TriggerPoint™ – The Science of Myofascial Release

With Sylvie Patrick
For more than 10 years, the terms “foam rolling” and “self-myofascial release” have been used interchangeably. However, the application of foam rolling does not match the science of myofascial release. Examine the difference between foam rolling and myofascial release, and how to achieve “self-myofascial release” through practical application.

TriggerPoint™ – Foam Rolling: Rolling Pins to Vibration

With Brandon Wagner
Foam rolling research has increased 400% over the last 10 years, and while this research is still in its infancy, foam rolling is beginning to gain the attention of the scientific community. Review the history and origins of foam rolling, current research studies, and the practical implications of these scientific efforts.

TriggerPoint™ – Life After Foam Rolling

With Brandon Wagner
Mobility is a buzz word in the fitness industry, but when do you introduce it? What if the body needs stability instead? The body functions as a kinetic chain and if one joint can’t move, others move more, which is one of the primary causes of pain and injury. Learn to use TriggerPoint’s Myofascial Compression™ Techniques and dynamic stretching along with core, balance and reactive training to integrate the nervous system and walk away with a new approach to assessments.

TriggerPoint™ – Hip and Shoulder Mobility

With Brandon Wagner
The hips and shoulders are the most mobile joints in the body, but they often lock-up creating improper movement patterns and injuries. Normal functional activities, such as walking, require extension, exion, and rotation of the hips and shoulders. If this can’t occur, the nervous system alters the movement pattern. Learn to quickly identify these patterns and properly address with self- myofascial release. This advanced approach creates the myofascial relationships necessary to optimize movement, prevent injury and enable the body to perform optimally.

TriggerPoint™ – Injury Prevention & Better Movement

With Brandon Wagner
Injuries occur due to the muscles’ inability to tolerate demands placed upon them. See how you can make an impact on your clients’ biomechanical function and injury profile with Myofascial Compression™ Techniques (MCT). Developed by Cassidy Phillips, this method was created to provide an advanced approach to myofascial release. MCT improves the body’s ability to move efficiently as an integrated unit preventing injury and preparing the body to perform at its best. Unlock your body and release with MCT’s step-by-step program.
