Vibration acts as a natural pain reliever by scrambling the pain signals sent to your brain. A scientific study here, published last year in the Journal of Sport Rehabilitation, examined how pain sensory is affected when using vibrating rollers. The bottom line: using a vibrating roller decreases the pain you feel when rolling out your muscles and increases your flexibility - relieving aches and pains and helping you warm up twice as fast.
Vibration provides significant pain relief that has long lasting effects. In the study, participants who used a vibrating roller had three times the pressure pain thresholds (180kPa) than participants that did not use a roller (61 kPa).1
In addition, participants in the study, who used a vibrating roller, significantly increased their flexibilty - an average of 46% increase (verses 18% for a traditional roller)1
"I'm an avid hiker, rower and active woman in my late 60s. My daughter is a physical therapist and, over the years, has urged me to get into a routine that includes rolling my muscles so I'm not sore getting out of bed after a big walk or fun day hiking with my girlfriends. I've never been able to tolerate the pain of being on a roller, especially when trying to roll out my IT bands, but this roller is so delightful! Starting at the lower vibration settings and then working up to the higher settings, I don't feel pain in the muscle and am able to get the muscles to completely relax. I'm so glad my daughter found this roller and recommended it to me!

"Wow! This is the best roller I've ever used. After only a couple uses, I was able to get relief from some longstanding soft tissue issues... and this is coming from someone who has used many other vibrating and static rollers. I'm really impressed with the variety of vibration intensity. Besides being the most power vibrating roller that I've used, it also has some low intensity vibration levels that are perfect for really sensitive areas. I definitely recommend the Power Roller to anyone who is looking to take their recovery or rehabilitation to the next level.
