Triggerdinger vs. Faszienrolle (Myofasziale Triggerpunktbehandlung)
What others say
For some time now, the term fascia has been widely used in the vernacular. Interest in the structures that run through the body is growing, and more and more people understand that limited mobility can be caused by stuck fasciae. The term fascia is derived from the Latin word "fascia" (bandage, ligament) and strictly speaking refers to connective tissue. Fasciae are part of the musculature and are located around the muscle, but also around muscle bundles, joints and cartilage. Due to the special properties of fasciae, tensile strength on the one hand and elasticity on the other, they provide support and protection to the body. Fascia gives tension and through them a supply of the muscle takes place. The fine-meshed network of connective tissue fibers is a coherent construct and can be found throughout the body.
In order to understand the phenomenon of a trigger point, we will first go into the term myofascial. It is composed of the prefix myo-, from the Greek for "pertaining to the muscle," and the word fascial, which refers to the fasciae, or connective tissue structures. Together, then, it refers to pain that is triggered by a disruption of the muscles and surrounding fascia. We can say that trigger points are thickenings in the muscle and fascial tissues. So, thematically, we would have made the connection between fascia and trigger points. Causes of such hardening can be stress, poor posture, lack of movement and overload. The body tries to compensate for these stimuli with tension. It becomes firm and causes pain. The tension relationship changes, which in turn can cause imbalances that affect the entire body.
Triggerdinger special features
The great advantage of Triggerdinger over other fascia tools is the selective treatment of the relatively small trigger points. While rollers and balls massage the muscles and surrounding fascia over a large area, trigger things can target and deactivate hardenings due to their special shape.In particular, smaller muscles are reached directly, such as the piriformis or shoulder muscles embedded in bony structures.Furthermore, it helps you to apply a sufficiently long pressure on the point, since for many who want to do it themselves, the strength of the thumb is the limiting factor.In addition, when performed optimally (see blog posts on trigger explanation and instructions), there is an alternation of contraction and relaxation of the treated muscle, which allows pressure to be applied even more intensely and consequently increases blood and oxygen supply.
Triggerdinger are also practical due to their compactness, so they fit into even the smallest handbag. In addition, they convince with slip resistance due to nubs on the bottom and durability due to the high-quality material and its processing.
