Theragun - Could Percussive Massage Therapy Help Your Golf Game?

For most athletes, performance and recovery go hand-in-hand. Taking care of your body and giving it the opportunity to repair and heal are vital to ensuring you stay fit and healthy. Theragun by Therabody is one tool making headway in the percussive massage therapy market. Garnering support from professional athletes like Cristiano Ronaldo, Sir Mo Farah, Maria Sharapova and PGA Pro Collin Morikawa.

We’re taking a closer look at the tool being touted as a game-changer by both professionals and everyday people around the globe.And exploring the innovative technology used to power the Therabody brand.

What is Percussive Therapy?

Percussive therapy is a type of soft tissue massage treatment using a drill-like tool. It works by massaging muscles using a repetitive vibration and pulsing movement. The therapy has been proven to help with chronic pain, muscle strain, increases blood circulation, breaks down scar tissue, prevents injury, aids recovery and can even improve sleep.
Theragun uses a precise, scientifically-calibrated 16mm of amplitude, reaching 60 percent deeper into muscle than others on the market. Going beyond mere vibration, Theragun devices leave the surface of the skin at 40x per second. A speed range of 1750-2400 percussions per minute, was scientifically-calibrated to allow the device to target a localised area of the body without eating the brain acclimate to the stimulation.

Born from a Need. Not a Trend.

In 2009, Dr. Jason Wersland was searching for a way to help with his pain after suffering a traumatic motorcycle accident. Using his chiropractic expertise, Wersland set out to create a makeshift tool that would help patients take charge of their daily wellness, and the Theragun was born.
Over the past decade, Theragun has used patient feedback and Wersland’s knowledge to develop tools that offer effective natural solutions to everyone. Today, the company works alongside some of the world’s top physical therapists, trainers, engineers and scientists to ensure their products reflect the latest innovations.
