  2. Hi, Im constantly placing my body under great stress, by cycling long kilometres and more than regular hardcore weight sessions at the gym, im wondering what products you have that can help me maintain on top and injury free. Thanx

  3. H I have been using Trigger Point Hip Kit to help repair damage done years ago. I have been using TPT for about 2 months before working out and post and my hips have recovered fully. I have not had any problems to date. Thanks Trigger Point

  4. Hello. I have Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome, where I have trigger points in the soleus, tibialis posterior, and in the feet: adductor halliucus and quadratus plantae. I used to perform in sports at a high level in biking and also enhjoyed hiking long distaneces.
    I did buy the footballer, block and ball and am using it, but wonder as I see much of your site and info is devoted to atheletes, triathaletes, olympians. Do you know of myofascial pain and do you have many customers who use your products who are people with this disease that have found success with these items? I wanted to know if you would focus more on people with myofascial pain and the usefullness of your products on your website or blog.
    thank you,
    Jessica

  5. Hi,
    I have chronic myofascial pain syndrome like Jessica and am wondering the same thing. Life is hell. My pain is in my neck, shoulders and upper back.
    Thanks,

    • Nicole,

      Thank you for reaching out to us.

      In regards to your condition and the pain you are dealing with, Trigger Point Performance Therapy products and methodologies were actually designed by Cassidy Phillips shortly after he had been diagnosed with the Fibromyalgia. It became his personal mission to understand muscular structure and the regeneration of dysfunctional muscle tissue. Through his research, Cassidy felt there was a void in the homecare component of treatment. Trigger Point products are designed for athletes and non-athletes alike. He created Myofascial Compression Techniques (MCT) to address the muscle spindle and the associated dysfunction such as trigger points, adhesions, and other muscular challenges. This process also retains the pattern of movement by opening up the neurological pathway allowing greater muscular proprioception.

      An individual with fibromyalgia will use the product in much the same manner as you do. There is a “trigger points chart” in the left-hand tool bar menu of our website at http://www.tptherapy.com. You can reference this site to see numerous other trigger points throughout the body and areas that can be targeted when using our products. You also may find our educational DVDs to offer even further insight regarding proper placement, pressure, and techniques for using Trigger Point massage therapy tools.

      Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.

  6. Finding your website is an answered prayer! I am a certified personal trainer with specified training in human movement and SMR. Many of my clients are either aging, post op/rehab or special populations. Why I never get the person looking to “just tone up” I guess is a higher calling. At any rate, I prayed hard to find a program that would extend my education and enhance my current knowledge base as well as provide resources and tools for my clients that they could use at home.

    I look forward to reading your blogs and staying connected! Be blessed in your service!

  7. Anyone have exercises that will help lower back pain as well as abdominal pain on the left side?

    I just purchased 2 of the therapy balls.

    Thanks

  8. Killer products. We backcountry and nordic ski a ton all winter and are avid trail runners and climbers in the summer. Your foam roller gets the job done 100%. Thanks!

  9. Can this help 2 areas the achilles and the rotator cuff, I am a 61 year old athlete who is being slowed down by these problems. Right now I have to use an elliptical rather than running. Can your product help? Do you need any more info. from me? I am looking forward to your response because I am thinking of purchasing it and giving it a try.

    • Absolutely! I strongly suggest getting the U6+ Kit with instructional video. These products also allow you to properly roll your body to allow it to function the way it was designed to function.

  10. My son Drew is 15 years old. He plays soccer and basketball year around. He is having foot pain on the outside of his heals that radiates up the back of his calf. Do you have a product that could help? We have the grid and we love it! Thanks

  11. I had a trigger points consultant come with work the UNCW Women’s Soccer Team, and it was a great experience. It is defininately something I want to keep doing!

  12. The emphasis of your products and eductioin seems to be on the lower body. I have chronic myofascial pain across my upper back and shoulders. Would any of you therapy products and educational materials address this area of the body?

  13. have been using your products for years… recreational runner with 32 marathons and 1 ultra marathon under my belt. Any thoughts of introducing these products to the US Army? I work at Fort Campbell, KY….

  14. Hello. From long distance running I have developed what seems to be a myriad of conditions in my right hip/groin – hip bursitis, adductor tendinitis, hip joint fluid accumulation and thinning synovial lining. This has now become chronic, and ironically got worse after “conventional” medicine and physiotherapy. Osteopathy, which is what I tried initially, provided better relief of pain. About to order the hip kit, but am also afraid that the inflammation is too great for any trigger point therapy. Do you have examples of positive results with these kinds of conditions?

    • Hello there. TP products can’t be used on Bursitis. Tendinitis and hip joint fluid are derivitaves of improper muscle function. The muscle’s job is to product and absorb force. When muscles fail to do their job, the force must go into tissues not designed to aborb the force (tendons, ligaments, fascia, discs, bone, joints, etc). TP products help restore muscles to proper function, except in cases of contraindication. You can apply our products to the areas in which there is no bursitis.

  15. Thank you for your reply. I got your hip and groin kit, and have started using it. Your website recommends a short 7-10 min daily session and a longer once per week 30-60 min session. Another place, I see a recommendation to work each of the key 6 areas 3-5 minutes. That would make a daily general session 18 minutes or more. Is the recommendation for a 7-10 minutes daily session a recommended minimum? Could 15-30 minutes per day do damage to a new user even if used conservatively?

    • The daily suggested use of TP products is as follows:

      Rollout immediately prior to exercise. This is designed to prep the tissue for exercise. Hitting the ultimate 6 areas should take about 7-10 minutes. Roll out about an hour after exercise. Address the U6 + areas. This should take about 20-30 minutes.

      We hope this helps!
