Percussive Massage in Buffalo
What is Percussive Massage therapy?
Percussive massage therapy is the application of a massage gun to applicable areas. Using a percussive massage machine, physical therapists apply rapid repetitive pressure on specific points of the body. Percussive massage is able to work deeper into the muscle than vibration therapy. There has even been research published by the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research that has found percussive therapy to be as effective as massage therapy in preventing onset muscle soreness. It's a treatment that has been utilized by athletes both professional and recreational alike, and when in the hands of a professional such as the doctors here at BC + PT can be beneficial to patients who have pain in their soft tissue.
