The Trigger Point Massage Panel that comes with the Lumbar Extender Plus Back Stretcher is also available separately. It contains 10 thumb tip-shaped nodes on each side of the spinal cradle. You use this panel instead of the plain one to benefit from Trigger Point Massage. Similar to Shiatsu (Japanese for “finger pressure”), trigger point massage is a type of alternative medicine for pain relief, consisting of finger and thumb pressure on the trigger points on the skeletal muscles of the body.
Repetitive trauma to those skeletal muscles from the stress and strain of daily life, may lead to the development of stress on muscle fibers and the formation of trigger points. Muscles needed to maintain correct body posture, such as those in the neck, shoulders, and pelvic region often develop trigger points. ----and trigger points are painful. Because of this, persistent regional pain may develop causing a decreased range of motion in that area. Trigger point massage and stretching help release tension and muscle tightness, providing prompt relief of symptoms, such as lower back pain or sciatica.
Combining the stretching benefit of the Lumbar Extender with the Trigger Point Massage effect of the pressure point nodes on the Plus panel makes this device even more beneficial. Since the usual time needed to release and inactivate trigger points is approximately 2 minutes, that works perfectly with the recommended time of using the Lumbar Extender for 5 minutes, twice a day.
Ordering the Trigger point massage panel to complete your Lumbar Extender Back Stretcher will allow you to enjoy an important additional benefit while stretching. Order one from Back Pain Magic today!
