Chronic pain affects millions of people around the world. In Germany alone, more than 20 percent of adults - that's one in five people - suffer from chronic pain.
People are sitting still longer than ever before, and this behavior leads to poor circulation, muscle tension and poor posture - all of which in turn leads to pain.
The easiest solution to a lack of exercise is, of course, more exercise. Get up more often, go for a walk, do weight training or yoga - you will see an immediate improvement in your well-being.
However, exercise alone will not solve the problem. If you're struggling with chronic pain due to a sedentary lifestyle, starting an exercise program without a targeted recovery plan can actually make the situation worse.
This is because we often try to compensate for our lack of movement with overly advanced workouts - leading to pain and long-term damage.
The real solution to chronic pain is exercise that matches your fitness level combined with an appropriate muscle recovery routine with the GYMTASTIC® massage gun.
Massage guns are the ideal tool for combating chronic pain. Impact massage increases blood flow to tense, painful muscles. The increased blood flow provides nutrients and oxygen that are necessary for the repair and regeneration of muscle fibers.
The mechanical effect of percussive therapy helps to break up adhesions in the fascia and thus relieve pain and tension.
If you are unsure whether percussive therapy is suitable for your pain relief, it is best to consult your doctor.
Your pain relief routine for percussive therapy
This comprehensive step-by-step routine will help you achieve natural, effective pain relief:
Use the ball head or flat head and stroke each side of your spine. Then switch to the U-head attachment and move the massage gun, starting at the bottom of the spine, up to the neck and back down again. Repeat as required.
Gently and slowly move the U-head attachment from the beginning of your head to the upper trapezius. If you feel any pain, stop the treatment immediately.
Use the flat head or ball head attachment for the hips. Massage each thigh for two to three minutes and then each gluteus medius (the sides of the gluteal muscles) for two to three minutes.
General muscle pain
Each attachment, designed for large muscle groups, helps with general muscle pain. Large-area movements at medium speed allow you to get the most out of your impact massage in just a few minutes.
As an athlete, you know your body best. Use your favorite attachment to massage the muscle groups that you use the most. Use the massage gun directly after training or competition to achieve a preventive effect.
