Trigger Point Therapy
While participating in your favorite activities, aches and pains sometimes occur. Whether you're a beginner or a veteran it's not always easy to know when to push through the discomfort and when to back off. Each time you return from a set-back, whether short-term or extended, you learn something new and gain more knowledge in how to deal with it. This learning process is vital to personal improvement. When the aches and pains occur, learn which muscles are tight and how to release them for decreased pain and better performance.
Conditions like IT Band Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, Shin Splints, Piriformis Syndrome are common. Learn to take care of yourself by creating elasticity in the muscles and treating the cause of a problem, rather than just the symptoms. Minimize the aches and pains that steer you off the path toward your goals. Have an edge in your training and performance.
Keep track of new exercises and ways to keep your muscles healthy by using Trigger Point Performance Therapy tools. All of these tools are available at Gallagher Fitness Resources. Descriptions and prices appear below:
