If you lift weights or pound the pavement each week you most likely have sore muscles. And most of us would say we need a massage, but fitting one more thing into your schedule isn’t exactly ideal nor cost effective to really reap the benefits. What if there was a tool that could do everything from prepping your muscles to aiding in recovery in a timely manner and you can even do it yourself?! You’re in luck, it’s called TheraGun.
TheraGun is literally a power tool with foam attachments that utilizes vibration therapy to aide in muscle reaction and recovery. All you have to do is find the muscle areas that need attention and breath through the “hurt so good” pain that comes with breaking up scar tissue and knots!
Dr. Jason, the creator of this groundbreaking tool, struggled to have any feeling in his arm after a motorcycle accident. He wanted to find a way for patients to get the care they needed at home and create a more cost-effective tool for physicians to help patients’ recovery. Because it’s so transportable and effective, you will even see many athletes getting treated on the sidelines right in the midst of a sporting event.
There really is no need to purchase your own TheraGun because FitPro, Justice Wipff, uses her TheraGun to activate her client’s muscles, as well as end training sessions with a little recovery. Her tip: “Like with any type of massage or muscle therapy, the best thing you can do after a TheraGun session is drink a lot of water to help flush things along, rest and get back to crushing your workouts when your body feels ready!”
