I’ve been on and off in physical therapy for the last 5-6 years of my life (I play basketball and have terrible connective joints where the muscle connects to the bone, so I’m always having hamstring / groin problems). When I focus on just lifting, the problems go away, because my strength goes up and all the cutting and running and all that bullshit is out the window. However, I love the game too much, so I’ve dealt with the therapy.
However, I’ve noticed that for all the therapy, it’s mostly just rub-downs (which I can do, or get someone else to do), and electric stim…so I’ve decided to just flat out buy one of those fancy machines.
My question is which models are the best, and what should I expect to pay for it?
Additionally - is it smart to use a machine like that (on lower settings) on off days? Say, after a heavy chest day, put it on my chest for like ten minutes, to say, stimulate recovery?
I’m not a physical therapist or a trainer, so I don’t really know, so I’m asking y’alls advice.
Thanks, looking forward to hearing from you…
