Are those massage guns bad for your physical health?

I'll try to make this short but I want to give as much detail as possible.

I'm 57 years old and have tried everything for my back pain. I was a driver for years and I feel like that made me develop this pain. I tried different doctors different medications. I don't like taking medications. I think the meds made me worse since I couldn't feel the dang pain!

I ordered one of those massage guns because I saw an ad saying they were helping back pain. I googled for different ones then bought the (edit) Then I saw an ad saying those things are bad for you. I tried it out I felt better I don't know if it was placebo but I think it's helping. The article saying it was bad was a (edit)article. I've used it every time I feel my muscles getting a tad tense. I don't know if anyone else has tried this and it's helped them or if it's bad for me long term and just works right now?
