What is it?
Muscle need regular maintenance to keep you performing at your peek. Seeing a therapist helps to relieve this tension and fatigue. But what are you doing between treatments to aid recovery?

By locating and releasing the source of the pain you can relieve the tight muscle and the painful area.
Why The Knob?
If you have ever tried using a tennis or golf ball for relief, you'll love The Knob. The Knob is superior to a ball because it has a stable base and nodule dimensions that replicate your practitioners thumbs and elbows.

How to use The Knob
The Knob can alleviate tightness and pain in your muscles in four easy steps
- 1. Locate trigger points of pain
On a flat firm surface locate the point you wish to relieve and place The Knob between you and the floor. If its your first time with self massage start on a mattress. Ask your heath professional to help you locate trigger points. Your hips and glutes are a great place to start for back pain, ITB tightness and loosening your hips and glutes.
- 2. Position The Knob on afflicted area
Once you have positioned The Knob in the area you wish to relieve let your body weight settle onto The Knob so that the pressure is transferred to the points that need attention. The trigger point will feel like a sharp pain or a dull ache when The Knob is applied. The pain will decrease as the muscle releases.
- 3. Apply pressure for approximately 30-60 seconds
Work on one trigger point at a time. Move onto additional muscles around that point to release the whole area.
- 4. Stretch the muscle of the area that is affected
By stretching and applying heat to the area will help assist the self-massage therapy. Finally, remember to use The Knob often; the more frequent your massages, the more beneficial the results.
