How does it work?
Trigger points are tiny knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked. They are defined as localized areas in which the muscle and connective tissue are highly sensitive to pain when compressed.
Pressure on these points can send referred pain to other specific parts of the body. Commonly a cause of most joint pain, Trigger points are also know to cause headaches, neck pain, lower back pain, tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome.
The Physio MAX has be specifically designed by Physiotherapists to relieve the muscular aches and pains associated with these areas. It can also assist with the restoration of motion to joints following injury.
Why use a Lockeroom Pocket Physio Max?
This tool is ideal for locating and releasing the deep, hard to reach muscles such as Glute Medius, Piriformus or TFL, that contribute to lower back pain when tight and restricted.
Because it is larger than a standard Pocket Physio it is most useful for deep muscle trigger release particularly Piriformus and Glute Medius and Minimus.
This size is recommended for athletes. Use the larger, Pocket Physio MAX for triggering deeper muscles by sitting on the floor and sliding it under your glutes or lying horizontally on a flat surface and rolling over it to release your hip flexors.
Comes with a simple guide to common trigger points. For a more complex overview and for recommended usage videos please visit our website.

I was less impressed still when this strange looking heavy lump turned up.
Still I persevered and then realised why it was heavy duty, it needs to be to bounce off the walls without damage when you throw it. Boy do you know when you get it in the right place, It hurts !.
Its just the right weight to be stable on the floor and the heavy duty rubber has just enough give to stop it bruising the skin whilst remaining rigid enough to do its stuff in the deep muscle.
All in all, it does a brilliant job at releasing those muscles as long as you realise this will and should hurt. I’ve been using it about three times a week for the last month and its helped with my breathing, the stiffness in my upper back and the tension in my shoulders and back. Its also helping with a trapped nerve in one arm.
To be fair the pain lessens as you continue to treat yourself and the muscles aren’t so solid, but every now and then your body will surprise you with a point that will make your eyes water and this rubber triangle fly !
Ive used it when im getting a migraine (mine are caused by my neck muscles and trapped nerves rather than anything else) and whilst it hasn’t stopped them, it has lessened their severity and shortened their duration.
Plus I get to throw it when it really hurts !
What more do you want from a product, its a wonderful torture device that I wonder how I ever did without, right size, right consistency, virtually unbreakable. Highly recommend.
I prefer the smaller pyramid for my knots as I can use my hands with it.
The concept is great and it works.
Expect a bit of pain.
Good for trigger point release and muscle scraping (I am a sports massage therapist and it saves my fingers)
Pink may not be the best colour on reflection - lol
With this tool I have spend hours in the last months exploring my painful spots and been able to relieve some of it. As my problems have been going on for years and I have very tight muscles, it takes my trigger points much longer than normal to respond to treatment, longer than any therapist can afford to spend on them. Plus, lying on the floor on this big version of the Pocket Physic, I have been able to really reach trigger points in deep lying muscles (quadratus lumborum), significantly better than any physiotherapist (most of them haven't even been able to locate these spots) or any other tool I have used before (different sized massage balls, foam roller, or the "normal" Pocket Physio).
Be warned, the pain is intense. It is no miracle tool, I personally need to spend a lot of time on it and use it on a daily basis. Experience, research and professional advice is necessary to find out where to use it.
I wholeheartedly recommend this product!
