trigger points feet
The next important area for trigger points is the foot or the soles of the feet. Problems often arise here, especially due to the constant wearing of shoes and the frequent understrain of the foot muscles or their one-sided strain in everyday life. The soles of the feet can be treated with either the flat attachment or the pointed massage head. The massage heads intended for the trigger point massage of the sole of the foot are located in the middle of the upper or lower hook of the massage rod. While the flat massage head is ideal for flat complaints, you can use the pointed attachment to eliminate punctual complaints.
TRIGGER POINT MASSAGE OF THE SOLE OF THE FOOT
Place the massage stick on the floor by placing it on the hook and resting on it with your arms. Position the sole of your foot on the massage head and search for trigger points with light to moderate pressure. Start with the flat massage head. You can easily increase the pressure by shifting your body weight forward. Work the entire sole of the foot from the heel to the ball of the foot in this way.
Another possibility for the targeted treatment of a trigger point is the trigger point massage while standing. To do this, hold your foot on the pain point, lift your leg from the floor and extend it forward. Make sure that your knee is stretched and extend over pressure on the sole of your foot by pulling with your arms on the upper hook of the massage stick.
