|TP Performance Foot and Lower Leg Kit|
The Trigger Point Performance Foot and Lower Leg Kit is just what you need if you are a runner, walker, cyclist, or you just want the benefits of a great massage in the comfort of your own home. This kit was designed to give you the tools you need to specifically massage and manipulate the muscles in the lower leg and foot. The Foot and Lower Leg Kit is the package we recommend for anyone experiencing aches and pains in the the following areas: Plantar Fascia, Heel, Achilles Tendon, Arch, Calf, Shins, Soleus, Metatarsals, etc...
The kit has been put together to consist of all the tools necessary to go through the detailed How-To section as well as the REGEN Class in the Foot and Lower Leg Instructional DVD. The instructional DVD is included in the kit to show you exactly how to use the tools effectively and efficiently.
You can't forget that every bone has a muscle that surrounds it and every joint has a muscle and a tendon that supports it. So when it comes to massage, don't you think it's time you do it everyday?
The Foot and Lower Leg Instructional DVD
The Foot and Lower Leg DVD in this kit includes a detailed How-To section lead by Cassidy Phillips, founder of Trigger Point Technologies, that answers questions about pace, placement, breathing, posture, duration and much more. The DVD also includes a 20-minute Re-Gen Class, which is very similar to a yoga class in feel, that you can follow along with to make sure you are doing the manipulations as we suggest.
Biomechanical Education DVD
Our Foot and Lower Leg Biomechanical Education DVD takes you through all of our education we provide for people experiencing Foot and Lower Leg pain. The DVD will talk about what the body goes through on a daily basis and how it affects biomechanics. You will also find tips for success within this DVD to give you pointers on hydration, icing, stretching and other things we do or need to worry about daily. A sample of the education we cover in the DVD is below.
Day-to-day activity can take its toll on the body. Whether it's training for a triathlon, marathon, sporting event or just general work activities, your body and its biomechanics are continuously being compromised. The way you sit, stand, run, and drive affects the way your body will function through movement. Being that your foot is the foundation for your body, it's important that you massage the muscles that control the foot effectively and efficiently.
It's important to understand that your foot is a puppet to the muscles in the lower leg. The muscles surrounding the calf region all connect in the bottom of the foot, so when these muscles get tight they are going to pull from their insertion points and potentially cause injuries to occur.
According to the Journal of Bodywork and Movement therapies, Trigger Point and Myofacial Release Therapy can relieve muscular aches and pains in association with the areas discussed. They can also assist with the redevelopment of muscles and/or restore motion to the ankle joints.
