Percussion stretch therapy targets muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints, all of which work together to aid mobility. These sessions relax thickened connective tissue, help to break down adhesions and internal scar tissue, provide improved circulation in the veins and lymphatic system, enhance flexibility through gentle stretching, and can increase your range of movement.
Top benefits of percussion gun therapy:
- Sports Performance, Injury Prevention, and Recovery
For every deep tissue session with the percussion gun, fluids and tensions are released within the deep muscles and this results in improved blood circulation.
- Advanced Vibrational Healing & Powerful Pain Relief
The vibrations from the gun help improve blood and lymph circulation around the body, which helps produce more oxygen and nutrients into the muscles. Resulting in a more speedy recovery, improved range of motion, pain relief and relieving muscle fatigue and soreness. Neck, shoulder and lower back pain can easily be relieved with the advanced vibrating effect from percussion guns.
Percussion guns work as a supplement to the standard injury rehabilitation process and encourage healing and recovery of atrophied muscles due to trauma or disease. Improved circulation into the muscles and fascial tissues helps the injured areas to become more flexible and heal within a short time.
- Relieves Muscle Spasms and Stiffness
Percussion guns can help relieve muscle spasms and stiffness that may arise from an intense workout. The muscle spasm often leads to ischemia in the muscles, which means the muscle is lacking proper blood flow. This could result in spasms that are painful to the touch. The percussion gun works by applying pressure to the muscle, tendons, and ligaments to help them become relaxed, thereby reducing spasms and painful contractions.
- Breaks up Scar Tissue
Scar tissue is made up of collagen fibers that help with the repair of damaged fibers in the body. However, the elasticity of the tissues does not measure up with the natural muscle tissues of the body. Percussion guns provide deep tissue massage, which can help break down these scar tissues, thereby alleviating pain and relieving restriction. You can use percussion therapy guns not only for sports injuries but also for post-surgery scar tissues.
Assisted Stretching benefits:
- Improve your performance in physical activities
- Reduce your risk of injuries
- Help enable a full range of motion for your joints
- Allow your muscles to work more effectively
Whether you are an athlete looking to improve your performance or simply want to do something that will keep your body agile and healthy, assisted stretching can provide immense benefits, which everyone alike can reap. Sitting at a desk, driving for long periods of time and using cellphones all negatively impact flexibility, leading to body aches and pains, making it harder for active people to achieve their peak performance. Assisted stretch is one easy way to help counter these negative effects while improving overall wellness.
During a session, you can enjoy stretching angles that are different from the ones they’re able to perform on their own and allow for deeper stretching than one can achieve one their own.
Benefits of increased flexibility include:
- Less muscle strain during workouts and activities of daily living.
- Increased range of motion
- Improved muscular balance and posture
- Improves muscle coordination
- Prevents age-induced physical limitations
- Increases activation of muscles
When combined, there are many other health benefits of percussion stretch therapy apart from relaxing the muscles and alleviating pain. These include increased mobility, improved sleep, and improved immunity. Whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, improved flexibility and mobility can help with strength, speed, power, agility and endurance so you can do more of what you love.
