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.
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.
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.
