Massage guns are the new HOT item in 2020! It seems like everyone is promoting their own brand across social media…but what do they really do? Today Dr. Aaron Horschig shows a few different models, explains WHAT they do and IF you should really spend your $ on them!
TAKEAWAY: massage guns work to decrease stiffness/pain in our muscles through percussion. This tool for soft tissue mobilization can be a helpful recovery tool to effective at helping some people move better and get back to training.
My own issue with many of the massage guns is the price. If you don’t have an extra 2-3 hundred dollars to drop, don’t spend your money. Focus on the basics of recovery as these tools will not make or break you. On the other hand, if you have the $ and are serious about your recovery — this can be a good «tool in the toolbox.»
