Trigger Point Therapy - Sciatica
by Judith Winer on Jan 04, 2016

When we analyse the traffic through our clinics at the end of each quarter, sciatica seems to be always up there in the top ten. There are probably two good reasons for this. The first is that sciatica is one of those conditions where the pain can be extremely severe. The second, is that manual therapy has long since been recognised as being effective for providing relief, even by most medical doctors. In fact, any therapist familiar with trigger point therapy will tell you that they're always upbeat going in to treat sciatica, as the effects of the therapy are in most cases, extremely positive. This is something that has been reaffirmed in a number of studies.

Joshua Daubin is a studio and touring musician living the dream in Nashville, Tennessee. Being an in demand Drummer and an equally gifted professional Photographer means constant motion and a steady hand nearly every waking moment. All that repetitive arm movement creates built up tension in his shoulders and upper back.

Rust Belt Runner Reviews Products

By Pressure Positive September 15, 2014 No comments

Holly is the Rust Belt Runner and she has taken some time to review some of our massage tool products. She says she uses the Tiger Tail during her recovery time.
While many athletes use a variety of approaches to improve recovery time, self massage remains a favorite among athletes. A recent study of massage used to treat delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) suggests that massage applied 20 minutes after a heavy workout alleviates some of the DOMS from that workout. And while several theories have been proposed to explain why we get so sore two days after a heavy work out, none of those theories are universally accepted and none have been unequivocably proven in scientific studies.
In the meantime and while we wait for decisive scientific proof, thanks for the anecdotal evidence, Holly.
