All throughout my football career — from high school, through college, and now professionally — I’ve witnessed the impact of injuries on my friends and teammates. I’ve seen athletes get drawn into a system that too often prioritizes short-term solutions by treating symptoms instead of causes — resulting in more frequent injuries, impaired long-term performance, and even athletes' inability to maintain an active lifestyle.
About 2 million high school athletes are injured annually, requiring more than 500,000 doctor visits. College athletes are similarly susceptible to injury — with 70% reporting playing through injury at least once  — and over 1 million adult amateur athletes experience sport-related injury each year . It shouldn’t be that way, and I decided many years ago that it wouldn’t be that way for me.
At the core of the TB12 method is our belief that injury prevention and wellness through pre-hab is achievable and necessary for athletes and active individuals. If injuries occur, we believe that there are faster, better, and more sustainable ways to recover than traditional rehab. The key is in complementing traditional strength and conditioning training with muscle pliability. Pliable muscles are softer, longer, and more resilient: they help insulate the body against injury and accelerate post-injury recovery. Exercises developed through the TB12 Method utilizing pliability enhancing products like the TB12 Vibrating Foam Roller and the TB12 Vibrating Sphere enhance pliability in critical muscle groups. The TB12 method complements that pliability work with the right exercises, proper nutrition, hydration, gear, and cognitive exercises that work together to lower injury rates, speed injury recovery, and help you stay at your best.
