Which Massage Gun Head
Massage guns, or percussion guns, usually come with several heads or attachments. Here’s a general overview of what each one can be used for, and what area of the body it works on best.
Relaxing Stretches
Muscles and joints can become sore and irritated for many reasons including stress, over working the muscles, or an injury. These gentle stretches should help relieve sore muscles and joints.
Basic Core Exercises
Core exercises are very important to have a healthy and stable back as well as the whole body. The core is not only the front, sides, and back of the trunk, but it is also the pelvic floor. When first starting core exercises, it is best to try modified ones first and then progress to harder movements as the core gets stronger.
Side Sleepers
Finding a comfortable position to sleep at night can be challenging for some people. People who sleep on their sides and suffer from back, hip, and/or shoulder pain may find these tips helpful to get a better night’s sleep.

Improve your gait
PTs will often analyze your gait by watching you get up and walk across the room, but most of the time we are analyzing your gait as soon as you walk into the clinic. If you have been diagnosed with gait abnormalities, these stretches and exercises might help.
Use a TENS Unit
TENS units & EMS units can be very helpful when recovering from an injury or surgery. The two are very different, but often come together in one unit like the iStim EV-805 unit I use in this video.
Walk with a Cane Correctly
Doctor Jo shows you the correct way to walk with a cane if you have an injury.
Squat Safely
We squat every day from sitting down in a chair to getting out of bed, or even sitting safely on the toilet, but squats can be a painful task when something hurts, or our muscles are weak. Practicing squats in a reverse order can help strengthen the muscles and work on doing them correctly and safely.
