Trigger point therapy with The Bum Wrap

The Bum Wrap combines a hot/cold compress with adjustable therapy balls in an adjustable wrap to target and relieve trigger point pain. Our ceramic clay compress has a semifluid consistency, ensuring uniform distribution of heat without compromising the therapy balls ability to deliver pressure right where you need it most. This combination of heat and pressure releases muscle knots and provides more blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients to the affected area.

 

How The Bum Wrap works

Muscle Knot Diagram

The Bum Wrap is designed to work out trigger points: the constricted knots in a tight band of muscle that restrict circulation in knotted muscle fibers. As pressure and heat is applied to a trigger point, the body begins to release the knot and slowly relieve the pain and tension in the muscle. Successful trigger point therapy typically requires repetitive treatments… if possible 2-3 times a day until the trigger points are eliminated.

 

Trigger points and referred pain

Referred Pain Diagram

Often several different muscles send pain to exactly the same spot. The goal is to target the right area and then apply sustained pressure to that area on a regular basis. For maximum benefit, enough pressure should be applied on the point of tenderness to make it “hurt so good.” Aim for a 5 on a pain scale of 1–10.

Pain from this trigger point may refer into the lower hip and/or down the backside of the thigh and leg.

Using The Bum Wrap

Lie down on a carpet or mat, place a pillow under your head, bend your knees and place your feet flat on the floor. Breathe deeply, relax, and let the heat comfort you and increase circulation for 5–10 minutes.

Is The Bum Wrap useful in treating sciatica?

Sciatica is a pain caused by the compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve. The Bum Wrap is an excellent tool to combat the aches and pains of myofascial sciatica. Some types of sciatica are the result of skeletal issues and in those cases The Bum Wrap would not provide a long term solution. Please consult a physician or qualified therapist if pain persists following the trigger point therapy directions.
