The Theragun is a neuromuscular pervussive therapy device. The Theragun delivers 2000-2500 RPMs and operates at a frequency or 33-40Hz. This frequency is ideal for blocking pain signals to the brain and allowing your muscles to relax. This relaxation lets the Theregun strike with a percussion that penetrates up to 6 inches which allows you to get deep into those muscle groups. Using the Theragun post workout helps to reduce adhesion between your fascia and muscles. It helps to flush the lactic acid that is responsible for soreness and promotes circulation and lymphatic flow in the affected area which aids in recovery
Using pneumatic (air) compression, the pump pressurizes the different chambers in the boots at different intervals over multiple cycles. The pressurized compartments in the boots squeeze your legs, mobilizing fluids and speeding up your body’s natural process of filtering lactic acid, metabolites, and other debris that build up after exercise-induced trauma out of your blood. Intermittent, dynamic pneumatic compression is a proven way of improving blood circulation and driving higher volumes of healthy, filtered, and oxygen-rich blood to your muscles as they rebuild. This is what significantly reduces the time it takes you to recover and get back to training. Research also reveals multiple additional benefits. For example, dynamic compression mitigates stiffness, increases ROM (range of motion), helps prevent DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), reduces swelling and inflammation, facilitates greater protein absorption, and, over time, enhances muscle performance and longevity.
The term IASTM or “Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization” is commonly paired with the image of steel tools and deep tissue work that can cause redness and bruising on the skin. Some of the tools may be hard-edged, but the techniques don’t need to be aggressive to deliver superior outcomes. By screening dysfunctional movement patterns and utilizing soft tissue tools to improve mobility and reduce soreness we are able to help athletes recover faster and get back to training.
The ancient practice of cupping has been around for thousands of years. Cupping is a manual IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation) therapy based on skin/fascial decompression to help improve tissue mobility, improve movement and modulate pain. This treatment focuses on connective tissue gliding, tissue traction and tissue decompression. Cupping can be used to reduce pain, improve mobility and retrain movement patterns through haptic cueing
