John Dunham- PGA Golf Professional, Director of Instruction Highland Golf & Country ClubAccording to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, nearly everyone at some point has back pain that interferes with work, routine daily activities or recreation. Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on low back pain, the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work.
In other words, if you experience back pain, you are not alone.
Causes of back pain run the gamut. Age is, of course, one of the most common reasons. Injury from lifting more than you should. Degenerative conditions such as arthritis and disc disease, or osteoporosis. Obesity, too little exercise and, conversely, too much exercise. Long-distance runners are particularly aware of the havoc that miles of pavement pounding can wreak on the lower back, which in turn has neurological repercussions with muscles in our legs, often quite significantly.
Whatever the genesis of your back pain might be, incorporating the exercises and Therawheel into your doctor- or physical therapist-recommended treatment can speed recovery and provide back pain relief.
SEE FOR YOURSELFTherawheel Core is simply the most targeted, effective and convenient product on the market today to speed the recovery of athletic injuries. Almost every athlete deals with some type of low back pain during their career. Roll the narrow portion of the wheel in multiple directions to penetrate deep in to the large erector spinae muscles. For deeper release of low back, place Therawheel Core on the large lower back muscles. Gently move low back side to side to mobilize muscle.
The wheel’s patent-pending tapered design allows you to have targeted, localized treatment that you simply cannot achieve with other products.
EASY TO USE
Because it goes in any direction, you can work muscles in ways that make them more pliable. Its versatility allows you to use it on any body part from neck to feet while standing, sitting, or lying down. With the Therawheel Core you achieve deeper tissue massage, while also having the ability to control the intensity by selecting which width of the wheel to use. Both its weight and wheel size are important factors in its effectiveness. At 1.75 lbs., Therawheel provides a completely therapeutic experience while being easier on the users hands, as the weight of the product replaces previous manual effort. And the wheel’s 4.5” circumference provides deeper massage of large muscles like hamstrings, quadriceps, piriformis and lower back.
INNOVATIVE, EFFECTIVE RELIEFTherawheel is an innovative advancement in sports therapy developed by Tom Jennings, MED, ATC. Jennings, a former assistant athletic trainer with the Indiana Pacers, came up with the Therawheel concept initially as a way to assist professional and college athletic trainers and clinicians to more effectively treat their athletes and clients while minimizing the stress on their own hands as they treated injuries. After researching and experimenting with different iterations, Jennings landed on this solid, versatile product which can be used by professionals in treatment settings, as well as by athletes and individuals themselves to speed their recovery.
