Ease Muscle Soreness For Under $20 Thanks to These Amazon Recovery Tools
I've been relying on what I like to call "the doorframe method" to relieve muscle soreness. You know, when you use the corner of an entryway to target that knot that won't quit?
Is it cost-effective? Yes — that's its main attraction. Does it reach all of my problem areas? Not even close.
The reality of the situation is that the more I work from the couch and work out without warming up, cooling down, or stretching (I suggest not following my lead!), the less the doorframe method actually works.
So, I'm making room in my budget for a cost-effective solution to my muscle aches and tight joints — and Amazon is helping big time. Ahead, you'll find the recovery tools for under $20 I'm shopping to upgrade my home treatment methods.
ProsourceFit Acupressure Mat and Pillow Set
By lying on the ProsourceFit Acupressure Mat and Pillow Set ($15) for 10-30 minutes a day, you'll experience an added endorphin release that can help relax your muscles, increase energy, and improve circulation, this brand says. By targeting pressure points that help ease muscle tightness and relieve stress, this set could be the holistic treatment your body needs.
Zongs Manual Massage Ball Pain Relief Back Roller
Loosen up relentless knots in your shoulders, neck, back, arms, legs, and feet with the Zongs Manual Massage Ball Pain Relief Back Roller ($7). Not only will your muscles feel relief as the tool glides over aches and pains, but the brand says it can improve blood circulation, too.
AmazonBasics High-Density Round Foam Roller
This AmazonBasics High-Density Round Foam Roller ($16) is extrafirm and designed to offer a deeper massage than the standard foam roller. Plus, it's lightweight and easy to clean — ideal for on-the-go workout recovery.
Sportneer Muscle Roller Massage Stick
Fit with 10 gears, the Sportneer Muscle Roller Massage Stick ($13) is designed to provide a deep-tissue massage for quick muscle relief and reduced stiffness and pain. This tool's design has multiple advantages: its antislip grip helps you target harder-to-reach areas and the 0.5-centimeter gap between each gear increases the device's flexibility while preventing hair from getting caught and pulled.
TrekProof Reusable Hot and Cold Therapy Gel Wraps
Keeping these TrekProof Reusable Hot and Cold Therapy Gel Wraps ($18 for two) on deck gives you options for at-home relief from soreness, stiff joints, and aching muscles. Safe for both the microwave and freezer, these medical-grade gel packs form to your body for comfortable use.
TheraFlow Dual Foot Massager
Glide your feet over the TheraFlow Dual Foot Massager ($17) and let the acupressure nubs work reflexology magic on your pain. The device's 10 free-moving rollers work to reach all the configurations in your feet so no spot goes unmassaged.
