The Med-Health 360 Prescription

What is Percussive Massage?

Percussion massage is a breakthrough treatment for soft tissue pain and soreness through the use of a tool that provides rapid, short duration pulses deep into the soft tissues of the body. This innovative tool accelerates the growth and repair of tissues by heavily increasing blood flow to the area.​ Percussive massage also provides a gentle stretch to the muscles and connective tissues improving responsiveness and performance.

What are the Benefits of Percussive Massage?

Percussive massage and muscle stimulation are beneficial in a variety of medical and cosmetic applications, including:

  • Relaxing of thickened connective tissue and fascia.
  • Breaking down of adhesions and internal scar tissue, present after injuries or surgery.
  • Increased venous and lymphatic circulation.
  • Elongating muscle fiber, especially when spasms, stiffness and restrictions are present.
  • Increase range of movement by relieving stiff joints.

Is Percussion Massage Good for You?

Generally, percussion massage therapy is beneficial to anyone and everyone. It has a wide range of benefits for athletes, those recovering from injuries, and the everyday person. It is for anyone interested in injury correction, injury prevention, and sports performance.
  • Muscle Soreness
  • Shin Splints
  • Muscle Spasms & Cramps
  • TMJ Syndrome
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Herniated or Bulging Discs
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia

Percussive massage can expedite the rehabilitation process of muscles that have been injured due to trauma, surgery or disease. The contractions caused by percussive massage help to strengthen muscles of individuals who may not be able to participate in physical therapy. Percussive massage can be used in patients with partial or full paralysis. The muscle contractions caused by percussive massage stimulate the muscles and prevents non-use atrophy while also improving reflex responses in which the nerves respond to stimulation.

Recent studies have shown that percussive massage causes contractions that are up to 30 times more powerful than normal voluntary contractions. This leads to enhanced muscle strength and improved muscle recovery. Percussive stimulation also improves muscle tone and balance, relieving muscular tightness and reducing the physical stress placed on bones and joints. It increases blood circulation to bring more oxygen and nutrients into the muscle, and reduces muscle fatigue and soreness.

Massage Gun

Percussive massage is a great massage therapy choice for those who want a faster recovery from injuries and surgery.

Percussion Massage Therapy FAQs

Absolutely!  Percussive massage is for anyone looking to heal old injuries, or to simply live a balanced healthy lifestyle.

Both massage guns and traditional therapeutic massage apply various amounts of pressure and motion to the surface of the skin to impart the following effects:

  • Increased blood flow
  • Elevated temperature
  • Relaxed muscle tissues
  • Improved lymph circulation
  • Improvements in ROM and flexibility 

After its inception in 2016, the massage gun industry has evolved and there are many different options and brands to choose from. Our research found the following massage guns to be the superior choice for those looking to get started with percussive therapy at home.

Massage Therapy Guns

We would highly recommend avoiding using a massage gun in the cervical area if you suffer from neck injuries such as a cervical bulging disc, DDD or neck arthritis.This could cause a possible trauma if not by a professional and could lead to further muscle and spinal damage.​

Through our research, we believe that using a high-end powerful massage gun for back injuries such as Sciatica or Arthritis – may cause more harm than good.

The more power and pressure does not mean the better the treatment, and you may actually be overstraining an already jeopardized structure.​
Percussion massage is relatively safe, but it’s not for everyone. As always, be sure you consult your doctor. Since intensity can be high it could make certain conditions or pain worse.
