Like some the other reviewers here, I bought this because of the high customer ratings. I sit at a computer for 8 or more hours a day, and I think the arms-in-front position causes some of my back muscles to get stretched out, and thus sore.
I've tried several products to get relief: heat pads (not as good as a hot shower), massaging wands (have to lay on it to get enough pressure), rolling shiatsu massager (fixed positions of the rollers mean I can't get the pressure where I want), massage therapists (perfect therapy, but expensive!), and cajoling my wife into rubbing the sore spots. My wife heard my interest in this cane because it's something I can do for myself any time and massage exactly the spots I want with the pressure I want.
I admit to playing with the Theracane for a while before reading the accompanying manual. The manual is a definite bonus because it comes up with ways to massage everything from your neck on down! Getting a "cane" for my birthday made me feel a little older, but as those sore spots tend to stick around a little longer, now, this will definitely help speed up the recovery!
Anyways, you want to use this cane in a manner that goes in the opposite direction of the muscle. Example: the muscles in your legs run vertically so if your problem is in this area, then you should find a position on the floor where you can extend your leg and use short strokes horizontally on the trouble spot. Pull a little bit like you would when you stretch then release. You have to probe around to find where the spot on your body is where the fascia is crosslinked. If this is what the problem is then you will know because it is almost painful when you pull it at first in the opposite direction. Work at it a few nights a week, not too much at first. Best done when the muscles are warm(after a shower or use a hotpack) then stretch out the area The muscle can't be stretched properly without breaking these crosslinks.
After you break the crosslinks you need to stretch EVERY night to make sure that the muscles don't crosslink again, especially if you have a job where you sit down all day. In as little as a week they can start to re-form.
I have done a lot of personal research on the web because I wasn't getting very many positive results from any of the professionals that I saw. I worked on myself and now I have no more of that nagging pain that use to run down my right leg.
I also sit on a towel covered rolling pin in my car to relieve the pressure in the back of my upper thighs and it has helped tremendously.
It worked for me...might work for you also. Goodluck!!!
I purchased this in January 2014 and received a GREEN version that BENDS EASILY. This means I have to pull down much harder to be effective. It doesn't work nearly as well, and honestly I don't think it would last if I travel to races with it. I thought it was a fake, but it says Thera Cane on it and the theracane.com website shows a green version. I think I will return this and try to get an older version on eBay.
-handles positioned so you can keep pressure on a spot while rubbing
-is in the shape of a "hook" so virtually no spot is out of reach
Intended for those who need to regularly massage out tense areas in the muscles, it's a very useful tool- and cheaper than therapy! Also recommend Treat Your Own Spinal Stenosis if you suffer from chronic back pain.
