The Los Angeles Clippers use the Theragun PRO massage gun, the Wave Roller, and the clinical pneumatic compression device RecoveryAir PRO provided by Therabody to enhance player recovery and overall team performance.
Power forward Paul George started using the Theragun long before the partnership between Therabody and the Clippers was announced. “I was first introduced to Theragun during my training in Indiana and now I can’t live without it. I take it with me wherever I go, even on planes,” the 7-time NBA All-Star explained.
“The Theragun gives me a deep muscle massage unlike anything else that I have tried, truly activating my muscles and alleviating my pain. The devices also allow me to train harder, move better, and recover faster — I use them consistently on and off the court.”
Each player on the Clippers roster will use a customized recovery routine based on their position and their individual needs with the goal to enhance their recovery time, improve their performance on the court, and ultimately lengthen their career by incorporating the latest recovery technology.
For Los Angeles, California-based Therabody, the Clippers are the third local sports franchise they have partnered with following similar deals with the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dallas Mavericks are the only other NBA team that the company works with.
About the Los Angeles Clippers
Founded in 1970 and originally based in Buffalo, New York, the franchise relocated to San Diego, California, and changed its name from Braves to Clippers in 1978. Six years later, the team would move to its current location in Los Angeles, California.
After seeing limited success for most of its existence, the franchise’s fortunes improved significantly after drafting DeAndre Jordan, Blake Griffin, and the arrival of Chris Paul. Led by those three and now known as “Lob City”, the Clippers qualified for the playoffs in six consecutive seasons and won their first division titles in 2013 and 2014.
In 2019, the Clippers traded for then Oklahoma City Thunder’s Paul George and signed free agent Kawhi Leonard, who had just won an NBA championship with the Toronto Raptors. The duo helped the franchise reach its first Conference Finals ever in 2021, where they lost to eventual finalists Phoenix Suns.
