M S K flossing

Instant & lasting results by the  Selective Rapid Compression System (SRCS)

 

Flossing associated with manual therapies or exercise enhances the mechanical forces applied to the tissues and the fluid dynamics with prompt & robust lasting therapeutic effects in the Neuromusculoskeletal System.

 
The benefits of compression have long been known in healthcare, from the operating room to the locker room and beyond.
The effects of functional movement have long been known in musculoskeletal healthcare just as well.
Until now, no one guessed how powerful a combination these two make.
Flossing as it has been traditionally applied, from its beginnings in strongmen competition to the more recent crossfit culture is useless in healthcare.
MSKflossing changed that. 

The System

The complete MSK flossing  Program by the Likewater Institute encompasses the full series from Basic, Sports & Exercise, Manipulative & Advanced Certifications.

 

The MSKflossing System includes the Method, the Educational Programs, the Flossbands and the Support System to the trained practitioners.

What Are Flossbands?

Flossbands are the tools to perform MSK flossing for nearly the entire body: the extremities, the torso, and even the head.

MSK flossbands  can be made of Latex or Latex-Free material and vary in width, thickness and length according to the required use. MSK flossbands are designed, manufactured and distributed according to MSKflossing rigorous specifications.

THE RIGHT GRIP

MSKflossbands are chemically perfected for user controlled adherence, providing for the exact surface grip necessary for the desired flossing to be achieved. Our selection of tensional strengths for different populations, from the frail rehabilitative needs of the elderly or acute injuries of the young all the way to the Pro Athlete training. Our specific dimensions allow for proper flossing of the different body parts, from the smallest finger to the large torso, and the different body types, providing finesse and accuracy from ectomorphs to endomorphs.

AN ENGINEERED SYSTEM

Much more than simply "elastic bands", our flossbands are engineered according to specific tensional strength requirements and graded by our proprietary color system to deliver the results you need.

Safely.

Effectively.

Quickly.

MSK FLOSSING IS THE MOST SPECIFIC SYSTEM OF

MUSCULOSKELETAL FLOSSING EVER

 
  • Length:          30cm to 300cm
  • Width:           2.5cm to 7.5cm
  • Thickness:      1.1mm to 1.7mm
  • Chemistry:     Latex (soon Latex-FREE too)
 
Make habit of two things: To help. Or at least to do no harm.
— Hippocrates

CAUTION: the use of flossbands (flossing and flossbanding) presents inherent risks. Proper instruction is required and should only be performed by trained individuals or under trained professional supervision. Risk and contraindications must be avoided in when applying floss bands: improper use of flossbands or flossing may result in loss of limb, loss of live or other serious health risks. Flossbands are not to be utilized for tourniqueting. MSKflossing  is not tourniqueting.

Do not use flossbands without proper training.
