Thera Cane

By Sean | In Recovery | on April 6, 2011

As many of you may already know, in order to keep our bodies performing at its best we have to perform regular maintenance on them to break up adhesions that may form, restore range of motion, and to keep the sliding surfaces sliding properly within our body. In past posts we’ve introduced several tools to help our recovery like lacrosse balls, foam rollers, and ice but today I’d like to introduce another tool to put in your recovery toolbox, the Thera Cane. Despite resembling a weapon, if used correctly the thera cane can do more good than harm. The thera cane is excellent for deep pressure massage, and the beauty of it is being able to do it yourself adjusting the tension according to your feel and sensitivity. The company offers some different ideas for how to use the thera cane but “informative freestyling” is where I’ve found the thera cane has a lot of added benefits. Just ask fellow Intrepids Stephanie or Mike who have been using the thera cane for some time now, or Ruth, Xuan, Jake, and Avelyne who recently purchased canes for themselves. If interested in purchasing a thera cane for $32-$34, please contact Intrepid’s own recovery expert Stephanie. Having the ability to reach those tough spots on your back and neck make the thera cane a great investment in your performance, overall health, and quality of life.

    So true, the thera cane is probably my favorite recovery tool…Nick and I fight over ours all the time.

    Speaking of recovery tools, has anyone tried the ProStretch tool for your calves? I tried one the other day and I really liked it.
