This funny looking tool puts the power of a trigger point therapist in YOUR hands! The Thera Cane is a self- massage device uniquely designed to apply pressure to sore muscles and trigger points anywhere on your body.
What is a trigger point?
Trigger points are tender spots that develop as a result of muscular injuries, strains, and trauma. When muscles, ligaments, and tendons become weakened, overstretched, or inflamed, tiny tears in the soft tissue can occur. As the tissue heals, it contracts, becoming twisted and knotted. These knotted fibers restrict the blood supply needed by the muscle. To protect itself from further injury, the muscle "learns" to avoid pain and guards against it by limiting the muscle's movement. If not treated effectively, a cycle of increasing pain, muscle spasms, and loss of function can occur and develop into a chronic condition.
How the Thera Cane Works to Relieve Pain
Pressure on a trigger point helps deactivate it, although the exact mechanism is not known. Most likely, the massaging effect performed using the "Cane" helps relax the knotted area, normalizing blood flow to the muscle.
Who It Helps
The Thera Cane can be used by anyone, anywhere, anytime they want to reduce pain and discomfort. A program of heat or ice, gentle stretching and exercise is often recommended in addition to use of the Thera Cane.
The Thera Cane uses two strategically placed projections and six treatment balls to help relieve pain. A gentle, manually applied massaging action is all that is required. The two longer rods can be used to provide leverage and an increased mechanical advantage when the Thera Cane is used on the neck or upper and lower back. The owner's manual illustrates a variety of ways to use the Thera Cane effectively over the entire body.
