Can be used on just about any area. The basis is treatment to the muscle and tendon, called musculotendinous therapy. This is useful for conditions like neck muscle pain, carpal tunnel syndrome by treating the forearm muscles, occipital neuralgia or nerve related pain at the base of the skull, tension headaches, tmj jaw pain related to muscular tension, epicondylitis or elbow pain by treating the tendon attachments, shoulder pain, and many other muscle problems in the back and legs.

The Tool

It is approximately 5 and 1/2 inches long. The handle is 4 and 1/2 inches and the wheel measures about 1 and 3/4 inches across and about 1/2 inch in thickness. The wheel is tapered to provide a small contact area, perfect for small, hard to reach locations.

compact and easy to use

It is made of steel and nylon and is very durable. As a note, I have had mine for more years than I can remember. The manufacturer sent me a sample when they first came out for my evaluation. It is still in perfect working condition throughout all these years and I use it myself. It is great for a quick treatment and I really like the feel of this. Whenever I use it on my neck, along the length of the posterior (back) muscles, I actually get goose bumps going down my arm on the side I am treating! I tend to get epicondylitis in my left elbow and find a quick session treating the forearm muscles that attach to the elbow is very beneficial. There are many uses for the wheel massager and it is an impressive massage tool that anyone with muscle and tendon problems should not be without.

Using The Massager For Basic Muscle Treatment

  • Grasping the handle in your palm, pressure is applied using the thumb and index finger
  • Roll the wheel lengthwise along the muscle – in line with the muscle fibers
  • It can be used to locate tender areas in the muscles which need treatment.
  • Upon location, roll the wheel across the tender area for about 30 seconds
  • As these areas are tender, try to keep the pain level about 5 on a scale of 1 to 10
  • Areas that are chronic, have been a problem for a while and are stubborn areas may need several treatments per day
  • The goal of the wheel massager is a healthy muscle that has proper speed, flexibility and endurance, free of pain, tenderness and tightness
