How to use a hand-held massaging gun safely at home

Devices such as Theragun have revolutionized home treatment of muscular aches and pains and soft tissue injuries

According to the Journal of Pain, more than one-third of all American adults report suffering with chronic muscle pain. Muscle sprains and strains also account for more than 30 percent of all reported sports-related injuries in the U.S., according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

With so many people dealing with constant pain, it is no wonder that sales of hand-held percussive massaging devices like the Theragun have skyrocketed in recent years. We have seen them for sale everywhere – even the airport – where aching passengers are eager to massage away their painfully restrictive flying experiences! These devices have also become an important tool in physical therapy practices like Allied – helping to deliver a better treatment experience to patients.

In this month’s Wellness Connection video, Dr. Matt talks about how these devices help to relieve pain by increasing blood flow in affected areas – and demonstrates how you can safely use these devices at home.

Of course, if you continue to suffer from painful muscles, please do give us a call at Allied and make an appointment to see one of our experts. We are always standing by – eager to help you get back to what you love!
