Stir, The Leading Dating App For Single Parents, Joins Forces With Therabody To Combat Single Parent Back Pain

March 21, 2024 8:03 AM

DALLAS, March 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, in recognition of National Single Parent Day, dating app Stir is teaming up with Therabody, the wellness technology leaders behind the Theragun percussive massage device, to provide single parents with much-needed relief from back pain - with tools, tips, support and encouragement to "get back out there".

There are more than 20 million single parents in the U.S., and studies show that single parents are significantly more likely to suffer from back pain and back injuries than non-single parents*.

"This Single Parents Day, we want to help our community get back out there. As many parents know, it's hard to feel your best self when your back is hurting ," said Jennifer Spector, VP of Brand at Stir. "Single Parents are doing double duty by taking on the full load of lifting kids, folding strollers, carrying armfuls of toys, and many other tasks that can really take a toll. This partnership with Therabody is paving the way for less pain and more pleasure. Stir has your back (no matter how you throw it out!)"

The partnership, which kicks off today on National Single Parent Day, includes an exclusive Therabody product discount for Stir members*, and educational video content from Dr. Alex VanDerschelden, a skilled chiropractic professional and social media sensation.

When it comes to single-parent back woes, Dr. Alex has some tips for daily stretches:

(1) • Open up your lower back: Cross one leg over the other while seated with your back in a neutral position. Do each side for about 10-15 seconds and repeat for 3-5 sets. For bonus points, use the Theragun Sense on the muscle you're working (your glute on the side of your body with the leg crossing over). You could try this at work, sitting at the table with your kids eating a meal or watching an arts and crafts project.

(2) • The Cobra Stretch: Lying on the ground, lift your upper body up off the ground so that your head and chest are pulling back in the same motion a Cobra snake would make. This is easy for parents who are playing on the ground with their kids using toys, building blocks, etc. Perform this stretch 10-15 seconds and repeat for 3-5 sets to get a great back stretch in daily.

"The workout called parenting" can take a toll on the body; doubly so for single parents," said John Solomon, CMO of Therabody, Inc. "We're glad to be able to offer The Stir members some great ways to relieve back pain, improve circulation and ease soreness with Theragun Sense."

In addition to the partnership, Stir is also launching "massage mode" that turns your Stir App into a massage device to support back health while dating. Single parents can chat, flirt, and make plans for a date IRL with Stir's calendar feature, all while tending to their aches and pains.
