How It Helps

  • Muscle scraping has been shown to increase blood flow by 400% vs. other recovery tools. New blood flow carries oxygen & nutrients to the injury, accelerating your body’s healing ability.
  • Stimulates collagen regeneration of injured tissues, effectively treating soft tissue injuries such as plantar fasciitis.
  • Alleviates pain and tightness in minutes


How do I use it?

Muscle scraping is very simple and intuitive. After applying the emollient to your skin, use your Sidekick tool to apply pressure to the area that needs relief. Use a combination of long and short strokes, in any direction. Repeat on the surrounding muscles.

Does this really work?

Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is a technique used by physical therapists and clinicians to treat injuries and accelerate the body’s natural healing process. Clinical studies with plantar fasciitis sufferers have shown that 94% of participants experienced pain relief after using Sidekick for 3 days. Read more about the science and clinical results here.

Is it painful?

No. As you are in control of the pressure, muscle scraping should not hurt. Due to Sidekick’s weight and edge, even minimal pressure will provide results.

Most muscle scrapers are designed to be compact for one-hand use. This makes them effective for pinpointing specific problem areas. But how do you treat larger muscle groups?

With the Bow Muscle Scraper, you can finally give larger muscle groups the relief they need. At a whopping 19”, this is a big tool for big recovery. The Bow's design wraps around larger muscles, allowing it to comfortably glide along your skin. Perfect for the hamstrings, quads, calves, hips, and more. You’ll no longer suffer through chronic pain.

Our two-handled design features comfortable and textured grips. Not only does it provide added control, it also reduces hand fatigue for longer recovery sessions. Heavily tested and expertly designed, we hollowed the handles to reduce arm strain but kept the body of the bow solid for ample pressure as it glides. The result? Fast, effective, and more comfortable muscle relief.

For added versatility, the Bow is double-edged. Use the rounded bottom arc for large, sweeping strokes, and the sharper top arc for honing in on tight knots. Easily customize your sessions for recovery. Crafted with stainless steel, it’s as sleek as it is durable.



  • Perfect for larger muscle groups
  • Comfortably weighted for effective pressure
  • Anti-Fatigue grip to reduce hand fatigue

        Why clinicians & athletes love Sidekick

        Dr. Mecca Fayad


        The tool very quickly & effectively helps break up that muscle soreness and muscle tightness. I find it quite useful for older injuries like ankle sprains, Achilles tears or bicep tears.

        Molly Seidel

        Olympic Marathoner

        Every runner should be scraping. It is an essential technique for being able to keep your body healthy, work through soreness, and keep yourself running optimally.

        Sara Hall

        Professional Marathoner

        It's probably the best investment you can make in your running or your sport. It's like the cost of 1-2 massage therapy sessions, but it's something you can do for your whole life.

        We didn’t invent muscle scraping. We elevated it.

        Game changer

        I have been struggling with a hamstring injury for over a year. I bought the curve and the bow. Have been using every other day decide and after workouts and I’ve noticed a huge difference. I’m so grateful to have found this product !!!

        Chaz Britton

        Absolutely amazing must get. Stop reading, start buying

        Petra Sofia De Benedetti
        Bow muscle Scraper

        Thank you for making these tools. My body has experienced painful plantar fasciitis for half a year. It feels comforting for this tool to massage my foot and my lower leg muscles! And it is effective! Just one hint for your own company. Add your webpage and your company name to each of your pouches that hold the tools you make and onto the tools themselves. Just your logo, which I would never tell means the initials for Sidekick since it looks more like a 'K' with a lower letter 'c' would never make me remember from whom I bought it to either order them again or refer them to someone else since the name of your company would have been forgotten by then.

        Melissa St Pierre

        I bought this because a few years post marathon and many massages, foam rolling, and lacrosse ball sessions later, I was still experiencing pain in my left hip and IT band. I read about muscle scraping so decided to give this a try. It worked a miracle after only a couple sessions! I used to wake up in the middle of the night unable to sleep from the discomfort. I am so grateful for this amazing tool. Yes it’s expensive, but it’s a worthy investment. My mother said her legs were sore so I let her use it too and she also felt immediate relief. Thank you, Sidekick!!

        Shaun Morgan
        I wish I had bought sooner

        The bow is amazing! I use on quads/hamstrings, calves, and lats. It’s such a different tension release from a foam roller… i always feel so much better after using for a few minutes. It’s nice you can use both sides of the bow for added depth as well.
