If you’re like most other fitness enthusiasts, working out is an important part of your overall health and wellbeing!
However, going to work during the day whether you are sitting in the office or on your feet, can cause you to feel sore and tired making it difficult to keep up with yourself.
This may be from a few causes that are very simple to treat and overcome by yourself.
So, is a massage gun the right tool for you?
One of the most affordable, accessible, and easiest forms of self-treatment is percussion therapy.
What is percussion therapy?
Percussion therapy is a massage technique designed to treat soft tissue pain such as sore muscles.
How does it work?
Percussion therapy can be done quickly and easily by anyone because of self-treatment devices such as massage guns.
Massage guns work by producing quick and repetitive strikes to the muscle designed to relieve muscle tension and soreness and increase blood flow to the treated area.
5 signs a massage gun is right for you
1. You have extremely sore muscles
If you have extremely sore muscles, you may be experiencing the symptoms of Delayed Onset Muscle soreness or DOMS.
DOMS is a very sore/aching feeling you may experience after doing unfamiliar or intense exercise.
Although DOMS cannot always be completely avoided, there are a few ways you can reduce the severity of the symptoms.
If you’re experiencing DOMS, one of the most effective ways of reducing symptoms is from improving your recovery routine post-workout.
One of the quickest and easiest ways to improve your post-workout recovery routine is with a massage gun.

3. You don't have time to warm up before workouts
Neglecting warming up your muscles before a workout has an impact on how your body performs during workouts, how it feels after your workouts, and preventing injuries.
What does a good warm up look like? And how long should it be?
A good warmup routine should feel like your body is warm and ready to progress into the bigger movements of the workout.
An effective warmup needs to engage the same muscle groups that will be used throughout the workout.
For example, if you are preparing for a weight’s session focusing on your shoulders and chest, your warmup should be focused on your shoulders and chest.
An ideal warm-up should raise your body temperature and increase blood flow to your muscles.
A massage gun is great for this!
Within 30 seconds, a massage gun increases blood flow to the muscle it’s being applied to, making it the perfect tool to help you warm up when time is against you!
4. You experience pain and fatigue from your office job
If you’re sitting at a desk for your job, there’s no doubt that you’ve experienced pain and fatigue from sitting for extended periods of time!
So how can you manage pain and fatigue in the office? Or even better, how can you prevent it all together?

Is your work leaving you too sore to work out?
