Can TriggerPoint help my running?

In the world of running, all you need are a good pair of shoes and an open road. The first thing people neglect is the body. We continually do things and take things to allow the body to cover up the pain we go through. But have you ever stopped to realize that all the medicine or bandages in the world may never address the problems that cause the symptoms? Eventually, you may have to stop doing what you love because you are too focused on the now rather than a lifetime of running.

We at Trigger Point Technologies believe we are creating the oil for human performance. Think about it: When you run out of gas in a car you can easily refill it and still get to where you need to go. If you run out of oil in a car, the engine will stop, lock up, and it is very difficult to get it back into operation.

If you look at the human body the same way, you can always replace the food (fuel) to give you energy, but what happens when your muscles loose their elasticity. They start to adhere together, and movement becomes painful, biomechanics are diminished, and you have to stop training. Then, it is a long road to get your body back into operation.

Racecars get their oil replaced every time they go out on the track. This is to ensure the engine performs at its highest level. If you rejuvenize the muscles with elasticity by force-feeding blood and oxygen into the center or belly of those muscles, the result is added power, better performance and injury prevention. Your muscles are able to withstand a longer level of activity without breaking down. If muscle health is so important, why is it always the last thing to think about?

If you manipulate the muscles in the manner that we at Trigger Point Technologies have defined, you will be a more biomechanically sound runner and a more efficient athlete. As a runner, you might be the fastest or the slowest, but you are still putting an enormous amount of effort into it. This defines you as an athlete, so treat your body as such. Make sure you get plenty of sleep, your electrolytes are high, your nutrition is proper, and that you are removing the toxins set within the muscles. We believe that by manipulating the muscles on an everyday basis, you are going to be a better athlete because you are giving your muscles the attention they deserve.

Below is a list of muscle manipulations we believe will make the difference between your personal best and your personal defeat. If achieved before and after you run, your body will feel more active versus reactive. An active muscle you can depend on; a reactive muscle is unpredictable. This is going to allow you to run forward rather than up and down. Up and down is a waste of time and effort; forward will get you where you want to go.

Muscle Manipulations

I) Start with the soleus muscle located just below your calf. Use the TP Massage FootBaller to manipulate this area and elevate with the Baller Block. Remember to keep your foot relaxed and to take deep breaths. If you do not incorporate proper breathing, the manipulation will not work. This manipulation should last 2 to 3 minutes on each leg. For best results, perform this treatment especially before a run.

II) The second area that you want to address is the quads, specifically the rectus femoris and the TFL. The best way to manipulate these areas is to use the new TP Massage QuadBaller. It allows you to use your own body weight, not your hands, to create the desired elasticity. The manipulation should take a few minutes on each leg. Don’t forget to breathe deeply. By doing this manipulation, you are going to allow your pelvis to seat properly on your hips. Otherwise, once your pelvis starts to tilt the IT Bands, hamstrings and lower back become reactive versus active.

III) If needed, address the piriformis. This is the pain in your butt. When your piriformis is in spasm your stride is shortened and any pelvic tilt is intensified. When manipulating this area use the TP Massage Ball in the buttock cheek, hold for 3 to 5 seconds and take a deep breath. Then raise the associated knee outward and upward towards your shoulder. The manipulation should last about 30 seconds.

This is a very helpful way to keep you running day in and day out. Whether it is a race or training day, the results are amazing. For more specific information please visit the "Injury Prevention section on our website to educate yourself so you can BE your potential rather than just desire your potential
