What Is Hypervolt Vibration Massage?

Core Physical Therapy and Sports Performance in Morgan City, LA is proud to introduce one of its newest physical therapy treatments to ease sore muscles, improve circulation, and reduce pain. The Hypervolt is a state-of-the-art vibration massage therapy device that uses rapid percussions to treat and relieve sore and stiff muscles.

How Does The Hypervolt Massage Gun Work?

The Hypervolt looks like a massage gun and is powered by a high torque motor that can deliver up to 3,200 percussions per minute. To fit your unique needs for relief and recovery, Hypervolt is designed with 3 speed settings and a variety of head attachments that can easily target specific areas that need relief. We often us the Hypervolt for patients’ spine, quadriceps, upper trapezius, and calf muscles.

Who is The Hypervolt For?

At our physical therapy clinic in Louisiana, The Hypervolt is often used for orthopedic physical therapy, or for athletes looking to up their performance. According to research, vibration massage therapy can be beneficial to muscular systems and tendons because it mimics exercise and positively influences muscle function and coordination. The Hypervolt can also help to increase blood circulation and improve the overall health of soft tissue. This increase of blood to the area being treated delivers fresh hemoglobin and platelets, which help to heal damaged tissue.

When Should The Hypervolt Be Used?

We will often use The Hypervolt after patients perform physical activity to help prevent future injuries and relieve muscle pain. Vibration massage therapy can also be used as a way to warm up the muscles at the beginning of a physical therapy session or to help loosen muscles that are overly tight. After the use of the Hypervolt, your physical therapist will often follow up the treatment with manual therapy such as stretching or cupping.

It’s important to keep in mind that The Hypervolt gun, as with all treatments, is not a cure. However, when used correctly as a complement with other physical therapy treatments, the vibration massager can be a useful tool to deliver soft tissue mobilization and pain relief.
