The Physio Gun is a state-of-the-art professional rehabilitation and massage equipment. These handheld devices deliver targeted relieve to muscle tension by providing percussive therapy. Percussive therapy uses repetitive pressure and vibration to massage soft tissue. The physio gun has a motor that sends steady pulses through the head of the gun.

Physio Gun functions as therapy for the whole body, allowing the person to bounce back to life and spring into action. It provides optimal relief and relaxation for those with muscle tiredness, including injuries and other body part issues. It is not just a relaxation tool, it's a recovery tool that helps to relieve fatigue after exercise.

At Aspire, we use Physio Gun for patients, fitness enthusiasts and athletes for muscle recovery and to improve their performance.

Physio Gun helps in improving flexibility and ductility of the soft tissues of body such as tendons, ligaments, muscle and fascia by adjusting the vibration frequency.

This tool can help the therapist to:

  • Alleviate Muscle Stiffness and Soreness- Occasional muscle pain or soreness after a workout is normal. This delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is particularly common among people who exercise for the first time after a long break. But it can happen to anyone, even professional athletes.  As per a study, physio guns can help. The review looked at 39 studies and found that using a massage gun right after a workout could lessen DOMS.
  • Increase Blood Circulation- Massage guns apply a combination of percussion and vibration. Two pilot research found that whole-body vibration therapy can enhance blood flow. However, experts –– including athletic trainers and physical therapists –– believe physio guns can help boost blood flow, lessen muscle pain, and support post-workout recovery.
  • Muscle Recovery- A study found that massage and vibration therapy are equally effective in limiting post workout muscle soreness. The researchers found that both methods may also aid recovery after a workout.
  • Improve Range of Motion of joints (flexibility)- Research suggests that massage therapy may enhance flexibility, which could improve athletic performance.
  • Manages Scar Tissues-Research shows that professional massage therapy may limit pain and thickness in burn scars. Percussive therapy might also help with scar tissue because it uses some of the same mechanics as massage therapy.
  • Improve the overall health of the body's soft tissues.

Moreover, it can prevent fasciitis (inflammation of fascia) which is a painful condition and difficult to heal. Inflammation is caused by adhesion between the fascia and muscles. The percussion technology in the physio gun can help relax and relieve pains on feet, calf, shoulders, neck, back, muscle, arms, and legs.

The physical therapist can choose between different vibration speeds to find the best fit for the muscle group.
