What is a trigger point?
Trigger points are irritable points within a muscle that can generate muscle pain, tension and sometimes referred pain. Trigger points can be felt as a tight band within the muscle and are generally caused by muscle overuse, poor posture and sometimes trauma.

Cool - How do I use a Hold Strong Trigger Ball?
1) Find a trigger point by positioning the muscle over the trigger ball. You can do this Standing, lying, sitting or leaning against a wall. Which ever position is going to be more comfortable and allow you to relax as much as possible. You are going to feel some immediate discomfort and sometimes referred or radiating pain. Don't freak out - this is normal. It will only suck for a while.
2) Hold for as long as you can - Aiming for 1-2 minutes. You might feel a muscle twitch response, wait for the muscle tissue to release. You can feel it relax and soften under your skin. The muscle pain may just simply being to decrease. As a guide, the pain should recede after a minute or so.
3) Once the muscle tension releases and the referred pain starts to dissipate, either go deeper into the muscle or move the trigger ball to the different neighbouring points until surrounding and support muscle pain and tightness has reduced.
