Maintaining joint mobility is an essential part of pain-free movement and physical performance.
Trigger points are tiny knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked. They are defined as localised areas where the muscle and connective tissue are highly sensitive to pain when compressed.
Pressure on these points can send referred pain to other specific parts of the body. Commonly a cause of most joint pain, trigger points are also known to cause headaches, neck pain, lower back pain, tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome.
If you’ve ever been to a Therapist who’s used their thumb or elbow to apply pressure to a muscle to locate and treat the source of your pain, you’ve had Trigger Point Therapy.
The Pocket Physio is a simple, hand held trigger device for relieving the tension in a tight muscle that causes pain. It’s density and physical shape is designed to replicate the pressure of a Therapist’s thumb or elbow.
The most common cause of tight, shortened muscles is poor recovery following periods of strenuous activity, like playing sport or extended inactivity, like sitting at a desk all day. Keep a Pocket Physio handy!

Watch Physiotherapist, Cameron Lillicrap demonstrate how easy it is to locate and release one of the most common areas of muscle tightness that causes lower back pain
Both sizes work in the same way but the small one is easier to hold in your hand so is most commonly used for muscles in the shoulder, forearm, knee and foot. Use the larger, Pocket Physio MAX for triggering deeper muscles by sitting on the floor and sliding it under your glutes or lying horizontally on a flat surface and rolling over it to release your hip flexors.
