Massage Gun vs Scar Tissue

Updated: Aug 2, 2021

๐Ÿ“น #TherapyTuesdays with @GallowayLMBT :: AquaPro MASSAGE GUN ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ”ซ vs 2005 ruptured Achilles tendon SCAR TISSUE ๐Ÿฆถ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ฅ

In 2005 I tore my Achilles tendon. The doctors at UNC Hospital (Chapel Hill, NC) were able to repair the complete rupture. (You can see the reattachment point by following my finger in the video.) Unfortunately, underwhelming rehab led to a horrible amount of scar tissue and knots developing in/around my ankle. (You'll notice the tension when the gun begins to 'jump like a jackhammer' over parts of my foot/ankle.)๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ Recently, in addition to deep tissue massage and reflexology, I've started using a massage gun to break up the scar tissue in hopes of reducing my discomfort and restoring a larger range of motion with my foot/ankle. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿพ So far, so good. I'm starting to experience a little bit of relief.
