One patient today was suffering from pain in their foot which started in their heel and referred down to their big toe. Upon palpation I felt many trigger point’s in the arch of the foot. I performed STM and muscular energy technique to deactivate the trigger points and reduce the pain. My placement supervisor (who is a qualified Sports Therapist) has completed a course on Rock Blades and used this during the treatment to get deeper into the tissue for a more effective treatment. I had never heard of the Rock Blades before but it is something I would be interested to complete a course in after I graduate as it appears to be very effective.
