Have you have experience a muscle knot in your upper back area- if you could reach it and place some pressure on the area, you would get some relief. Too many times this happens. Painful trigger points could be in your upper back, midback, neck or lower back.
There is a device called the Theracane Massager that can help to reach difficult areas of pain. It works by adding pressure (that you apply) to muscles and increase oxygenated blood flow to the area. The pressure that you apply helps to loosen up the muscle by breaking up adhesions in individual muscle fibers.
One of the best places I found that this works wonders is in between the shoulder blades, in the upper trapezius muscle and in the shoulders at the top.
You can use the theracane at home, or at work. I would recommend that you apply an ice pack right after using it, especially if you use a lot of pressure on the muscles. Read the accompanying manual - I assure you that you will be surprised at all the ways it can be used for pain relief.
Great for mid back and lower back pain trigger points that may be hard to reach.
Easy to Use at Home or at Work. Apply as much pressure as you are able to handle.
