Testimonials

The MyoTool is an easy and affordable way to help patients self mobilise and stretch, particularly the difficult to access regions such as the spine where self segmental mobilisation is almost impossible. The versatility of the MyoTool allows an almost complete self management program for mobilising and stretching empowering patients to be less dependent on health care providers.

When you introduced me to the MyoTool I did not realize the impact it would have on my chronic pain. As you know I have had over 27 surgeries, many of them on my back and neck. For over 15 years I have experienced severe muscle tightness, knots, and soreness in multiple spots around my spine and shoulders. Going to the chiropractor and massage therapist helped, but they just wouldn’t agree to go home with me.

I started using the MyoTool to relieve the large knots I got in my back every night when I tried to relax. Now I use it during the day and at night I even take it on the road with me and use it in the car to relieve my pain. The neat thing about the MyoTool is that it is so versatile. I use it on my feet, neck, shoulders, thighs, and especially up and down my spine. Using the MyoTool has also helped me reduce my pain meds. But, most of all it is one more tool that has helped me live a more quality life. I recommend the MyoTool to anyone that struggles with reaching those spots that you can’t reach, but always seem to cause you pain. The MyoTool has become a major part of my pain management. Thank you for introducing me to the MyoTool. Every Physical Therapist should have one in their office or rehab facility.

Sincerely,

The MyoTool is a versatile and cost effective “self help” device that is utilized to instruct patients in mobilization of the musculoskeletal system. This device empowers the patient to self manage chronic and subacute musculoskeletal disorders. In particular, I have found the Myotool to be very effective in helping patients learn to self mobilize specific spinal segments, muscles and nerves that are otherwise difficult to access. The uniqueness of the Myotool allows for numerous options for treatment in a comfortable and clinically effective manner. The end result is the compliance to home exercise and self management programs.

What a great aid for the muscular skeletal system. Years of bodybuilding, karate, and judo left me with tons of arthritis, trigger points, scar tissue and loss of flexibility. While training in 2005-2006 I tore multiple areas of my left hip and high hamstring. After one and a half months with your MyoTool my flexibility is great. The trigger points and burning that I once had in my scapula and posterior delts for years are all gone! Who knows, I might train for the world’s next year.

Thanks again for a great product.

The first time I used the Myotool, I loved it. I personally use it for my self care; shoulder, upper back and hip muscles as well as mobilization of my thoracic spine. It is really one of those tools that everyone needs because it is so versatile. I recommend it to most of my patients that need additional trigger point treatment. It is a favorite gift item as well. Try it, you’ll like it.

I have been experiencing chronic pain for the past 22 years as the result a series of spinal injuries followed by surgeries. I have spent thousands of dollars and an equal amount of hours in my life seeking relief. Using the Myotool allows me to ease my pain. The Myotool is the easiest and most cost effective way of gaining decreased pain and only takes a few minutes each time I use it. Myotool is my tool for pain relief. Thank you for this wonderful invention.

Self management is in. The Myotool is a great tool for muscles, nerves, joints and even the brain.

I build homes. I not only oversee the construction, I do most of the construction; everything from pouring concrete and framing to roofing and painting. All the different aspects of construction utilize and take a toll on many different muscles. My MyoTool enables me to get up the next day and do it again. It lets me massage my muscles at my own pace and pressure, depending on my needs. I can target areas, such as my back, with my own control. During consturction, I use the MyoTool nightly and feel great in the morning. I recommend the MyoTool.

In addition to the uses outlined in the user’s guide, we have found the MyoTool particularly useful for self-mobilization of the thoracic spine. The center knobs of the MyoTool can be used in weight-bearing positions to perform thoracic self SNAGS in all directions and in supine lying to perform effective segmental distraction. We recommend the myotool as a self-mobilizing and stretching device for patients that find it difficult to maintain spinal flexibility. By using the myotool regularly, many patients can maintain mobility and remain symptom free.

I have been stretching and using the MyoTool religiously and have experienced another substantive step of improvement in my back… Wednesday I got from home to Alpine Meadows and was on my skis before I suddenly realized that my back/leg had not hurt at all. Amazing!

