It is possible and worthwhile to treat your own trigger points. The Ther-a-Cane and Backbuddy are two commercial products designed to treat trigger points. You can also use a tennis (or other slightly soft) ball, or your hands. Experiment to find what’s most comfortable for you, and use the resources listed below to learn effective, safe techniques. Foam rollers can help relieve trigger points, but are often not specific enough for full relief.
