Here’s How The Hypervolt Relaxes Muscles & Boosts Recovery
The Hyperice Hypervolt – Now At Ascent Chiropractic!
It’s no secret that my patients love the Hypervolt – it may just be the best method of relaxing tight muscles before an adjustment or recovering from a tough workout.
And due to popular demand, they’re finally available for purchase at Ascent Chiropractic in Brookfield for a special discounted professional price of $299, a $50 savings from the regular retail price of $349. This pricing is in-office only and while supplies last.
What does the Hypervolt do, exactly?
The Hypervolt device works through vibration and percussion therapy, using a unique combination of frequency, amplitude and torque to create an oscillation back and forth at different speeds and depths into soft tissue.
The idea is that you apply the massage device to your connective tissue as it reps out 40 beats per second, in order to relieve muscle tension. Translation: these aren’t your average hand massagers or massage chairs.
They essentially do what a lacrosse ball or foam roller does: loosen muscles, relieve tension, boost recovery, and improve circulation. However, where it can be difficult to isolate certain muscle groups with a foam roller (such as the paraspinal muscles), the head attachments on the Hypervolt allow you to really hit every part of a muscle.
Plus, the unique frequencies of the Hypervolt can also inhibit the brain from feeling the acute pain you might experience while working soft tissue. This is because of something called the ‘gate phenomenon’ – a nerve fiber can only carry one message at a time, so the vibration signal essentially overrides the pain signals going to the brain.
In fact, studies have clinically proven vibrating technology to be effective at reducing delayed-onset-muscle-soreness, aka DOMS.
How to use a Hypervolt
With any advanced technology like the Hypervolt, it’s important to understand just how powerful it is. Start with a small region of soft tissue and work with it for a maximum of 2 minutes. Anything longer than two minutes or static work has the potential to irritate the region, and/or create an opposite reaction of decreased blood flow due to compression.
Avoid using the tool on acute injuries, or directly on tendons, nerves or nerve bundles because they can become inflamed and irritated. Keep it to muscle bellies, not near joints.
And remember, deeper is not necessarily better or more effective. Start with lighter work for less time. Be patient, consistent and purposeful in taking care of your body.