The design of the Myotool is extremely complimentary to the hands on soft tissue related treatments provided by us physical therapists in the clinical setting. It almost as good as the patient having their own personal PT… to provide all of the needed tacks for effective mobilization.

I have worked in physical therapy for fourteen years. I have a bulging disc in my neck. I have gone to many doctors who have treated this condition, none have worked. Then a friend introduced me to the MyoTool, it is something that I can use myself to alleviate the pain. It is easy to use and I can find the painful spots and work them out on my own. I never thought that I could do as much for myself as this tool allows. Who would have thought that I could give myself a massage that would actually feel good. Needless to say I use my MyoTool for my aches and would recommend it to anyone.

After 12 years of searching for relief from my back pain I am thrilled to have found the MyoTool! It’s great that I can now help myself through the use of the MyoTool without going to physical therapy as often. Thanks so much!

I broke my back over 38 years ago. The MyoTool helps me stay aligned as it reaches places on my back that otherwise are inaccessible. It is flexible, yet firm enough to relieve the tightness I feel every single day of my life. I put it under my bed and pull it out when needed. I love it!!!

I’m pleased to finally have a tool that takes care of so many different parts of my body. I’ve tried many back tools over the years, but they were either ineffective or they required that I feel discomfort in one part of my body to receive relief in another. The Myotool requires little to no effort or energy. Its design seems to allow one’s own body weight to do most of the work. Just by resting my arms in the curved ends, I can apply pressure to my back, shoulders and neck and feel great relief Additionally, I was diagnosed with Tennis Elbow over a year ago. None of the stretching that was prescribed has helped much. Since I’ve been using the Myotool, I’ve had almost no pain at all. The tool allows me to stretch my arms more effectively. I’ve been using it a few times per week now and feel about 10% of the pain that used to rule my day. Thanks John and Matt for making such a great body tool!

I love the MyoTool & I must say I was not an easy convert because I used to love the theracane. I have come to realize that you can do so much more with the MyoTool. I have one in my trunk most the time for me (as a physical therapist we all know how hard it is to get another therapist to work on another & how difficult it can be to work on you–problem solved with the MyoTool). I use it on a wide variety of patients & it is so well liked that it has been known to be stolen. It is the closest thing I have found to having my own personal physical therapist on hand when needed. Let’s face it; life isn’t getting any less stressful so anything you can do to get relief from those screaming trigger points living in our postural muscles makes the world a better place. Thank you for inventing such a versatile tool to enhance our ability to treat patients! Dana Hulet, PT

I was getting treatment for my aching back from Mr. Seivert and on one of my appointments he handed me a MyoTool and instructed me how to use it on my back. At the very beginning I could feel the benefit of this tool. I used it on different parts of my back with excellent results. As a result I was able to perform all of the treatments that he was doing with the same satisfactory results. I bought that tool and since then I’ve been able to do all of the treatments with complete satisfaction on an as needed basis.

My first experience with the MyoTool was about two years ago. I have had chronic lower back pain for as long as I can remember. After a long day at work it is usually throbbing. It takes an incredible amount of energy and time for my wife to dig her thumbs, elbows, heels or whatever it takes to massage the deep sore muscles in my back. The MyoTool is shaped in such a way that I am able to massage my back, getting to those deep muscles with ease all by myself. The main benefit to me is that I do not have to constantly ask my wife to help me and it just takes a few minutes to ease my pain. I would definitely recommend Myotool to everyone for any kind of muscle pain or soreness.

I find the MyoTool to be a very effective adjunct to my manual therapy treatments. Its versatility allows my patients to do self soft tissue and joint mobilizations at home or work that complement our treatment in the clinic. The MyoTool is unique from other self-treatment tools in that it allows the therapist and patient so many options for treatment comfort, as well as creativity to provide an effective home program.

