The Dallas Mavericks use the Theragun PRO massage gun, the PowerDot 2.0 Duo muscle stimulator, and the RecoveryAir PRO pneumatic compression boots to improve recovery and allow their players to perform every day at the highest level.
Future Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki was one of the first players to introduce a Therabody product to the Mavs locker room when during the later stages of his career, he would use the recovery boots after every game. Soon, more and more players would follow.
“We’ve enjoyed their products and used them for a number of years before this official partnership,” Mavericks head athletic trainer Dionne Calhoun said when Therabody was announced as the Official Recovery Partner of the Dallas Mavericks.

“We’re really excited to continue to use their products and integrate them into what we do, as well as the educational component,” he continued, referring to education sessions with performance and wellness experts from Therabody University, the company’s educational division.
Going forward, the Mavs will implement the Theragun PRO in their training and recovery regimen to help players keep their muscles loose and accelerate recovery time, while the RecoveryAir PRO will be used to help reduce muscle soreness and stiffness.
“The Mavericks perform at the highest level of competition, and like all of us, their bodies experience wear and tear from the intensity of their workouts and game play,” Therabody Founder and Chief Wellness Officer Dr. Jason Wersland explained.
“We’re proud to support them by helping to ensure that the players are able to achieve their bodies’ full potential.” For Los Angeles, California-based Therabody, this represents the second partnership with an NBA team after a similar deal was reached with the Los Angeles Clippers.
The company is also the Official Recovery Partner of the Dallas Stars and recently opened its second headquarters and a distribution center in the city.
About the Dallas Mavericks
Founded in 1980, the Dallas Mavericks compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member of the Western Conference Southwest Division. After seeing limited success in the 1990s, things changed drastically with the acquisition of Dirk Nowitzki in 1998.
Two of the four division titles, both conference titles, and the only NBA championship in franchise history came during the 21 seasons Nowitzki spent with the team. In 2018, the Mavs traded Trae Young to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for Luka Dončić and started their rebuild.
