Using this product incorrectly may result in pain or damage to parts of your body that may be more delicate. This massage tool is designed primarily for use on muscles that are able to withstand the pressure that is given by the machine. The HY-Impact Massager delivers bursts of pressure radiating from the head of the tool. These bursts of pressure are said to loosen tight muscles and stiffness by relaxing the muscles. This product is also designed to relieve pain and soreness of the muscles, especially when used on a regular basis. The HY-Impact Massager claims to relieve muscle stiffness and soreness on every part of your body with regular use.
The whole package comes with seven head attachments, a carrying case, two rechargeable lithium-ion batteries with charger, and the Theragun itself. While you’ll have to pay for the luxury the G4 Pro offers, it’s easily the best percussion massager on the market today. There are many of these devices on the market, which can make it tough to separate the best massage guns from low-quality ones.
In the treated group after 3 months, BMD of the lumbar region increased by 1.3% and 4.3% in the sixth month. Bone mineral density in the control group decreased in the third month, but the results were not statistically significant. In the sixth month BMD decreased in this group by 1.9%. In the research group, BMD of the femoral neck region increased slightly after the vibration therapy after 3 months, but without statistical significance. In the control group BMD was not significantly reduced in the third month, but decreased significantly in the sixth month (1.7%) compared with the baseline results. In the treated vibratory group also chronic back pain decreased, which was assessed by the Visual Analogue Scale .
It has a decent warranty , and the neck can move into three different positions. But overall it felt plasticky, and our struggles with the adjustment dial threw us off. Compared with the Theragun Prime, the Hypervolt 2 has a lower amplitude and fewer speeds , though it does have a slightly higher maximum speed . The Hypervolt 2 has a traditional shape—unlike the triangular shape of the Theragun Prime, which allows for a few different ways to hold the device—and is slimmer and more petite. It has a comfortable oval handle with a nice grippy surface and the second-narrowest diameter among our picks. (People with smaller hands might appreciate the size.) But overall, due to the shape and orientation of its handle, it doesn’t offer quite the flexibility that the Theragun Prime does.
Plus, it’s lighter than the original Hypervolt, has a longer battery life, and features a more streamlined design. This soft foam/rubber shaped ball is a great attachment for beginners or when using your percussion massager for the first time. You can generally use it on any part of your body for a relaxing percussive massage. It feels great on the back of the neck and bottom of the foot.
The entry-level Rybozen gun uses a simple set of LEDs to show the mode used, the middle contender a large LCD screen and the Theragun Elite a small OLED. The Theragun Elite feels better than optavia tuna either of the two cheaper models, proving more-or-less instantly you don’t get exactly the same experience for much less cash. The Theragun Elite has none of the same build worries.
They’re both types of soft tissue manipulation, which experts believe reduce muscle soreness and post-workout fatigue. A stronger stimulator of osteogenesis is the effort performed in the upright position than in the horizontal, which explains the good effects of the vibration therapy. Whole-body vibration increases the level of growth hormone and testosterone in serum, preventing sarcopenia and osteoporosis . Vibration exercise also increases muscle strength and neuromuscular coordination, which in the case of patients with osteoporosis can reduce the risk of falls resulting in broken bones.
