I loathe going to the doctor, but was beginning to think something was seriously wrong. I had been contemplating making an appointment, when I was browsing in a sporting goods store and came across The Stick. The label on it said to try it, and I did. Rolling this thing on my neck was not particularly pleasant, but OH THE RELIEF. And I'm talking instant relief. I only used The Stick for maybe three minutes in the store, and on the car ride home I told my husband, "Oh my gosh! I think I'm actually starting to feel like a normal person again!" I immediately went home and ordered The Stick on Amazon.
I cannot tell you how thankful I am to have found this thing! I was in crippling pain and now, less than a week after rolling my neck every night, I feel great. No more pain, no more headaches.
I am definitely going to continue to use this everyday to keep myself loose and prevent my neck from killing me again! I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow and my Stick is packed in my suitcase.
This also feels great on my legs after a run! Well... I should say, the actual rolling part is rather painful, but afterwards the results make me feel so much better!
UPDATE: Comparing to Gaiam similar product, the Gaiam has different texture rollers but the center stick does not bend or flex at all. The texture is painful at time to use and I miss the flex of it compared to THE STICK. These more flat rollers for THE STICK work just fine, the texture is not necessary.

I initially bought the travel stick for DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) as I'd seen plenty of great reviews on YouTube, so that was a given. But where it really came into its own for me is for it's trigger pointing properties.
I'm an ultra runner and though I now stretch regularly, when I was a kid I thought stretching was a waste of time. So surprise, surprise I had an unhealthy amount of scar tissue in my calves, particularly the left one.
When I first tried the stick on my left calf it was agonising, but after 3 weeks of using it daily (about 2 or 3 times a day for 5 mins - schedule it in during advert breaks) I have no pain in my calf!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My favourite technique is putting the stick on the carpet and then resting my calf on top and rolling myself over it (only try this after a few days, it hurts more!)
The only downside is I bought the travel stick, which as a plus is really portable, but makes rolling your upper back quite difficult without someone else to help.
The original stick is quite a bit longer and therefore you can do it by yourself!
Anyway, I hope this review helps someone! And remember if you're unsure, it still costs less than one physio session! (And I've paid literally thousands to crappy physios!!!)