Ever since I can recall, I have had persistent back pain caused by scoliosis; I call it my “circle of pain” between my shoulder blades. On the rare occasion that I can convince someone to massage my back, it is difficult to explain how and where to apply pressure, and they are never able to remedy the pain. However, when I use the MyoTool the power is in my hands and I’m able to work the muscles exactly the way I want. By using the MyoTool, I’m able to not only decrease the pain, but to completely eliminate it.

The MyoTool has greatly helped me in the last two significant changes in my life. The first was the birth of my daughter. After delivering my daughter I maintained significant knots in my lower back that I just couldn’t get relief from. My husband was a willing candidate for lots of massages but wasn’t able to maintain the constant pressure that I needed to break up the knots. I found the MyoTool and was able to use the brochure to find the exact methods of how to pinpoint the spots on my back that I needed. I could control the pressure and really dig in to my back finally get the knots to go away. The second thing I found the MyoTool useful for helping with neck and shoulder pain I get from work. I recently started working at a busy hospital as a Sonographer and these areas are usually in a lot of pain after a long day. The MyoTool lets me massage these areas and I feel so much better when I get done working the muscles. When I don’t use it I get headaches from all the pressure in my neck. The MyoTool has been a great addition to our family. My husband has also grown accustomed to using the MyoTool on a regular basis. We still willingly give each other massages but when either of us is hurting we are quick to tell each other “Go get the MyoTool!

For those unexpected nights after a long day at the office, where my neck and shoulders are tight and knotted, the MyoTool works wonders at relieving that tension! Within less than 10 minutes of deep-tissue work, that perform by myself, my neck felt relaxed and the slight headache I came home with was gone. Great home intervention that comes in handy at just the right moments!

Margaret J., Las Vegas

We love the MyoTool! It helps with our back and neck pain and is a good stand-in for our favorite massage therapist who lives hundreds of miles away. It has the ability to get into those pressure points. My mother-in-law likes it so much that she keeps “forgetting” to bring it back!

The MyoTool has become a staple in my home and office. I have four children and keeping up with them all the time takes its toll on my body. I use the MyoTool to reach places in my mid spine that tense up and to give myself a foot massage while I am watching TV. Most regularly I use it for my lower back, lying down on the floor. I am able to use the weight of my body to massage strained muscles and a sore bulging disk. I keep one in my office at work especially for my neck and shoulders. My office has become a popular place for people to come hang out! Every time they walk in, the first thing they do is grab the MyoTool and start in on their sore necks! Everyone in my family has one. Just like any staple we use our MyoTools everyday to keep our bodies happy!

I was really impressed by the MyoTool and how you can use it in so many different ways. I especially love to use it on my neck. I get a lot of Migraines and the pain goes right to my neck, so it is great to use when I have my aches and pains. I think every household should have a MyoTool.

I have a very tight trapezius on my left side with a knot that forms whenever I get really stressed. When that happens, I can barely move my head, so I lay on the rug (with a short hard nap), and put one ball on the knot and gradually increase the pressure until I can’t stand it. Then I just lay there and wait for the pain to stop. It only takes about 5 to 7 min. and it is GONE. I don’t LOVE doing it but I am grateful that I have the MyoTool so that I CAN do it. Thank you,

I was in a few car accidents causing back and neck pain. The MyoTool has helped aide me through my healing. It has been the best tool to help relieve achy muscle pain and ease tension those hard to reach knots.

I have had tremendous success with the MyoTool for my low back pain patients. I find it simple to teach and my patients’ state it is simple to use. The result is an effective home spinal mobilization program that patients stick with.

Mike Schaack, Physical Therapist, FAAOMPT

As a Massage Therapist I have been able to enjoy the benefits of the Myotool both for myself and recommending it to my clients. I spend a lot of time standing up and using my body as my tool to work which can put a lot of tension on several areas, with the Myotool I have found an easy and quick way to work those areas as I relax and even watching TV!

Elaine Oliveira, Massage Therapist Sao Paulo, Brazil

I have had tension headaches for many years now and the Myotool has been a great blessing in my life. I use it almost everyday (I just slide it under my couch) and it brings much needed relief to my neck as well as my upper-back muscles. Thanks Myotool!
