The TRIGGin works where the pain originates - which in most cases is in one of the following areas:
The reasons for a strained neck or aching shoulder are often the same: lying in the wrong position, sudden movements or sitting slouched at a desk. The result is tension in the neck muscles. The trapezius muscle is affected particularly often. The corresponding trigger point is usually located far down and transmits the pain upwards into the neck and shoulder.
Be it mouse elbow, tennis elbow or golfer's elbow: With excessive or incorrect strain, it soon hurts. The places on the arm that can be treated with the TRIGGin are therefore diverse. Essentially, a distinction is always made between latent trigger points, which only cause pain when touched and pressure is applied, and active trigger points, which also cause pain when the person is at rest or moving.
Pain in the shin is particularly familiar to the runners amongst you. This is because the strain of running often hardens the front shin muscle, the so-called tibialis anterior muscle. Another localisation is the outer thigh. This is where the iliotibial tract is located, which is also a popular area of application for TRIGGin. The vastus lateralis muscle is located here, which is also a popular area of application for the TRIGGin trigger button.
