The Stick has become a standard training device at each level of every sport.  Pre-activity stretching of muscle, without hyper-extending the joint, is a benefit beyond measure in certain sports.  Post-activity use of the Stick enhances and accelerates muscle recovery, which leads to elevation of performance.  Professionals report that strength , flexibility, and endurance occur naturally with release of the myofascia and inactivation of offending trigger points.
