Percussion Manager: How to Alleviate Your Shoulder Pain

You could wake up one day with shoulder pain that makes it harder to raise your shoulder and gets worse when you try to move it. You may get so frustrated trying to figure out what is wrong that you can’t relax, but any attempt at touching the area just makes the problem worse. 

You may get so frustrated trying to figure out what is wrong with it that you can’t relax, but any attempt at touching the area just makes the problem worse. Using a percussion manager may be the solution you need.

Here is everything you need to know about using a percussion manager.

What Causes Shoulder Pain?

There are many different causes of shoulder pain. Being in a certain position for a long time can cause it, doing something repetitive can cause it, or it may be due to an injury.

If you are having trouble with your shoulders, you may have a rotator cuff tear, inflammation in the bursa, or a frozen shoulder. It is essential to find out what is causing the pain and how to get rid of it.

What Is a Percussion Manager?

A percussion manager is a removable, elastic strip of fabric that is used to help tear apart scar tissue and free the rotator cuff muscles. This can help relieve the pain in your shoulder, allowing the muscles and tendons to heal.

The fabric is typically thicker at one end and tapered at the other. When you use it, you hold the narrower end and apply pressure or tap gently with your elbow, forearm, or knuckles. This helps the shoulder repair and heal, and it also increases the range of motion.

How to Use a Percussion Manager

You can use a percussion manager by gently holding it and applying pressure, or you can use it by tapping it with your elbow, forearm, or knuckles. The latter may be more comfortable.

The tapping should always be soft and never painful. While you are using it, you may find it is necessary to grasp the ball, on the other hand, to get to the areas of pain.

When you use a percussion manager, you can use it alone or with the ball. 

Where Are Your Trigger Points on the Shoulder?

When looking for the trigger points on your shoulders, do not go too deep because that may cause more pain. The key is to find the right spot and start there.

Your trigger points are located in the FSR (frozen shoulder region) and they are usually near the top, bottom, or sides of your shoulder.

A frozen shoulder is an inflammation that causes the shoulder to become stiff and it can be very painful. It can also join other muscles in the shoulder causing more pain.

Trigger points can prevent you from doing many everyday tasks, including reaching overhead, lifting your arms overhead, reaching behind you, and more.

It can cause you to have to rely on your other arm to help you out, and that can be exhausting after a while. The point of relieving the trigger points is so that you can perform everyday tasks with your shoulder again.

Conclusion

If you are struggling to do everyday tasks because of your shoulder, you may be experiencing shoulder pain. You can use a percussion manager alone or with a ball, and it is easy to hold onto. It can also help you with your range of motion.
