TheraCane is a self massager used to apply pressure to sore muscles. The unique design of the TheraCane lets you apply deep pressure massage to hard to reach areas of your body on your own.
TREAT YOURSELF TO DEEP RELIEF FROM PAINFUL, KNOTTED, SPASMED MUSCLES – EVEN IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR BACK!
This amazingly simple yet effective self-massager makes it easy to apply pain-relieving deep compression directly to hard, knotted “trigger points” anywhere they occur – breaking up tension even in the hardest-to-reach muscles between your shoulder blades! If you have limited strength or mobility, TheraCane’s patented design gives you all the reach and leverage you need!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Pressure applied to the muscles by the TheraCane helps to maximize the flow of oxygenated blood to the muscles. This pressure aids in restoring muscle function by breaking up adhesions in muscle fibers and tendons. The increased circulation helps the muscle to work more efficiently.
The TheraCane provides temporary relief from muscular tension, stiffness, tenderness and soreness. It’s simple to use and it puts relief where it belongs, in your hands. The personal involvement necessary for using the Cane leads to an increased desire to take more responsibility for one’s own health. Using the TheraCane regularly will put you in touch with your body, closer than you’ve ever been before, not to mention putting you in control of minor muscular aches and pains. You are never alone when you have your TheraCane with you.
We all have muscles that occasionally get sore. It might go unnoticed until we reach for something, or bend over. Sometimes a twist or turn is all it takes. This might produce a crick in your neck or a hot spot between your shoulder blades. Either way it can hurt and it just won’t seem to go away. We’ve all tried rubbing the muscle to make the pain lessen. However, it’s hard to get in deep enough, or do it long enough, maybe you just can’t reach the spot on your own. With the TheraCane you can apply deep pressure massage to the back, neck, shoulders, legs, hips, arms, buttocks, anywhere and everywhere… and we show you how.
- While applying adequate pressure slowly move the ball back and forth across the trigger point. A gentle wiggle helps to burrow into the muscle.
- Press directly on the trigger point and hold for five to ten seconds, release and repeat a few times. It is advisable to avoid this technique for the front and side of the neck muscles since this area is very easy to overdue (use your fingers for these areas). This method is more suited for areas of thick muscle mass and only after becoming familiar with your own pressure limits.
- A systematic approach regardless of the technique used will heighten your awareness and give you the best results.
THE THERACANE WAS DEVELOPED by a chronic pain patient to help relieve his own discomfort resulting from neck surgery and a herniated disc in his back. By using the TheraCane along with a daily stretching routine he has obtained long lasting relief.
