Message from the Founder
Welcome to the Theragun Community!
I’m Dr. Jason S. Wersland, D.C., a chiropractor and the founder/inventor of Theragun. After being in a motorcycle accident that caused a disc herniation, resulting in intense pain and eventual atrophy, I recognized an extraordinary need for an effective home or portable treatment device for patients to use as they needed.
My philosophy behind Theragun came from several perspectives. As an athlete, I recognized athletes’ unique need to be involved in their own muscle recovery. As a chiropractor, I wanted the best product for both ease of use and effectiveness. As a practitioner, I wanted a less expensive, more efficient, and more accessible product than what was available on the market. To solve this problem, I spent 8 years developing the Theragun. With its uniquely calibrated frequency, amplitude, and torque, the Theragun was engineered to effectively treat sore lactic-acid-filled muscles and other muscle-related conditions. Additionally, it allows the activation of muscles and joints to achieve a broader range of motion.
In 2014, top professional teams and athletes began using the Theragun to optimize their recovery and performance. The results were unanimous! Today, daily users include members of elite NCAA programs, MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLS teams, top football clubs in Europe, top rugby clubs in Europe, the United States Navy SEALs, the United States Marines Corp, IFBB professional bodybuilders, high school athletes, and US Olympians. In addition, the world's best triathletes, cyclists, runners and Crossfit athletes are training harder, recovering faster, and performing better with the latest model, the Theragun G2PRO™.
I want to express my gratitude to all the people who have assisted me on this journey. My children and many others have helped in so many ways, and I’m humbled by their support. I continue to work hard every day with the most talented team at Theragun to deliver the best product and results for our customers, and we’re thrilled to welcome you into the Theragun community.
Happy to Heal You!
Dr. Jason Wersland, D.C
