The continual taps help muscles chill out and heal. A massage gun works great to assist relieve knee pain. Specializing in the muscles across the knee will help loosen up the world and relieve pain. The quads, IT band and tensor fasciae latae (TFL), hamstrings, calves, and even the anterior tibialis are the foremost muscles that cross the knee joint or affect the knee joint when tight or not balanced.
Like a conventional massage, a percussion massager helps to scale back inflammation and increasing circulation. It will probably help chill out tight muscles, break up scar tissue and adhesions, and minimize muscle soreness and tension. Some studies have found percussive therapy to be as effective as massage in stopping DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness).
On this video, I’m using the iReliev Wireless Percussion Massager. Along with being wireless, the unit could be very quiet, and it comes with 4 different head attachments to focus on various areas. It also features a nice carrying case to maintain all the things organized and in a single place.
