      Does it matter which order one does mobilization in? For example, is it better to Floss and Smash, then do Joint Distractions. I read Becoming a Supple Leopard and I don’t remember this being a thing. Although, my physiotherapist has indicated that it is. Also I saw a youtube video on Hip mobilization that said that was a better idea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RU8K3UAF_JA&t=5s. Wonder your thoughts.

      Before a workout band distraction.
      The band specifically focuses on the joint capsule, which is the shrink wrap that surrounds the joint and can cause
      significant restrictions.

      Save soft tissue work to post workout or before bed.
      Kelly speaks to it here.
