id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> Angela Lang/CNET If you've ever wanted to recover from workouts like a pro, then you should know about the Theragun. The power-drill-like massage gun device is a favorite of celebrities, pro athletes and fitness trainers that swear by it. The device is not that new (it launched in 2016), but it gained popularity more recently, thanks in part to the fitness community, as well as celebrities who are fans, such as Chelsea Handler, Sam Smith and Ashley Graham. (Not to mention the recent rise in the popularity of recovery techniques, methods and studios in the wellness space.)  

48340734667_9b88cf8220_b.jpgThe basic concept behind how the Theragun works is through the use of percussive therapy. The vibration and force produced by the device is said to have a variety of benefits including pain relief, increased range of motion, reduced muscle stiffness and soreness, and a faster recovery time from workouts. 

But if you've ever had the chance to try a Theragun or other similar percussive therapy device, chances are you felt a bit confused about how exactly to use it at first. The key to getting the most out of your therapy device is by using it properly -- here's how.

How to use a Theragun for workout recovery
The Theragun aids in helping move lactic acid out of the muscles that you fatigued during exercise, which makes it ideal for workout recovery. It's what other techniques like massage or foam rolling also aim to do, but Lissa Bankston, director of human performance at Theragun, argues that percussive Post surgery physical therapy can help produce a more effective result, and in less time.

The Theragun G3 model is the quietest of all models and sells for $399.

Theragun Theragun can also be a solution for those who are too sensitive to deep tissue massages, since the device can produce a similar effect without the deep pressure that can be uncomfortable or painful for some people. 

And while the Theragun is not inexpensive by any means (models start at $249 and up) it could save you money if you use it instead of (or to occasionally replace) regular massage therapy sessions, which typically run $100 and up per session.

So how and when should you use a Theragun to help you recover from a workout?

"When it comes to recovery, I do think it's best to do it right after and to use it frequently. I recommend using it for at least two minutes on the muscles you think will be sore. And then other muscles you can spot treat for 30 seconds to one minute," Bankston said.
