This is one of my favorite ways to treat muscle problems. The massager is a durable construction with fiberglass with nylon reinforcement. It detaches for easy carrying. The ergonomic design takes advantage of leverage so you can easily apply great pressure with little force. The kit comes with a docking accessory to use the cooling, fast acting and all natural pain relieving gel. It will also hold your own favorite 3 or 4 ounce roll-on pain reliever. This allows application to those hard to reach areas, like the neck, upper back, shoulders and lower back with ease. It also includes a nicely illustrated 36 page instruction booklet, showing you how to master muscle therapy anywhere you need. Made in U.S.A
The docking accessory takes treating your own neck and back to a brand new level as it seamlessly merges with the massage tool and all natural cold therapy gel analgesic pain reliever into one amazing self-care system. The muscle massage kit allows you to be the therapist as you easily apply tension relieving active release pressure. The cold therapy gel is a safe and effective pain relief topical formula in a deep penetrating aloe base. The docking accessory easily and quickly secures to the larger end of the tool with a flexible silicon strapping system. Now, instead of asking someone or straining to reach, you can apply the cooling, deep penetrating topical formula and then massage or use deep pressure to treat muscles.
For treating your own muscles with the therapy kit, this cooling formula is great. The formula is a unique blend of 6 natural plant extracts along with menthol, capsaicin and witch hazel. It is a fast acting, pleasant formula without staining or being greasy – perfect for using the massage tool for more superficial or deep pressure therapy after application. It reduces swelling, cools the skin and has a refreshing lemon aroma. It uses a professional strength menthol, USP 6.0% with no artificial colors, fragrances or alcohol. The aloe leaf juice makes it great for the skin and reduces irritation. It also has green tea leaf extract, grapefruit seed extract, lemon peel oil, rose flower water, and yucca root extract.
The topical formula should not be used more than 3 times per day. Apply to the temples for headache relief. Treat tendonitis by applying, then massaging for 15 to 20 minutes. You will be surprised how effective this method is. Great for pain between the shoulders, rotator cuff syndrome, upper thoracic spine muscles, and neck muscles. Techniques include lying on the floor as well for increased pressure application.
The booklet will show you how to treat trigger points. Many muscular aches and pains are affected or even caused by trigger points that are left untreated. These points are local tender spots in the muscles. Understanding and treating these with the muscle therapy kit can lead to effective and lasting pain relief. Trigger point therapy is a crucial part of managing acute injuries and chronic pain. Some doctors will do injections for these. In many cases, arthritis and disc bulging is associated with these taut bands, knots or trigger points in specific neck muscles. Now, you can do massage, myofascial release and deep muscle therapy more efficiently than ever, as well as treating trigger points; all by yourself.
Muscle Therapy For Chronic Neck Pain
Compression of these tender areas is an effective massage therapy and can provide immediate relief from chronic neck pain. A 2002 study in the Archives of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation found that the compression therapy in treating trigger points offers an alternative treatment using either low pressure for longer duration (90 seconds) or high pressure for shorter durations (30 seconds) for immediate neck pain relief. By using the cool gel prior to treatment, the muscle therapy kit allows a less painful experience when treating tender areas.
Muscle related neck pain is often related to myofascial trigger points in both the the neck and shoulder muscles. These hypersensitive areas have been found in clinical studies to be more prevalent in chronic neck pain patients. Maintaining chronic pain has been shown to be related to processes in the brain and autonomic nervous system. A 2017 study in Frontiers In Neuroscience indicates that trigger point compression was effective for significant relief of chronic neck pain. The mechanism of relief was determined to be via activity of the the prefrontal cortex and autonomic nervous system.
A 2017 study in the Clinical Journal of Pain found that neck pain patients with active trigger points in the upper trapezius muscle had greater intensity of neck pain, higher levels of disability and a lower threshold of pain to pressure.
A 2017 study in the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation found that patients with neck pain responded to myofascial release, a type of muscle therapy, by lowering the threshold for pain. Specific muscle therapy applied to the upper trapezius and suboccipital muscles proved significantly better than electrical nerve stimulation, ultrasound and basic massage.
Myofascial release techniques can be used with the muscle therapy kit by moving the pressure along the muscle and/or holding pressure and moving the head or body part through a range of motion. This can be done both deep and superficially. Using the topical application can allow for better gliding during treatment. The fascia covers the muscles and can be infiltrated with scar tissue. The scar tissue fibers can trap small nerves and shorten to produce pain. Treating these areas can release nerves and lengthen the fascia, thus inproving pain and motion range.
In another 2017 study in the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation it was found that massage to patients with myofascial pain syndrome resulting in tension type headaches. Again the areas treated were trigger points in the upper trapezius and suboccipital muscles around the neck and upper shoulders. The authors indicated the great capacity of treating trigger points to decrease pain.
While chronic pain usually displays active trigger points and myofascial pain that has become hypersensitive over a period of time, acute or recent pain, can also form trigger points. A 2015 study in the European Journal of Pain found that treating trigger points for acute low back pain. They proved compression directed at myofascial trigger points was more effective for improving pain, disability and motion than treatment directed at areas without trigger points and superficial massage. Treatment was 3 times per week for 2 weeks.
Using The Kit
Using the muscle therapy kit, you can actively treat conditions that may not have responded to other treatments. The kit gives you the power to treat yourself anytime and anywhere. The leverage gained by the massage tool means you can treat any muscle with ease and without strain. Use the topical for additional pain relief, to help with massaging or gliding motions, as well as to reduce pain after compression treatments. There is almost no limit for ways to treat muscles. The book has detailed illustrations and instructions, then you can experiment on your own with different techniques; standing, sitting, lying down, along with compression, motion and combinations of gliding with more or less pressure.
Myofascial therapy was a main part of my practice. Using the muscle therapy kit is a main part of my own therapy. On technique I like is to treat a muscle with a combination. First, I use the topical, massaging it in lightly for a minute or two. Then, let’s take the levator scapula muscle; it runs from the neck to the shoulder blade and is often found with a stiff neck, especially when waking in the morning. If it is the right side, after applying the topical, I do compression to a few areas where there are trigger points; it’s pretty easy to find on yourself. Then I apply pressure at the top of the neck and bend my head to the left and rotate slightly to the left. While doing this, I allow the tip of the tool to glide down the muscle with more or less pressure. Four or five passes of the muscle with increasing pressure like this is enough. I then apply more topical in a similar fashion as the treatment with light pressure – basically stretching, and I can really feel the decrease in pain and the area loosening up.
Another technique is treating the upper trapezius with a combination of compression and motion. The upper trapezius is an area that frequently maintains trigger points. It is the muscle that runs along the top of the shoulders. Take the left side. I do not initially use the topical. Apply deep pressure to a trigger point downward, the bend your head to the right. Do the motion slowly. This holds the rigger point while you move the muscle under it along the length of the muscle. This helps to re-align scar tissue and I feel it is more effective than compression alone. After treatment, I then use the topical to apply directly to the area(s) treated.
