The new partnership, which will see Mumbai City become Therabody’s first Official Indian Super League Partner, bridges together our mission to reduce the risk of injury and optimise recovery, whilst laying the groundwork for a healthy and sustainable career in professional football.
Therabody is the creator of the world’s first-ever percussive therapy device, Theragun®, which is used to accelerate recovery, reduce the risk of injuries and support optimal athletic performance. Since its launch in 2016, the company evolved from Theragun to Therabody, an entire ecosystem of industry-leading wellness educational content and products that are at the intersection of performance and pain management, rooted in research and innovation.
In its commitment to seeking new ideas and technologies that promote performance on the pitch, recovery off it, and empower players to manage their wellbeing, Mumbai City will integrate the usage of Therabody products into the Club’s training and recovery programs and optimize further warm-up and recovery strategies in the pursuit of elite performances.
Sandeep Kurale, Head of Rehabilitation and Medical Services at Mumbai City, said: “It’s vital that we keep improving and developing new standards for our players’ training and recovery levels along with their general wellbeing. Joining hands with Therabody will allow us to provide best-in-class products, know-how and resources to our players and provide them access to optimized training and recovery regimes, allowing them to perform at their maximum potential.”
“We are thrilled to be joining Manchester City, Melbourne City, Sichuan Jiuniu FC and Mumbai City in their pursuit of enhancing performance and overall health of their professional players and Clubs,” said Dr. Jason Wersland, Therabody’s Founder and Chief Wellness Officer. “Educating people on the importance of taking care of your body, both physically and mentally, is core to Therabody’s mission and drives our innovation forward. These clubs are leading the charge in taking care of their players and providing the best products in the industry to increase player longevity. It's an honour to be a part of a team whose mission and values align so closely with our own.”
Through the partnership, Therabody will also become the Official Recovery Partner of Manchester City, Melbourne City, and Sichuan Jiuniu FC and will continue to integrate Therabody’s Theragun devices and other leading technologies into team training and recovery protocols - on the pitch, on the go, or in their own home. The clubs will also have access to Therabody’s network of world-renowned health and wellness experts through Therabody University.
City Football Group brokered this partnership as part of its consultancy services to the Club.
