Muscle pain is quite prevalent. Almost everyone has felt muscular pain at some point in their lives. Because muscle tissue may be found in virtually every portion of the body, this sort of discomfort can be felt almost anywhere. Muscle aches and pains, on the other hand, do not have a single cause.
People who have muscular pains can usually determine the source. This is because most cases of myalgia are caused by excessive stress, tension, or physical exertion. Some of the most common reasons include muscular tension in one or more places of the body, overuse of the muscle during physical activity, injury to the muscle when engaged in physically demanding labor or exercise, and neglecting warmups and cooldowns.
Pain management by percussion therapy
Percussion treatment is a sort of massage therapy used to relieve tired muscles after strenuous exercise. It entails rapidly striking muscle tissue with a massage pistol, boosting blood flow for a speedier recovery, pain alleviation, and a greater range of motion.
What is percussion therapy?
Percussion treatment (also known as percussive therapy) is exactly what it sounds like: a sort of rhythmic massage that uses quick-hitting strokes to hammer your soft tissue.
Why would you want to do something like that? It helps to get your blood flowing, which helps to alleviate post-workout discomfort and accelerate muscle recovery. Some people utilize it as part of their pre-exercise warm-up.
Percussion treatment uses a massage gun instead of a massage therapist’s hands. The DIY nature of the whole thing has made it extremely popular, especially in these epidemic times.
Vibration treatment, which may comprise vibrating plates, foam rollers, or portable devices, is also related to percussion therapy. By increasing the pressure, massage guns take vibration to the next level.
Benefits of percussion therapy
Want to feel better after working out? Active recovery, or continuing to move after an exercise, may help you feel better and be stronger after a hard workout, according to studies. This kind of rehabilitation encourages good circulation, among other advantages.
Additionally, massage, particularly percussive massage, helps keep your circulation flowing. Following an exercise, gently hammering and vibrating your muscles promotes blood flow and accelerates muscle healing.
Improves range of motion
Those that use massage guns claim that they have a greater range of motion. Science appears to concur. In a small 2020 research of 16 healthy males, it was discovered that 5-minute calf muscle massages with a massage gun increased the range of motion more than merely relaxing for the same period of time.
Although there isn’t quite enough data to make a firm conclusion, it is encouraging. A massage gun might be a terrific addition to your pre-and post-workout stretching if you want to feel a little looser.
Helps in DOMS
When you participate in physical activity that pushes your muscles above their normal capacity, DOMS develops. It might linger for 24 to 72 hours after your workout and is obnoxious and awful. Good thing percussion treatment can offer a quick fix.
Vibration therapy and percussion therapy employ distinct methods of treatment, but their mechanics are comparable. Vibration therapy uses, well, vibration, but percussive therapy also includes beating or hammering motions.
Both therapies guard against any muscle injury brought on by eccentric exercise. By interfering with the pain signals your brain delivers to your body, it also lessens the experience of pain in your body. You no longer have to put up with any post-workout soreness thanks to percussion treatment.
Gives way to a better lymphatic flow
Better lymphatic drainage results from fewer muscular knots and tension. The lymph can efficiently remove waste and poisons from the body when it can travel freely.
A stronger lymphatic system translates to a stronger immune system and metabolism.
Quick relief to muscle soreness
This is most likely the best part of it all since it works quickly. The difference in execution time for the treatment might be crucial, according to supporters of the 2014 study that examined the effectiveness of vibration therapy and massage in avoiding DOMS. Vibration can be employed in circumstances where time is of the essence.
Due to their portability, massage guns are essentially available anytime you want. You can have a massage anytime, anywhere—at home late at night, on the sidelines during a timeout, or straight after your workout at the gym. Simply turn it on, focus on the hurting region, and unwind.
And as if the aforementioned advantages weren’t enough, additional study shows that vibration treatment can also increase bone strength, improve adult muscular strength, and even lessen muscle tremors, which can be helpful for those with Parkinson’s disease.
