Thanks for your input Thor. I’ve tried going over this trigger point with a massage ball I’ve got – it’s pretty solid like a lacrosse ball – but it doesn’t really seem to do much, whereas the foam roller is AGONY. I’m not sure whether I’ve got the technique right. 

The three different physiotherapists I’ve seen have all told me to foam roll. Out of interest, why do you not recommend a foam roller? 

It’s interesting that you mentioned dry needling as I’ve been considering trying it. I think I’ll definitely look into this further.
