The videos below have been created to show how the TMT can be used to aid treatment of the lats, serratus anterior and subscapularis muscles.
This video shows how a therapist can use the TMT when treating the lats.
Note: When using the TMT in the lateral border of the scapula, take care not to press into the nerves and vessels which can cause numbness and tingling sensations in the fingers. (If in doubt seek a qualified therapist for advice.)
This video shows how the TMT can be used for self-use when treating the lats.
It is important to stretch after treatment. The video below outlines the various stretches needed when treating the lats.
Caution Before Stretching
Warm up prior to stretching.
Hold stretch for 15 - 30 seconds and breathe normally.
Only stretch as is tolerable.
Prior to each use, please make sure the TMT has been checked that it is safe to use. That it hasn't developed abrasive or sharp edges on the surfaces that are making contact with the body.
The roller ball sections may not be suitable for patients with a mass of body hair.
Please make sure that your hands, the TMT and Cap are wiped dry of any creams to be able to benefit from gripping the TMT, with or without the cap on or to prevent losing control of the TMT while being used during treatment.
Due care and attention must be exercised when handling the TMT, as to not accidentally drop the tool over the patient or child whilst using the TMT. This may result in serious injury. This product is not intended to be used by children.
Care should be taken when cleaning the product, especially when cleaning the cream reservoir where the parts are separated
