough terrain is as physically demanding as any sport can be.  It uses the entire body to do it well, and causes intense pressure in several specified areas of the body.  Shoulders, lower back, and groin pull will be covered in this package of techniques.

Six techniques are included in this package: groin, hands, abdomen, shoulders, hips, and shoulders.

 

Racquetball

Racquetball is a very fast a vigorous game that deals out a lot of punishment to the player.  Though it bears a resemblance to tennis, racquetball is in reality a whole new ball game.  The raquetball stroke is far more spasmodic, delivered most often from an off-balance position.  Movement in the sport is mostly forward and up, backward and up.  Heavy stress is felt in the arm and shoulder support muscles.  Stress to the deltoid neck-accross-shoulder area is included.  Additionally, raquetball demands a great deal of lunging, twisting, and bending, causing stress on the lower back, calf, and ankle. 

Six techniques are included in this package: ankles, calves, elbows, lower back, hamstings, shoulders/arms.

 

Running

For a jogger or runner, the most important body area is the feet.  If you do not have good feet, you will not be a good runner.  The broad range of potential problems opens up to knees, thighs, hips, and shoulders.  Proper warm up and stretching is essential and Fascia Buzz techniques offered in this package will help condition feet, knees, thighs, hips and shoulders to prevent injury and keep you running for a long time.

Ten techniques are included in this package: abdomen, achilles, ankle, calves, hips and legs, joggers heal, knees, lower back/hamstrings, shoulders, and toes.

 

 

Shooting

A shooting sport is a competitive sport involving tests of proficiency (accuracy and speed) using various types of guns such as firearms and airguns . The shooting sports are categorized by the type of firearm, target and distances at which targets are shot at.

Hunting is also a shooting sport, and indeed shooting live pigeons was an Olympic event (albeit only once, in 1900).  Mobility in shoulders, arms and legs is essential and increases accuracy while also aiding in the prevention of soreness and injuries. 

Six techniques are included in this package: hands, lowerback/hamstrings, neck, quads, shoulders and arms.

 

Skiing

Skiing is a fast demanding sport that relies on quick reflexes and perfect balance to get you down the slope in a safe, upright position.  Shifting weight, raising arms or a forward bend from the waist each require multiple simultaneous contractions inwidely ranging muscle groups in order to provide counterbalance.  The body is in constant isometric contraction while performing this sport.  Areas of stress include neck and shoulder regions come in a heavy dose of overstrain due to the locked posture in the bent forward position.  The hips, lower back, and thighs are also heavily stressed in skiing.

Six techniques are included in this package: hips, knees/lower legs, lower back/hamstrings, neck, quads, and shoulders.

 

Soccer

Soccer players on the whole are a very well-conditioned group of athletes.  The game is physically demanding and requires speed, flexiblity, and stamina.  Balance is important and reduces the potential for strains in the midsection region.  Soccer is a sport that takes its toll on you from the hips, groin, the entire leg and the ankles.  This package will emphasize techniques on the knee, groin, and ankles.

Six techniques are included in this package: ankles, calves, groin, hips/legs, knees and shins.

 

Swimming

Swimming is a maximum effort sport.  Like running, it's the low-oxygen/lacticacid buildup that breaks you down, rather than actual injuries.  The pain of maximum effort can be greatly eased by Fascia Buzz techniques used prior to an event.  The pain comes from your body fighting it's built-up resistance.  Therefore if you reduce the resistance, not only do you relieve the pain you also improve the time.  The trapezius of the upper back and shoulder, and often the lower back tend to be the most common complaints.  The hamstrings are also vital for forward movement so successive tightening does not develop which would result in shortening of the muscles and make them for susceptible to injuries from outside movements.

Six techniques are included in this package: abdomen, hamstring, lower back, neck, shoulders and upper back.

 

Tennis

Common stress areas for the tennis player are the arms and shoulders, the calves and legs, and the lower back.  The most frequent complaint in the arm is tennis elbow, and techniques in this package will deal with that problem in depth.  Also included will be calf spasms that appear to be endimc to the game.  Shoulders and lower back treatments are also included in this Fascia Buzz package.

Six techniques are included in this package: ankles, calves, elbows, hips/legs, lower back/hamstring shoulders and arms.

 

Weight Lifting

The most important difference between athletes who make the lifting of heavy weights their main concern and those who train with weights in order to gain increased strength for other fields of sports is the inclusion of flexiblity exercises.  Its obvious in observing movements that the person who does nothing but heavy lifting sacrifices a great deal of mobility in order to build a platform capable of holding tremendous poundages overhead.  There are two basic tenets of weightlifing that are paramount whatever your style and purpose.  Heavy weights and low reps increase muscle size and strength.  Lighter weights and high reps increase definition.  The techniques in this package focus on the arms, lower back, shoulder, neck and chest.

Six techniques are included in this package: chest, hamstrings, quads, shoulders, back, abs, and arms.
