Massage guns for injuries
Yeah yeah smutty comments, I know.
Are these things good for loosening up small injuries and muscle tears etc? Better than just a thumb?Posted 2 days ago
Talk about these seems very popular currently. I’ve had impact treatment as physio with good results, but would be concerned with uneducated placement of one of these. I’d love to hear an experts view of self-treatment.Posted 2 days ago
In the past it seems I’ve had minor injuries and they’ve healed up poorly so I’ve got a couple of ‘knots’ if you like on the outside of my calf. I can knead them with my thumbs and it seems to help but it’s tricky to actually do so I’m wondering if a gun would help that kind of thing.Posted 2 days ago
I have one and I think they are quite effective. One of the benefits of seeing a therapist is the “hands on” stuff such as deep tissue massage, manipulation etc. These mimic this to some extent and allow you to treat more often and for less serious muscle pain.Posted 2 days ago
I got one of these off eBay. Seems pretty good.

What kind?Posted 2 days ago
I bought one recently and having also studied sports therapy, although never really practiced, i do have to say i find them pretty damn effective for small muscle injuries and general post sports/exercise soreness. As long as people aren’t trying to treat a herniated disc or similar with them i think they are a great tool.Posted 2 days ago
I’ve got a £50 Amazon voucher, am I wasting my time with that?
Do I want the gun kind with different heads (which feels like the right choice) or the pad kind? It’s to release knots and target stuff like ITB rather than general aches.Posted 2 days ago
I was given on a while back much better than the banchory vibrators for sale as it’s cordless no chance of strangling yourself but I ended up giving it away. You will maybe use it once then put in the cupboard or charity shopPosted 2 days ago
Cant recall, I will try to find the model but I only paid about £30 from Amazon, some generic model but it seems robust enough. Sure the more expensive ones are better but I think it helped me with some persistent calf injuries I was having.
edit: I have only used the ball attachment.Posted 2 days ago
The one that i have was from Amazon, it called a Wattne W2. Seems very well made and is pretty robust, comes with 6 different heads.Posted 2 days ago
I’ve got a Renpho, no idea how it compares to others but it seems to work OK.Posted 1 day ago
