Interview with Toño Cartón

"While you practice sport you do not always realize if you are strained or not, and it is when you get home when the discomfort starts. The main advantage of 3TOOL is that you can always take it with you and stop the contractures before they advance more."

Toño Cartón is a Physical Activity graduate, physiotherapist and one of the captains of the Aragón Handball team, which competes in the ASOBAL league, the highest category at national level.
Good morning Toño, first of all, we would like to know, how did you get to know 3TOOL?

It was a physiotherapy colleague, Pablo Herrero, who lent me several prototypes with different hardnesses and densities for me to give him my opinion.

What is your opinion on the use of 3TOOL?

I think it is a great idea. Up until now, I used to carry a tennis ball with me in my car to alleviate the pain of contractures and it is clear that this tool designed by specialists means an important development .

CAs a professional handball player, what do you think 3TOOL can provide you?

While you practice sport you do not always realize if you are strained or not, and it is when you get home when the discomfort starts. The main advantage of 3TOOL is that you can always take it with you and stop the contractures before they advance more.

There will be people who see you as a professional player and think that 3TOOL is not for the ordinary citizen, what would you say to them?

That the majority of our contractures are not caused by physical exercise but by the lack of it. Sitting in an incorrect position or not controlling stress usually activates our points of pain, and having 3TOOL handy can be of great help.

Which uses of 3TOOL, as a sportsman, have you found more interesting and in which areas?

Areas of difficult access, without doubt. There are days when it is even hard for me to sleep and so I usually place it beside the scapulas and lie on top of it to relax myself. I also use the flat edge with a bit of cream or massage oil to relax the lateral side of the muscles.

To conclude, and taking into account that besides being a professional player you are a physiotherapist, would you recommend 3TOOL to people who regularly suffer muscle contractures?

Of course. And not only for those who suffer muscle contractures, it can also become very useful if you have tension in the fascia latae or to treat plantar fasciitis. I always take it in my rucksack.

Many thanks for your attention Toño.
