|TP Hip and Lower Back Performance Kit|
Our Hip and Lower Back kit is the ultimate package to massage and maintain the muscles around the Hip and Lower Back areas. This kit is what we recommend for anyone having aches and pains in areas such as, but not limited to, the: IT Band, Knee, Hamstrings, Piriformis, Sciatic Nerve, Lower Back, Psoas, Quadriceps, Hips, etc...
The Hip and Lower Back kit consists of all the tools you need to conduct the massage manipulations that we outline on the Hip and Lower Back Instructional DVD. The instructional DVD is included in the kit to show you exactly how to use the tools effectively and efficiently.
It has been put together to consist of all the tools necessary to perform the How-To and Re-Gen sections of the Hip and Lower Back Instructional DVD. The tools are the same great tools that we offer in all of our kits. 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?
Hip and Lower Back Instructional DVD
The Hip and Lower Back Instructional DVD that is included in this kit includes a detailed How-To section, lead by Founder Cassidy Phillips, that answers questions about pace, placement, breathing, posture, duration and much more. The DVD also includes a 30-minute REGEN 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 Hip and Lower Back Biomechanical Education DVD takes you through all of our education we provide for people experiencing Hip and Lower Back 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.
When the soleus and calves tighten, they reduce dorsal flexion of the foot, forcing your quads to take the absorption of each step when you run or walk. As your quads become overworked and tight, your TFL and psoas also become overworked as well. Your psoas connects the front of your body to the back of your body when it gets tight, it compresses the lower back. This can cause your pelvis to tilt, resulting in IT band problems, lower-back pain, and muscular challenges in other areas.
Massage has been found to be a great way to counteract the effects of poor biomechanics. Myofascial release refers to the manual massage technique for stretching the fascia and releasing bonds between fascia, integument, and muscles with the goal of eliminating pain, increasing range of motion and equilibrioception. Myofascial release usually involves applying shear compression or tension in various directions, or by skin rolling.
Trigger Point Performance products are specifically designed to support the massage associated with Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release Therapy and other forms of massage therapy.
