      What options are there for back soreness? I love how voodoo banding can rapidly clear out swelling and inflammation and bring in fresh blood to a limb injury, is there any way to accomplish something similar with your low back? Do things like inversion tables or arching yourself over a ball/back stretcher work?

      Have you tried heat?
      I have a friend who sees improvement with back issues after being in their hot tub.
      A Marc Pro is another option. More info on it is here http://marcpro.com/mwod
      Post wod recovery is normalization of tissue through the
      movement of nourishment and waste. Marc Pro™ is specifically designed
      and excels at this particular task

      Also, if you watch the anti-ice video’s, you’ll notice that they mention the use of the lymphatic system to remove some of the inflammation.

      Get a Voodoo or resistance band and do some light back work. You can also do some glute work. This should help pump and activate the lymphatic system.
