Theragun massage device comparison - which model to choose ?

The use of percussion massagers is the latest trend - as a warm-up before or after exercise. These massagers provide muscle stimulation to improve blood circulation. Theragun has seen a noticeable rise in popularity recently, thanks in large part to spectacular slow-motion videos posted on social accounts by athletes and coaches from all over the world. In this article, we've gathered information on how the Theragun massage gun works, what its benefits are, and created a comparison of Theragun models.

What is percussive therapy? How does Theragun work?

 

Theragun is a massage device used to relieve muscle tension and pain. This device is used by an increasing number of people, from sports enthusiasts to professional athletes. Dr Jason has shown many great products and inventions. The doctor was injured and was looking for ways to speed up the recovery period. So he created the Theragun self-massager. 

The massage guns use a type of therapy called percussion therapy, massaging the tissues gently, relaxing and deeply at the same time using fast, concentrated pulses or vibrations. A Theragun device usually consists of a motorised head connected to various attachments to provide rapid percussive movements to the target muscles. The unique design and technology of the Theragun percussive therapy device makes it a very versatile therapy. Whether you want a deep tissue massage or a gentle and relaxing massage, the latest scientific research shows that percussive therapy effectively stimulates blood flow, relaxes tense muscles and promotes overall muscle recovery.

What are the benefits of Theragun?

 

  1. Relieves pain - Percussion therapy is a drug-free solution for symptoms such as pain and discomfort.
  2. Improves blood circulation - Improved blood flow is essential for recovery - it helps to deliver essential nutrients to the muscles and remove metabolic waste products, leading to faster muscle recovery.
  3. Reduces lactic acid - Theragun's deep tissue treatment helps break down lactic acid and other toxins that can build up in the muscles.
  4. Improves range of movement - Theragun improves mobility and range of movement. Cal Poly Pomona's Human Performance Lab conducted a scientific study using Theragun and found that a single Theragun treatment improves lower body mobility.
  5. Makes recovery more effective - Theragun percussion therapy, which lasted 2 minutes, was as effective in recovery as 15 minutes of manual therapy, making it a more effective recovery solution.
