7 Science-backed Benefits of Percussive Therapy

by Dr. Lyone, Assistant Director, Caretaker Co. Research Fac.

From the office worker who sits at a desk all day, the laborer, the competitive/recreational athlete, those recovering from injury and those simply trying to live healthy: Caretaker's collection has something to offer.

Percussive therapy is a series of rapid, concentrated hits in areas where we experience intense stiffness, build-up, and soreness/pain. This softens muscle tissue and circulates blood, promoting better muscle function and health. 

A human masseur/se usually does the trick, but now, we have a cheaper and more powerful alternative: a massage gun. In this article, we will cover 7 key science-backed benefits of percussion therapy.

1. Safer & Better Athletic Performance.

Before-workout percussive therapy increases blood flow, improves flexibility, range of motion, and fully activates muscles that all enhance exercise quality of the workout and decrease the risk of injury.

2. Faster Recovery From Workouts.

A 2016 study shows that percussive therapy is an effective method to prevent DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) meaning you’re less likely to feel muscle pain or tightness 24 to 72 hours after an intense workout after using a massage gun. That means that they are great for after workouts because they relieve muscle tightness by alleviating the stress placed on the muscle bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons. The repeated hits will enhance circulation and blood flow bringing increased oxygen and nutrients to the muscle while removing lactic acid and other waste products. 

3. Relieve Tension, Soreness, and Body Aches.

Prolonged sitting usually invites poor posture. This often leads to muscle tightness and painful knots in muscles known as trigger points. Percussive massage is effective at reducing muscle tension, eliminating tight knots and decreasing general muscle soreness.

4. Muscle Injury Recovery.

Percussion massage helps recovery by increasing nerve stimulation and response, circulation and blood flow, which in turn, improve range of motion and mobility. It can also break up scar tissue, adhesions, and thereby effectively treat inflammations. 

5. Decrease Soreness From Common Conditions.

Hardcore exercise, weight-lifting, repetitive activities, and strenuous daily-living can place much stress on the body consequentially leading to certain musculoskeletal conditions. Some examples are general aches and soreness, tennis elbow, bicep tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, low back pain, and sciatica. We can decrease the "severity" of these conditions through percussive therapy!

6. Better Sleep Quality.

Percussive therapy affects our central nervous system, encouraging deep restorative sleep during which time muscle-repair occurs in the body. Improved sleep can lead to an overall increase in vitality and energy.

7. Natural Stress Relief.

Studies suggest that percussive therapy naturally reduces stress and helps you feel revitalized quickly.

What if I'm Not Experiencing Muscle Soreness?

Are you going to buy a band-aid only after getting a cut or have it ready for when you do? If you haven't guessed the answer yet: you should have it ready. Always be prepared. 

The fact is that it's gonna happen sooner or later. Studies show that about 81% of adults will experience muscle pain that holds them back from performing at their best, somewhere in their lifetime.

The difference between a band-aid and our massagers is that one will be sitting on a shelf for years at max. Whereas, you can use Caretaker's massagers daily. 

The constant therapy will keep your blood flowing, your muscles from tightening (leading cause for pain), and you'll feel like a new person moving around your day.

Some Parting Words.

The benefits of Percussion Massage are no longer limited to the professional athlete or physical therapy patient. We have brought the good stuff to you. By using our percussive massagers, you are: 

  • Decreasing muscle tightness

  • Increasing flexibility, range of motion and overall body movement

  • Improve the rate of muscle-soreness recovery

  • Reducing stress

  • Improving sleep, blood circulation, and overall muscle health

**A Percussion Massager should never be used to diagnose or treat an injury. If you are suffering from an injury, talk to your doctor or physical therapist before using a Percussion Massager.
