Customer reviewsEffective, if you dare
I bought this because my aging knees sometimes hurt. A couple of people said it s because my IT band is tight. I know jack squat about anatomy, but ok. I started rolling my IT band outside of each thigh using softer rollers. This can hurt, but you can get through it if you know how to relax your muscles and breathe through the pain. In time, it gets a lot easier. Then a trainer at my gym recommended trying their green trigger point roller, which is not like this one. She was like, If you dare So I dared, and it was even better. Then my problem got worse, and my massage therapist poked into my IT band with her jackhammer fingers. That helped a little bit. She then told me to roll my IT band 3 times per day for the rest of my life. I figured I needed my own version of that green Trigger Point roller at home. But then I saw this wicked looking black and red thing that Trigger Point sells, and I m like, Yeah, that s the one. I can handle THAT So it arrives pretty quickly Amazon Prime , and I go to work on it the same day - 10 reps each thigh. Holy cow, that hurt. BUT, my knee pain disappeared. Over the next week, my thighs turned yellow from bruising and felt kind of tender, but my knees were fine. I haven t used it in a few weeks, but my knees are still great. So, drawing upon what physical and massage therapists told me, I think this roller scrambled the crap out of the myofascia in my thighs and restored normal function to my knees. I ll do it again in a heartbeat if my knees act up again.
