Okay, so we’ve covered what you do at the gym after a tweaked back, but what do you do the rest of the time?
I personally am a big fan of using massage devices.
I use what’s called the Hitachi magic wand, a dildo looking device that if you’re into that, could I suppose be dual-use.
But, it’s dirt cheap and helps ease your muscle fibers into relaxing.
The only downside is, my wife won’t let me leave it out in the home gym with guests over.
To use it, just move into a position where the affected muscle starts tensing and then hold the device against it and let it vibrate out the tension.
Typically it takes 30-60 seconds before the pain is gone and the tension releases. I’ll do this a few times throughout the day.
I know a lot of you have those therapeutic punching gun drill things.
I don’t recommend them only because you are trying to get the muscle to relax, you’re not trying to beat the sh** out of it. But, that’s my personal opinion.
But, you do you.
