Calves, Biking and the Thumper Sport Percussive Massager

Calves, Biking and the Thumper Sport Percussive Massager

I’m not a lot of a evaluation author so this occurs to be my first one.

Why begin now, you ask?

As a result of I lastly discovered a massager that did one thing that every one the opposite (non percussion) therapeutic massage merchandise couldn’t.

Let me provide you with some background about me first.

I’m dad and husband at the beginning, however an avid bicyclist many of the remainder of the time. I common about 100+ miles per week with a median pace of round 18 – 20 mph.

For the final 2 or 3 years now, my calves have began getting very, tight and painful (and that is very with a capital V). I’ve had different leg issues by means of out the years, pulled muscular tissues, shin splints and even a dislocated patella so I believed the tightness in my calves was simply a part of biking… or getting outdated – I’m 45 years outdated.

In the hunt for aid I’ve tried many alternative therapies together with scorching baths, handbook therapeutic massage, rollers/devices and an everyday electrical massager (not percussive). Although the electrical massager felt good, it couldn’t break up the knots in my calves.

I occurred to run right into a buddy of mine, who’s a semi-pro physique builder (and on once more/off once more wrestler) and talked to him concerning the tightness in my calves.

He advised me that he had not had that specific drawback however perhaps all of the swimming he did made the knots go away.

He stated calves should be versatile as this was tantamount (he used the phrase tantamount) to relieving again ache.

He steered common weekly massages (and perhaps some swimming), which gave the impression of a fantastic concept however at $60 bucks a pop and three children to feed was a impossible resolution.

I do know there are machines on the market devoted to ft and calves, however the attain on them is proscribed and those I discovered did not go excessive sufficient up my calves… and I’m solely 5 ‘8 “. Along with the constraints, they run within the neighborhood of $300 {dollars} or extra.

My first introduction to percussion therapeutic massage was in a Brookstone catalog, percussive therapeutic massage… fascinating idea.

I did a bit homework on percussive therapeutic massage, and located a lot to examine however not a lot was ever stated about calves and percussion massagers. Among the web sites even had movies, however none of them demonstrated the massager addressing the calves.

Studying evaluations from Amazon and different therapeutic massage boards it was clear to see that Thumper massagers got here out forward in nearly each class as the very best one for the cash.

It bought to the purpose the place I used to be in ache simply strolling round the home so in a final ditch effort to keep away from going to the physician or some type of sports activities bodily therapist, I purchased the Thumper Sport.

Lengthy story brief, it is superb.

I’ve owned it for a few month now and I’ve to confess that the primary couple of days of use appeared to provide no lasting outcomes however boy did it really feel good.

After a few week I seen an considerable distinction within the flexibility (and ache stage) of my calves and after about two weeks of utilizing this percussive massager on daily basis the ache in my decrease legs completely stopped and my calves turned versatile once more.

It is nonetheless onerous to consider that after years of ache and lack of mobility (I could not level my toes straight down) percussive therapeutic massage was all I wanted.

The Thumper massager is superior and I’ll proceed utilizing it – overlook the common massager… complete waste of cash.

I take advantage of my Sport religiously, each 2 days for about 10 minutes on my ft, calves, thighs, again and even the palms of my palms.
