Although percussion massagers such as the Hyperice Hypervolt have a variety of different uses, if you’re expressly seeking to buy one for the specific purpose of targeting back pain, you won’t be disappointed. So the short answer to the question of the Hyperice being good for back pain is a resounding “yes!”
We’re going to be getting into a bit more detail though, so while you wait for the confirmation of your Hyperice’s delivery, why not read on to get a bit more detail about what will become your new best friend in solidarity against back pain?!
So a percussion massage gun like the Hyperice Hypervolt ultimately helps in the reduction of recovery time, achieving this by promoting blood flow and subsequently facilitating more effective oxygenation of the tissue matter making up the various organs and muscles in your body. Naturally then the back, particularly the lower back region, is one of those areas which can be targeted for this kind of relief.
As one of the better percussion massagers around, especially considering what you get for the money you pay, the Hyperic Hypervolt has unmatched effectiveness in reaching the deep muscle tissue you’d want to target to alleviate pain. It works on the principle of promoting blood flow, which means lymph flow is promoted as well, all of which ultimately reduces toxins, enhances movement and ensures some considerable reduction in recovery time.
The Hypervolt might appear to fall a bit short when compared to similar alternatives with a longer handle, but people who have an overall approach to better health and mobility prefer this one with its shorter handle, because it prompts them to go through some stretches to other body parts whenever they want to reach areas such as the upper and lower back. You kind of have to do a “bit of work” to get to the affected areas.
However, that’s only really if you want to use the Hypervolt on yourself. Ideally, you’d want to get someone else to use it on you, as part of their commitment to helping you reach the source areas of your back pain. We’re talking here specifically lower back pain as that’s the most common type of back pain. You can direct them to reach the exact spots you want to target, but as mentioned, you can indeed use it on yourself.
In order to effectively target your lower back pain or any other area on your back on which you’re experiencing pain, what it really comes down to is choosing the right massage head. Fortunately, that’s probably the easiest thing you could ever do, so you won’t take too long to figure it out.
The Hyperice Hypervolt has decent battery life – in fact, it’s more than decent, because even the worst of massage addicts, which isn’t the worst addiction you could have in the world, probably won’t be using it for a massage targeting the lower back for longer than the two-hour battery life. You’ll likely use it at shorter intervals than that.
