Percussive Massage Therapy for knee pain relief is a new rehab treatment that uses fast, soft pulses over a short amount of time to get deep down into the muscle fibers.

The continuous taps help muscles relax and heal. A percussion massager (aka massage gun) works great to help relieve knee pain. Focusing on the muscles around the knee will help loosen up the area and relieve pain. The quads, IT band and tensor fasciae latae (TFL), hamstrings, calves, and even the anterior tibialis are the main muscles that cross the knee joint or affect the knee joint when tight or not balanced.

Like a traditional massage, a percussion massager helps to reduce inflammation and increasing circulation. It can help relax tight muscles, break up scar tissue and adhesions, and minimize muscle soreness and tension. Some studies have found percussive therapy to be as effective as massage in preventing DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness).

In this video, I’m using the iReliev Wireless Percussion Massager. In addition to being wireless, the unit is very quiet, and it comes with four different head attachments to target various areas. It also includes a nice carrying case to keep everything organized and in one place.
