id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> Theragun You may be familiar with Theragun, a handheld massage gun that's taken over Instagram with slow-motion videos of athletes' muscles rippling under the device, which looks (and sounds) kind of like a power drill.

The Theragun, and other devices like it, use a tactic called percussive therapy to treat muscle soreness in everyone from professional athletes to weekend warriors. Percussive therapy is said to be effective at speeding up muscle recovery time and reducing pain after a workout.

But does percussive therapy -- and devices like the Theragun -- live up to the hype? And are they the right choice for everyone? Here's what you should know.

What is percussive therapy?
Also called percussion therapy and vibration therapy, percussive therapy is a form of soft tissue manipulation (the same thing that a massage therapist does to you during a massage) intended to reduce muscle soreness and increase range of motion.

Even though some people refer to percussive therapy as vibration therapy, most percussive therapy devices actually use a hammering or thumping movement in addition to vibrations. Some models also use circular motions, and most offer varying speeds and pressure.

What does it do?
A percussive therapy device delivers targeted vibrations and pressure to your muscles as a way to treat and manage muscle soreness, stiffness and decreased range of motion.

Because they are so powerful, it's thought that these devices can reach deeper layers of muscle than human hands, a foam roller or other muscle recovery methods can.

Does percussive therapy actually work?
That depends on what you mean by "work."

A common misconception is that percussive therapy can totally eliminate soreness once it's already present. The truth is that no kind of therapy exists for that. I don't know about you, but even when I get an hour-long deep tissue massage, soreness persists -- the massage just reduces the amount of time I suffer.

Percussive therapy more or 강북출장안마 less does the same thing as massage or self-myofascial release (foam rolling): It increases blood flow to the treated areas, increases skin temperature, reduces muscle inflammation, releases muscle tension and breaks up muscle knots.

>Percussive therapy helps relieve muscle tension and soreness in the same way foam rolling does.

>Getty Images One study concluded that percussive therapy might be very effective as a preventative method for managing delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS), or the slow soreness you can feel creeping up on you until it painfully sets in about 48 hours post-exercise.

>But unlike massage therapy and foam rolling, research on the effectiveness of vibration or percussive therapy for muscle soreness is limited.

>According to TheraGun, the main purpose of percussive therapy isn't actually massage. Instead, percussive therapy aims to mask and override pain signals to your brain, which would make you feel as if the soreness is gone.

>That concept was developed on the basis that a healthy brain reacts to pain signals in milliseconds. By delivering a sensation to the muscles that's even faster than that, your brain can't keep up, so you feel no pain. It's the same philosophy behind transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) units, like Livia.
