Trigger Point Performance Therapy is a remedy and treatment for common ailments such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, IT band pain, general knee pain, foot pain and more.
Trigger Point Technologies started as a research project for Cassidy Phillips, who suffers from fibromyalgia. Phillips needed to find a solution for the continuous pain throughout his body.
The well-trained athlete spent years researching his condition and refused to settle with doctor's recommendations of never training again. During his research, Phillips worked heavily in trigger point therapy, which utilizes key areas of the body to release tension and create blood flow to the area. The therapy was working for him except that his thumbs were getting numb.
His solution was to find a material that mimicked the pressure and accuracy of a thumb. He needed a material with significant denseness that could change shape and manipulate to the muscle. Through two years of intense research and development, Phillips created Trigger Point Technologies, LLC. The company is based on a patented material that changes shape after five to seven seconds, thus penetrating the belly of the muscle safely and effectively when ample pressure is applied. Today Trigger Point Technologies, LLC, features four therapeutic products: TP Massage Ball, TP Footballer, TP Quadballer, and Baller Block.
The TP Massage Ball, TP Footballer, and TP Quadballer's dense materials mirror the feeling the human hand and change shape after five to seven seconds of pressure. Many use devices filled with air like a tennis ball, which will collapse and thus fail to penetrate the belly of the muscle; or using a device made of a hard material such as plastic or wood, which will be traumatic to the muscle and cause more damage. Trigger Point's therapy tools, the TP Massage Ball, TP Footballer, and TP Quadballer are able to penetrate the belly of the muscle safely and effectively. Once the pressure is applied and the user takes a deep breath, the trigger point of the targeted muscle is forced to relax, and the spasm is relieved. When using Trigger Point's Performance Therapy tools, three to five minutes of pressure within each muscle group is all that is needed. This treatment is recommended before and after workouts and races and prior to stretching. Athletes tend to overdo things. That's what gets them into the painful situation in the first place. Moderation is the key.
These products are not just for athletes; Trigger Point recommends using the TP Massage Ball, TP Footballer, Quadballer for anyone who wishes to relieve or prevent pain. This includes all active bodies and even office workers. Muscles become fatigued when sitting in front of a computer or working around the house. To energize muscles, Trigger Point suggests using their therapy tools often. Any stress on muscles cause damage. Stress can be from too much weight, like a laundry basket, or overworking the muscles without proper rest. The applications are the same.
The Baller Block aids in the effectiveness of the Footballer, while also achieving structural integrity. Treat the body within the home and it will only enhance performance during training, racing and everyday life.
