Has anyone else tried Armaid (www.armaid.com),
Last March, I partially tore my right bicep. It hadn’t fully healed before I started back with my normal training and climbing routine. I got into a cycle of partial recovery and re-injury and sought professional help to rehab my arm. The physical therapist I visited recommended I try Armaid. Apparently, it is common (if ironic) for massage therapists to develop chronic forearm issues. She saw a parallel to climbing injuries… I bought an Armaid at the beginning of September 2010 out of the pure frustration; I couldn’t climb. I was blown away by the results. I found more knots and sore spots in my forearms and elbows than I could have imagined. I used Armaid to break-up the scar tissue in my right bicep and released all the muscle tension around my elbows.
Armaid allowed me to start train and climbing again. Armaid enabled me to get back to climbing and flash Magnum Opus (yes, I know it's soft) and Super Best Friends by November 2010.
As I haven’t seen any other climbers using anything like Armaid, I was so impressed by the product I contacted Terry Cross the inventor and told him the above story. I told Terry about the climbing community and the RRGCC and he has agreed to make a donation to either the RRGCC or the Access Fund whenever a climber buys an Armaid. He is adding the donation buttons to his website. If the button isn't up yet please send him a note of you are a climber...
I am continuing to use armaid as part of my post training warm down.
Quit whining. Drink bourbon. Climb more.
