Whats all the hype about #Theragun




How does it work?

  • A theragun uses percussive therapy: pressure and vibration on a tissue combining torque, frequency and amplitude.

What does it do?

  • Relieves pain

  • Releases histamines

  • Decreases inflammation

  • Improves blood flow

  • Improves range of motion

  • Improves flexibility

  • Decreases lactic acid

  • Improves fascia mobility


What types of diagnosis will we use it on?

  • Low back pain

  • Neck pain

  • Shoulder pain: impingement, rotator cuff tendonitis

  • Elbow pain: tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow

  • Hip pain: bursitis, ITB pain

  • Knee pain: bursitis, tendonitis

  • Foot pain: plantar fasciitis

  • After a workout


How we will use it in the PT clinic:

  • To improve localized blood flow

  • To improve global or general blood flow

  • To inhibit or suppress tight muscles

  • To improve nerve mobility

  • To activate or stimulate muscles

  • We can use it to aid in your recovery after a workout
