I had been considering an intense trigger point type massage for a while now and wondered if it was truly worth the investment. I have degenerative discs in my neck and back- I am diligent about weekly massages and chiropractic adjustments as needed but nothing has been able to relieve the pulling and tension in my shoulders/neck. I decided on the Deep Muscle Massage Gun after doing lengthy research and comparing many different models and it has absolutely improved my quality of life and has loosened areas that no other therapies have been able to. The reviews that sold me said it had a quieter and more powerful motor than most- and while I can't compare it myself I can say that the motor noise is minimal, the battery life is fantastic, and the strength is so much more powerful than you would ever guess it could contain. We've let all of our friends and even our chiropractor use it and they've all loved it and wanted one for themselves. We use this everywhere- quads, low back, IT bands, neck, shoulders-- it's amazing! It is definitely possible to do to yourself but even better if you have someone you can trade off with. My fiance' and I have gotten in a routine where we do this a few minutes each night for each other and it has tremendously helped with both of our chronic pain issues. 100% worth every penny we spent. We even pack it when we travel now.
Pulled it out of the box the other day. Fired it up. Ran it for about 5-10 minutes. Could tell an improvement the very next day. Repeated same "thumping" the next day. Am experiencing less pain and feels as though the "nerves" are coming back to life. We'll see what happens over the next few days/weeks. Thus far, am satisfied.
I suffer chronic pain due to my posture. This deep muscle massage gun is equivalent to one my chiropractor used on me years ago. The super fast speed at which it engages the muscle is very beneficial. The massage gun seems to be very well made. It comes with multiple heads and a professional carrying case.
It's not the cheapest, but then I don't want the cheapest. I feel like this is a good value overall.
So far I have been very happy with the power of the unit and the speed control has been a nice feature to play with as well as the rotating arm. I have only used it my legs in place of foam rolling and it seems to do the trick. I have also tickled my wife's feet with it...and that was fun.
