Myofascial trigger points and Massage Gun Mini
Myofascial trigger points are a fancy way to say ‘knots in your muscle’. A knot occurs when the muscle fibers or the bands of tissue called fascia underneath them tense and tighten.
These knots do two things,
1. Be annoying to touch and
2. Restrict range of motion.
The most common is your traps and your calf. Lower back occurs, as does the neck. If you let it get chronic, you may get referred pain (ie, touch it and the pain moves around).
Go to a physio or massage therapist and they will say ‘this is caused by lifting in a repetitive motion’. Deep down you will be proud they are complimenting you on the consistency of your reps, but that does not stop the giant painful bulge of pain in your calf.
Given you are unlikely to stop your repetitive movement, you need to be proactive in decreasing the tension. So your choices are stretching and self-massage. We sourced the mini for this reason (I have a continual knot in the soleus muscle of my calf since I started lifting, its back when I do volume).
The mini is smaller, its cheaper and it's a do-er. If you have a knot that restricts movement pre-training, you can chuck this in your bag, and aggressively deal with the issue pre-training. Knots are more easily moved when you are warm, so attacking between each warmup is a good idea.
If the knot is in your trap, it a little easier to get with this smaller gun, but if you are big, you might need to ask someone to help you nail that bulge of pain.
So, there you go, a new massage gun in our range, chosen for a specific purpose. Still strong enough for home use, still with 6 heads (two metal) and still multi-speed.
