OVERVIEW

Quadriceps

QUICK VIDEOS

By Part of Tool

WIDE

Useful with light to moderate pressure to cover large surface area.

NARROW

Useful for focused work, but not the most common part of the tool for this area.

ROUNDED HEADPIECE

Great for deep pressure, static compression, and deep dynamic compression.

Key Takeaways

  • Commonly an issue in knee pain and anterior hip pain.
  • Many athletes are ‘quad dominant’ and overuse their quads because they need posterior chain strengthening.
  • If tight, can cause anterior pelvic tilt and therefore lumbar over-extension.

Precautions

Avoid bony prominences at the proximal and distal attachments.
