EMMETT Technique for Roller Derby Athletes
Maintain flexibility & balance
Manage pain & injury
ROLLER DERBY ATHLETE : Ms J sustained an injury to her ankle during roller derby training and was using crutches for an extended period of time. During her recovery, Emmett technique was used to ease the initial pain in shoulders and forearm from using crutches as well as maintaining flexibility in the muscles of the injured leg.
Following full recovery from the ankle fracture, Emmett treatment was again used to assist with balanced use of muscle groups with the aim of increasing performance and minimising the risk of further injury.
If you are a Roller Derby Athlete – whether you are just starting out or have been playing for some time – you may want to consider using Emmett Technique for the following:
- Pre competition adjustments
- Balancing the work of core & abdominal muscles
- General stability and balance
- Breathing problems
- Restricted / Tight Hamstring, quad and calf muscles
- Painful / restricted ankles and feet
- Improving flexibility
- Injury prevention
- Recovery after injury
- Post competition recovery
