Frequently Asked Questions

Below are our most frequently asked questions about the Thorex massager.

How often should I use it?

For the best results the Thorex Massager should be used daily. There is no true limit to using the product but let your body tell you when it feels the Thorex Massager has been effective!

What surfaces can I use it on?

The Thorex Massager can be used on any wall for the lightest pressure. For more intense treatment use it on the floor. Carpet, tile, or hard wood floor are the best surfaces for the Thorex Massager wheels.

Use caution when using the Thorex Massager on an unstable surface.

Has this been tested on different ages, weights, and heights?

The Thorex Massager has shown to be effective on all heights and weights. IT is safe for heavier set individuals and the pressure can be modified to the clients preference by use against a wall or on the ground. Older clients may need to use the product against a wall to decrease the pressure in cases of spinal stenosis or osteoporosis.

Will this relieve sciatic pain?

The Thorex was designed to massage the soft tissue along the spine and mobilize the facet joints in the spine. By doing so it will improve the mobility of the foramina that give rise to the sciatic nerve. If the sciatic symptoms are coming from the nerve roots it will help relieve the pain.

Please remember to consult with an orthopedist or physical therapist if you have any questions or concerns about your specific case. We can help refer you to a clinician if needed.

Will this help with scoliosis?

The Thorex was designed to mobilize the facet joints in the spine and massage the soft tissue along the spine. That being said it will improve the joint mobility in a person with early onset Scoliosis. If the scoliosis is advanced and bony adaptations have caused the spine to progress into a large scoliotic angle it will not change the anatomic adaptation of the bones.

The Thorex is a self-mobilizing and massage tool. Please remember to consult with an orthopedist or physical therapist if you have any questions or concerns about your specific case. We can help refer you to a clinician if needed.

Do you have support from the medical community?

The Thorex was co-produced by a Doctor of Physical Therapy to make sure the product is safe and effective.
