FAQ

Thrival is the most versatile self manual therapy tool available. When you get into it, you'll discover that Thrival is super easy to use, as well. Right now you have some questions, check these FAQ and if you don't get answers here, get in touch. Thrival is dedicated to making you are confident when purchasing and using Thrival!

What does Thrival feel like?

+

Using Thrival feels like getting a deep tissue massage. But, because you’re in control you can go as hard or soft as you like. We always recommend starting light and then increasing the pressure as you become accustomed to the feeling.

Does it hurt?

+

Any type of soft tissue manual therapy can be uncomfortable at times, but with Thrival you get to control the pressure. Want more? Just lay into it a bit more. Can’t take it? No problem, don’t press so hard. Manual therapy, on your schedule, on your terms.

Which one should I get?

+

There’s a Thrival package for everyone. The specially-priced Meat Grinder is a great place to start, but if you want the works and never have to buy another recovery tool ever again, get the Plus. There’s a description of every attachment here.

Is Thrival made in America?

Can Thrival help my low back pain?

+

Low back pain is often caused by tight, fibrotic muscle and fascial tissue. Self-myofascial release (that’s what Thrival does) has been shown in studies to relieve pain and tightness in the low back. Experienced Thrival users report complete relief from low back pain when Thrival is used on various muscles involved in spine mechanics. Don’t worry, here’s a video to show you exactly where to work to relieve low back pain.

Can Thrival help my shoulder pain?

With Thrival, especially the Meat Grinder attachment, you can self treat all muscles of the Rotator Cuff, and the other major muscles of the shoulder. Here’s an instructional video on self treating the shoulder and Rotator Cuff.

What's the best attachment for the IT band?

We love the Meat Grinders for the IT Band since you can point the inward and treat in front and behind the IT band without crushing it against the quad (like you do with a foam roller, ouch...)
