Self-Myofacial Release (Foam Rolling)
Trigger Point Performance Therapy was founded on the principle of empowering people to take care of themselves. In life we all place demands upon our body that can impact our physical well-being. Whether you spend hours bent over a desk each day, pounding the pavement on long runs or pushing your body to the limit in high-impact or endurance sports, this repetitive motion and overuse can lead to adhesions in the muscle that become painful and often lead to injury. If adhesions and tightness in the muscle are not addressed through myofascial release and stretching, the body will compensate and additional tension will be placed on another muscle. This chain reaction can lead to decreased range of motion and performance from the muscles you use to perform every day.
Myofascial Compression Techniques (MCT) is a unique form of Self Myofascial Release that applies compression with TPPT tools to dysfunctional tissue while taking the distal limb through a range of motion resulting in increased blood flow, tissue pliability and optimal length tension relationships.
This frees the body from muscular dysfunction allowing the tissue to tolerate the demands being placed upon it while restoring biomechanical efficiency through muscle elasticity and fluidity. With consistent use and by following TPPT's systematic approach your body will become biomechanically efficient, able to perform the functional movements of everyday life and sport without pain.
