Relieve Sore Muscles With the Hypervolt Massage Gun

Stretching in parkWhile an intense workout at the gym, rigorous nature hike, or 5-mile run can do the body good, sore muscles are inevitable after such activity.

Massage is one of the best ways to alleviate sore muscles, but what if you could treat your body to a massage at home? You can with the Hypervolt Go 2 massage gun, made by Hyperice.

This small but powerful device uses percussive therapy to target sore spots and reduce pain quickly, so you can keep pushing your body further each day. At First State Health & Wellness, we use the device all the time, and our patients love it! We also sell the massage gun for the same price as on Amazon, so you can use it at home too.

How Does Percussive Therapy Work?

The Hypervolt Go 2 massage gun uses percussive therapy to provide deep tissue relief. This form of therapy works by delivering short bursts of high-frequency vibrations that penetrate deep into the muscle tissue.

What Are Some Benefits?

By targeting these vibrations directly at your problem areas, you can experience the following benefits:

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Breaks up adhesions in your muscles
  • Helps to improve blood flow
  • Reduces tension
  • Restores flexibility

Plus, it’s quick—it only takes about 10 minutes for most people to experience significant relief from their sore muscles.
The effects of this massage gun were revealed in a 2020 study referenced in the Journal of Sports Science & Medicine. In the study, the Hypervolt instrument (the standard one) we have in our office was used. In the study, the subjects’ plantar flexor muscles, range of motion and performance were measured.

The subjects received percussion therapy for five minutes on the back of the calf muscles, and they were then checked with a dynamometer to find out the power and range of motion of the ankle. The study concluded that the subjects’ range of motion was increased without the loss of power.

What Are Some Features?

The Hypervolt Go 2 features three adjustable speed settings (1000-3200 percussions per minute), so you can customize your therapy sessions to meet your needs. It comes with two interchangeable head attachments that can be used for different areas of your body—including hard-to-reach spots like your lower back or shoulders. Because the device is cordless and rechargeable, it’s easy to use both at home or while traveling.
