Theracane Trigger Point Therapy Self Massager
TREAT YOURSELF TO DEEP RELIEF FROM PAINFUL, KNOTTED, SPASMED MUSCLES – EVEN IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR BACK!
Theracane, 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, Thera-Cane is a patented design that gives you all the reach and leverage you need!
Pressure on the trigger point deactivates it, although the exact mechanism is not known. Measurements of sensitivity pre and post treatment show a decrease in pain, reports by the patient reveal the referred pain pattern is not present after successful pressure has been applied, and often the patient will demonstrate an immediate change in range of motion. Diligent use of the Thera Cane to perform the pressure techniques, therefore, is critical in early and effective management of the trigger points. While the patient reports that the decrease in referred pain is the desired outcome, as a therapist specializing in sEMG for 10 years, I recognize the reduction of muscle dysfunction as the primary benefit. MPS is a movement disorder, and the trigger points “fuel” the muscle dysfunction that develops. Early intervention reduces the potential of a chronic movement disorder developing, with one or several prime movers no longer functioning.
The Thera Cane 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 Thera Cane 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 Thera Cane with you.
WHO IT HELPS
Although the Thera Cane may appear to have the greatest application with soft tissue (muscle pain), the tool has also been helpful to patients with arthritis, stroke and spinal cord injuries. Anyone who moves in a compensatory movement pattern has altered the biochemical stresses on joints and muscle. These muscles are then vulnerable to MPS regardless of the original injury or disease, Elimination of the muscle dysfunction in an arthritis patient may reduce their pain to very manageable levels, even though the underlying disease process has not been changed. In short, the Thera Cane can be used by anyone, anywhere, anytime they want to reduce pain and discomfort. Patients like the independence, payers like the cost reduction and most of all, the patient is put back in control.
Everyone has 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. Everyone has 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 Thera Cane you can apply deep pressure massage to the back, neck, shoulders, legs, hips, arms, buttocks, anywhere and everywhere.
- Do not use the Thera Cane to attempt treatment of serious medical ailments or injuries.
- Consult with your medical practitioner for treatment of any medical condition and before initiating any therapeutic massage or excercise program.

- Do not press directly on or against the spinal comumn or sciatic nerve.
- Avoid massaging areas of inflamation.
- Discontinue use if bruising occurs.
- Do not allow children to play with or use the Thera Cane.
Ease your aches and pains without hiring a professional masseuse with the Theracane massager. The 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 muscle areas. The TheraCane massager works by adding pressure to the muscles, which helps maximize the flow of oxygenated blood. This pressure aids in restoring muscle function by breaking up adhesions in muscle fibers and tensions, thus making the muscle work more efficiently. It’s the perfect tonic for a recurring injury, a long day on the job, or an active afternoon in the garden.
The Theracane is a deep pressure massage cane which can be used to gently massage tender points in the muscles. You can easily massage any part of your body by using one of the six strategically placed projections. A minimal amount of arm movement and gentle pressure is all you need for effective treatment. Each Theracane comes with a fully illustrated 14 page instructional manual. The Theracane weighs one pound and is made of durable, fiberglass material.
