TriggerPoint Performance Therapy (TPPT)
Understand the strain on the Achilles tendon and the patella tendon. Biomechanical challenges and weight distribution issues along with different types of exercise can really torque the Achilles and patella tendon forcing aches and pains to occur in the surrounding areas. Joints cannot maintain structural integrity if the tendons that support the joint are compromised.
Follow along with the programming to help address the issues of the lower leg restrictions we discussed last week. Begin with advanced MCT for the soleus then progress to self-administered tissue mobilization for the lateral ankle, peroneals, up to the bottom of the knee.
Using Myofascial Compression Techniques to address the powerful quadriceps is becoming an everyday routine for athletes of all levels around the world. But, what about the connective tissue that ties those powerful quads in with the capsule around the knee, the patellar tendon, and what influence does it have on the integrity of the knee? Follow along in our continued discussion about the relationship of the Myofascial connections of the ankle, knee, and hip.
In this last of our three part series on lower body connective tissue dysfunctions, learn three ways to maximize hip mobility. By regaining natural motion in the hips, the muscles will be able to fire at the right time, increasing stability and control of the entire leg.
In this edition of Trigger Point Tuesday, learn how to use 2 TP Massage Balls to address the hard to reach area of the deep posterior compartment. This technique will increase mobility through the lower leg by targeting the soleus, the flexors of the toes, the posterior tibialis, and the unique tissues that separate them.
