Advantages of Trigger Point Technology
Point Technologies (www.tpmassageball.com) is a company
that is Empowering people to take control of their
athletes that suffer from Plantar Fascitis, IT Band
Syndrome, Knee Pain, Lower Back Pain, and Shin Splints
take time off from doing what they love only to find that
once they start training again the pain is still there.
That is why Trigger Point Technologies decided it was time
to put the power of therapy into the individual’s hands.
is my goal to educate people to understand the difference
between a problem and a symptom. I want you to take an
active part in your recovery. It’s hard to find the time
and money to get some form of therapy twice a week. But,
as an athlete, this is what you should be doing at a
minimum”, says Cassidy Phillips, owner and founder.
Point Technologies has revolutionized personal therapy by
providing Seven Days of Treatment for Seven Days of
Training. The TP Massage Ball, FootBaller and QuadBaller
mirror the feeling of an actual human hand. Along with
these effective and easy-to-use products, TPT educates
with a DVD that shows you how to use the products in
motion as well as proper biomechanics to prevent and treat
injuries. Their website goes into greater detail about
products were created so that I could take care of myself.
Years ago, I was told that I had a dysfunction called
Fybromyalgia. I have been doing triathlons since I was 10
years old. The two didn’t mix very well. I tried
everything under the sun to remedy the situation. There
were things along the way that would work for a day or so
but nothing would last for any length of time. It was then
that I realized not only did I need to understand what was
going on with my body, but I also needed treatment on an
everyday basis. This is why our products mirror the
feeling of a human hand. If massage works so well then why
not have therapy everyday?
So that’s what I created…your own personal
massage therapist that you can carry around and use
a taste of their education:
debilitating injury felt in the bottom of the foot, heel,
ice on the bottom of the foot and take time off.
actually causing it? The Posterior Tibialis (lower calf/soleus area) attaches in
the arch. With every step you take, you loose muscular
elasticity in the lower calf area. This is where you get
your power. It is what allows you to push off your toes
when you run and drop your heel on the bike. Once you have
a muscle spasm in the Posterior Tibialis, it will then
pull on the insertion in the bottom of your foot, hence
the SYMPTOM…Plantar Fasciitis.
treat it? Roll
your lower calf/soleus by using the FootBaller along with
the Baller Block. Roll very slowly for 3 to 5 minutes
before and after a workout. You must relax your foot and
take a deep breath for it to work properly.
