New York, NY (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
Leading physical therapy firm, Manhattan Physical Therapy, announces the release of its new article detailing the stories of professional athletes who have found success with Redcord, entitled “Runners, Cyclists, Gymnasts and Other Pro Athletes Using Redcord to Treat and Prevent Injuries.”
As explained in the article, “Runners, Cyclists, Gymnasts and Other Pro Athletes Using Redcord to Treat and Prevent Injuries,” now on the Manhattan Physical Therapy website, the Redcord system is optimal for professional and amateur athletes alike, and it relays a few success stories for the reader.
As the suspension-based exercise program Redcord grows in popularity, professional athletes are giving their endorsements and talking about what Redcord has done for them. From the article: “‘I have been using suspension training with Redcord for almost two years, and the improvements I have seen in the performance of all athletes are surely not only based on water training. I’ve recognized an improvement in all high technical parts of stroke cycles, starts and turns that are mutually dependent on proprioception and power,’ said Sandra Bassot, a notable swimming coach in Italy.”
According to the article, Redcord does not just help athletes with training—in fact, the Redcord NEURomuscular ACtivation (Neurac) courses are excellent at preventing and treating injuries so that athletes can be up and competing in minimal time. “Stephen Seiler, Professor in Sport Science at Agder University College, remarks, ‘Five years of investigating Sling Exercise Training, both with controlled studies and numerous case observations, has convinced me that SET with the Redcord™ system is a fantastic neuromuscular training tool that every athlete should have access to for rehabilitation, injury prevention, and direct performance enhancement. I do not know of a better training method for first identifying functional weaknesses and then improving them with targeted, intensity optimized exercises. The result for the athlete is a neuromuscular system that is better prepared for battle, on the field or court.’”
The Redcord program is ideal for all athletes—runners, gymnasts, and swimmers, among many others, have found success with Redcord. As Sandra Bassot, renowned swimming coach in Italy, commented in the article, “I have been using suspension training with Redcord for almost two years, and the improvements I have seen in the performance of all athletes are surely not only based on water training. I’ve recognized an improvement in all high technical parts of stroke cycles, starts and turns that are mutually dependent on proprioception and power.”
