anyone use a theragun or percussive massager on injection sites after injecting?

Yup, I use it regularly and it definitely eliminates any PIP for me completely. Love that thing, great for breaking up scar tissue from lifting and pinning as well.

Never used it right after pinning but I may try it next time. They're awesome in general.

They are! I get wicked, WICKED sciatic pain in my calf and the Purewave I have is a lifesaver. Honestly never thought to try it for PIP though

I found it useful when I partially tore my hamstring. I used it after it had healed to break up scar tissue. Deff worked.

If it's real pip then I probably wouldn't use a percussion massager. I would use a heating pad first and if it's bad maybe some gentle foam rolling and lots of flexing of that muscle (light banded pressdowns for triceps for example). Haven't had a bad case like that since dhb though.

Ouch. Hammies are the one spot I need to be careful with. Once I get it dialed in it's magic though. I'd be super cautious the first time using it after a tear though.

Yep. I waited till the hammy was fully healed and basically just really tight from not being able to use it + scar tissue. I wouldn't theragun an injured muscle.

Just a heads up, you can build yourself a percussion massager for a fraction of the price of a Theragun. It’ll cost next to nothing if you already own a jigsaw too.

Just google it and you’ll find tons of how-to websites and videos. It’s incredibly easy.
