Trigger Points Can Occur in any Muscle

December 17, 2007

Trigger points can occur in any muscle. Remember that every person is unique, and that you are the best judge of your pain and discomfort. Regular use of The Original Backnobber II tool can help you better understand the source and nature of such problems and can be an exceptionally valuable aid in your pursuit of a healthy, pain free lifestyle. The guidelines listed below can be followed when using The Original Backnobber II tool on any muscle in the body.1– Isolate a trigger point by pressing firmly with your fingertips or The Original Backnobber II tool over a specific part of the neck, shoulders, upper, middle or lower back, buttocks or thighs.2- When you feel a hard knot (like a lump) or soreness, apply pressure to determine the level of tenderness in the area. Some sensation of pain is to be expected from the pressure; although for many people, this sensation is quite pleasurable and satisfying. Experiment to determine a tolerable level of pressure.3Once you have located the trigger point and know how it feels, you’re ready to begin using The Original Backnobber II tool. As you become more accustomed to detecting trigger points on your body and how to apply pressure, you can begin immediately with The Original Backnobber II tool instead of performing the preliminary search.

4- The Original Backnobber II tool can be hooked over the shoulder or under the arm. Apply direct, steady, pressure to the trigger point in the muscle.
5- Pressure preferences vary widely among professionals and patients alike, but for many, pressure can be effectively applied for between 5 and 30 seconds. It often takes time for muscles to begin to “trust” the pressure, so the first 20 seconds may be a mere beginning. In general it is best to start slowly and gradually increase pressure as desired following your own best intuition and feelings.6- Apply pressure firmly to the affected muscle. Move along the muscle band at one-inch intervals. Stop and apply longer or deeper pressure to any knots or lumps as you work. Although almost any pressure on a muscle will usually have some releasing effect, it is best to apply pressure along the entire muscle from one end to the other, in approximately one inch intervals, and then stretch before moving onto another area.

7– Harmony and balance between both sides of the body are vital to achieving proper posture and function. It is best to work both sides of the body, just in case any pain is referred to the other side after being “detriggered.”

8- Remember to breathe! Sit back, relax and take some deep breathes both before, during and after using The Original Backnobber II tool.


9– Specific concentration on breathing can enhance the desired results of the trigger point technique. Take a deep breath and begin applying pressure as you exhale. Continue deep breathing as you perform this trigger point technique.

10- In addition to using The Original Backnobber II tool, paying attention to healthy lifestyle habits may also produce noticeable and desired results. Drink plenty of water, participate in physical activity at least 30 minutes a day, eat properly and get plenty of sleep. As you notice improvement in function and movement, you may also find yourself relaxing and enjoying life more than ever before!The Original Backnobber II tool is a wonderful gift.

Soft Knee Braces have great Support Benefits

October 25, 2007

Soft braces or “sleeves” are made of stretchable material such as synthetic cloth material or neoprene. Soft braces are designed to be either pulled up to fit around the knee or strapped into place using velcro or another similar method.

Soft braces have the benefits of being easy to use and easy to care for. They function by giving the knee a small amount of support. This support may be more of a function of proprioceptors (nerves that provide feedback as to orientation in space) around the knee than it is of actual knee stabilization since cloth or neoprene are not stiff enough to restrict motion.

Neoprene material is known to provide the highest heat retention and insulation of any material. Unlike elastic braces which can stretch only in two directions, neoprene braces can stretch in four. Neoprene’s unique characteristics allow it to support your knee without bunching up and maintains its shape. Neoprene usually lasts longer than standard elastic braces. Many athletes use this type of brace in cold weather sports, such as skiing and ice skating.

Dr. Robert Molloy, an orthopedic surgeon at Cleveland Clinic, said a knee brace is a device that is worn around the knee to provide support and reduce excessive loading on a damaged joint. The simplest type of brace is a one-piece sleeve made of an elastic rubber — neoprene — that fits snugly around the knee area, which is available at Medex01.com.

Some of the goals of the Ace Neoprene Knee Brace are :

Increase activity
Stabilize kneecap
Decrease anti-inflammatory medications
Decrease pain symptoms
Improve knee function
Provide warmth to knee
