Sports Massage Demo 1: Quads- Improve Leg Muscle Performance, Athletic Tune-Up Austin

Sports Massage Demo 1: Quads- Improve Leg Muscle Performance, Athletic Tune-Up Austin In this video, sports massage therapist, Ron Vaughn, explains why loosening muscles in the legs (specifically the quads and knees) is important to improve performance and to ensure safe exercise with limited injury. The quadriceps and knees in this video and in future videos will address the hamstrings, glutes, and other muscles surrounding the knee and affecting performance. Ron also explains how continued exercise on tight muscle can lead to pain or discomfort in the lower back, butt, legs, thighs, and core muscles. He demonstrates a unique technique for relaxing the quad muscles and provides instruction that other therapists may find useful. Ron graduated in 1997 from Austin Schools of Massage in Austin, TX, and also has a Bachelor's degree in Exercise & Sports Science from Southwest Texas State University (a.k.a. Texas State University of San Marcos). Ron's knowledge of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, health & fitness and his experience in athletic training, sports & recreation give him a unique style of sports massage. Ron uses Swedish massage, hydrotherapy, deep tissue, Myofascial release, and trigger point, (ROM) range of motion, stretching, and strength exercises to correct soft tissue dysfunction. Overuse of injured muscles may often create problems and imbalances in the soft tissues, which may become chronic if ignored.
