Do you have any doubts about the safety of massage guns? The answer is both yes and no. 

Massage guns are safe for individuals who have been cleared to exercise and do not have an underlying ailment that would preclude them from massaging a muscle.

Like any other technology, a massage gun may be used appropriately or badly. Many of the contraindications and danger zones for using massage guns are left out of the instructions that come with the machine. It's critical to understand if you should even have a massage in the first place and which parts of your body should not be rubbed.

Massage guns are percussion massage tools. Percussion is used to improve blood flow. Some people should avoid receiving any massage that increases blood flow. These people have specific forms of cancer, Covid-19, heart problems, infection, and fever. If you have any risk factors, you should speak with your doctor before using a massage gun.

Suppose you have any broken bones, torn tendons or ligaments. In that case, it is advisable not to use a massage gun on such regions unless a medical expert has expressly prescribed and given recommendations. Without competent medical assistance, you risk causing more damage to places that may or may not be reversible. Massage with a massage gun to other sections of the body that are not impacted by these injuries is acceptable, but not at the site of damage.
