i’m hoping to get some feedback from people that have used a marc pro. i am thinking about picking one up but only if it makes a significant difference in recovery for most people. it seems like more and more folks are using them and a similar product from compex.
Marc Pro is great.
You can hear about it, however, experiencing it makes all the difference.
It’s great on the low back.
For low back pain I’d recommend getting a Plus to have the high and low frequency options.
Low is for recovery, high is used to go after the pain symptom. Using both addresses both aspects.
Mobility is one aspect of recovery and using a marc pro is another aspect of recovery both improve overall recovery. You can hit all areas with a Marc Pro. Quads, Traps, upper back, med back, low back, hamstring, calf, shoulder, lats, tricep different combinations of areas, global arm or global leg flush.
Do you have a mobility plan for your back?
Feel free to message me any questions you have.

I just came across this thread and am glad I did.
I have been looking into purchasing a Marc Pro ever since I joined Mobilitywod.com in February. I ride horses competitively for a living and injured myself in mid January. I finally got around to seeing a doctor and it turns out I have a partially torn adductor longus and a near complete tear to the adductor brevis. I’m waiting to hear back from my doctor who was going to talk to a specialist about surgery etc but I was wondering how beneficial the Marc Pro would be either as a recovery tool after surgery or possibly using it if I don’t end up needing surgery. My goal is to be able to get back to competing and I’m hoping this isn’t a career ending injury but only time will tell.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
Sam, i’ve been nerding out on electrotherapy and there is a lot of evidence that certain types of electrotherapy can help healing of tissues. i recently bought a Marc Pro and its pulse patterns aren’t really what you would you use to heal tissues. i’m not sure i would use it on damaged tissue because it induces a strong contraction to facilitate the fluid flow process but i’m not sure it would be a good idea to use on muscle that is torn – it might make the injury worse.
Thanks for the website David. I should hear back from my Dr by tuesday regarding my different options for surgery etc and once I figure out what Im doing I will talk with my PT or Dr about the electrotherapy. I know I will be back here in the near future once I have a game plan on how to treat this injury and where I am going from there.
A Marc Pro is recovery based a tool you can definitely include with your recovery from training.
Understanding the goal of the different types of devices and what your goal in using it is key.
Have you watched the 2 episodes about using a Marc Pro with recovery?
Yeah I have watched the episodes here on mobilitywod.com as well as videos on the Marc Pro website. It seems like something I am definitely going to use once I am able to get back into training and riding, it should help me get back to where I was before the injury. I probably should have phras d the question differently, I didn’t know if using the Marc pro with this type of injury would have any adverse effects but it makes sense that I should probably stay away from it until I’m cleared by a dr to start training again to avoid further complications. In one of the videos o saw I thought it also said that the Marc Pro Plus was a good tool to use after surgery but I can’t remember which video that was.
I don’t see why I couldn’t use the mark pro on my other leg and the rest of my body to help with recovery since the nature of my business doesn’t allow me to “take it easy” the way others would. I’m just not riding now but I am still working and teaching which has been taking a toll on my back and left leg since I have been compensating so much due to the injury. Is this a something that makes sense or should I stay away from it completely until I have a game plan regarding the injured leg?
You absolutely can use it on your back, and other parts of your body.
It’s great for your back. Recovery with the other areas of your body will remain an important aspect.
The Marc Pro Plus can be used for temporary relief of pain associated
with sore and aching muscles in the shoulder, waist, back, neck, upper
extremities (arm), and lower extremities (leg) due to strain from
exercise and normal household and work activities. The Marc Pro Plus is not intended to be used for therapy or treatment of medical diseases or medical conditions.
Contact me [email protected] with any questions. Would love to chat with you about your current situation, using it on your back and other areas, and using it within your training recovery protocol.
Just to be clear – i have the basic Marc Pro version, not the Plus which has pain management pulse patterns.
He would be using low frequency for recovery on other areas of his body.
Muscle soreness you would use low frequency setting to drive blood, clear waste from the tissues restoring normal function.
Low Frequency is where the recovery takes place. “Garbage out and groceries in!”
High Frequency is best used on the joints and the back and is used for pain control.
Thanks for allot your help everyone! I’m in Va now for work and when I get back next week I will be back to the dr to start to figure out a game plan regarding surgery etc. Kaitlin, I will email you when I get home and have a little more time.
A quick side question, does anyone here have any experience with torn adductors and more importantly the recovery time if I were to undergo surgery?
However, there are two areas i don’t seem to be able to get much of a contraction on.
What placements are you using on your calf?
Have you slid the placements?
Email me [email protected] I have a placement for you to use. Can’t post the photo says its too large .
The issue with running is most likely that your heels are not kissing
the ground. When this happens the calf remains contracted the entire
time which causes the soreness.
B. Have you slid the pads to make sure they are on the target area?
That is the first place to start.
slid the placements? not sure what you mean.
Move them to ensure they are placed on the muscle.
If they aren’t placed correctly on the muscle you won’t get full contraction.
What is the intensity on?
