Percussion Therapy helps distribute the thickened fascia fluid to relieve the pressure and tightness you feel. Repeated pressure at high speed thins the fluids, making the fascia more pliable so that your muscle can move more easily and efficiently.

Five Benefits of Percussion Therapy
1. Prevents Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness
Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness happens when you engage in a physical activity that stresses your muscles beyond their usual limit. It’s annoying, dreadful, and could last for 24 to 72 hours after your workout. Percussion therapy can provide a fast remedy.
The therapy improves muscular strength, power development, and kinesthetic awareness. It also effectively improves muscle performance which may prevent delayed onset muscle soreness.
A 2020 study in the European Review of Ageing and Physical Activity showed that percussion therapy can improve physical performance. Especially if you’re suffering from sarcopenia, an age-related condition where adults gradually lose muscle mass and strength.
Percussion therapy prevents any muscular damage caused by a workout. It also reduces the body’s perception of pain by disrupting the pain signals that the brain sends to your body. Thanks to percussion therapy, you don’t have to endure any post-workout aches anymore.
2. Improves Flexibility
In addition to pain reduction, percussion therapy also synchronizes your muscle spindles which results in a better range of motion. Once muscles become flexible, they become much less prone to injuries and pains. Your flexibility will also improve your posture and balance.
Your stiff neck, sore back or aching muscles may be due to thickened fascia, layers of tissue and fluid that surround and stabilize your bones, muscles, nerves and blood vessels. Certain factors, such as repetitive movement, trauma or limited physical activity (such as sleeping), can cause the fascia to thicken and tighten up around the muscles. When that happens, you’re left with pain and limited mobility.
It helps distribute the thickened fascia fluid to relieve the pressure and tightness you feel. Repeated pressure at high speed thins the fluids, making the fascia more pliable so that your muscle can move more easily and efficiently.
3. Increases Blood Circulation
Overtraining causes severe muscle pain. One of the causes is that lactic acid builds up in your muscles whenever you do an intense workout. The therapy increases blood circulation which helps minimize muscle tension and inflammation.
4. Gives Way to a Better Lymphatic Flow
5. Offers Quick Relief to Muscle Soreness
Percussion therapy can improve the muscle strength of athletes, activate bone formation, enhance bone strength, and even decrease muscle tremors. It can also expedite the rehabilitation process of muscles that suffered from trauma, disease, or surgery. Plus, percussion therapy can also be helpful in aiding insomnia, decreasing stress, and reducing cellulite.
When to Use Percussion Therapy
Before a workout: Massaging the muscles you’ll be using before a workout warms them and decreases the chance of injury. Use percussion therapy on multiple muscle groups including calves and thighs to prep them for activity.
After a workout: When you make this therapy part of your post-workout routine, you decrease the chance of muscle soreness that typically sets in immediately and for days after.
Whenever you have muscle tension or stress: Percussion therapy can improve your range of motion and muscle movement. In the evening, it offers deep relaxation that may help you sleep.
