We all know how effective treating myofascial trigger points can be to alleviating pain, dysfunction and help  improve function, especially with athletes. But did you know that you can keep the treatment process going, long after your clients leave your clinics?

Over years working with Olympic athletes, Stuart Hinds has developed unique trigger point taping techniques which are simple, safe, and incredibly effective. The techniques utilize kinesiology tape in such a way as to allow for an unloading to the vascular, nerve and the fascia, to help the rehabilitation process to continue between trigger point treatments. 

These techniques are invaluable for all manual therapists and bodyworkers who are involved in the sports medicine arena, or treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunction.

Scraping, a manual, ancient practice where pain points are worked with a gua sha (smooth-edged tool), reportedly increases blood flow by up to 400 per cent more than foam rolling and massage guns. By breaking up old, damaged blood vessels to promote new growth and healing, these tools are useful for getting into the nooks and crannies of a pain point, especially in delicate areas like along the shin muscles and under the foot.

Tim Tian has taken the scraper idea and supercharged it, creating a manual, triangular tool that blends heat and vibration therapy. “Cold blades stiffen muscles, blocking a deep release,” he says.

The heated scraper device takes just three seconds to reach 50ºC. This helps muscles soften, making it easier to massage away tension, increase blood flow and promote healing. The scraper is specially great for alleviating delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) in the quads, and provides a relaxing switch-up from the foam roller slog.
