Why buy an expensive fascia gun?
Mechanism of action
The fascia gun uses its internal special high-speed motor to drive the "torch head" to generate high-frequency vibrations to the deep layer of the muscles to reduce local tissue tension, relieve pain, and promote blood circulation.
How to use
The large round head of the fascia gun is generally used for shoulders, buttocks, and thighs; the small round head is used for large areas of muscles such as arms and calves. The fascia gun needs to be used along the muscle texture and fascia direction of the human body, and cannot be used only at the painful points of the muscles. The head, cervical spine, spine and other parts with a large number of nerves and blood vessels cannot be used. The duration of use for each part should not exceed 3 to 5 minutes.
Fascia gun can help improve the pain symptoms of patients with fasciitis, and the vibration frequency is stable, which can promote the recovery of muscles and soft tissues. The relevant person in charge of the Rehabilitation Treatment Committee of the Chinese Society of Rehabilitation Medicine stated that vibration can promote the recovery of muscles and surrounding soft tissues or eliminate fatigue, which indirectly affects the repair of tissues. In other words, the fascia gun can help improve the pain symptoms of patients with fasciitis, and the vibration frequency is stable, which can promote the recovery of muscles and soft tissues.
After exercise, muscle tension, lactic acid accumulation, hypoxia, especially after excessive exercise, the muscles are very stiff and it is difficult to recover on their own. The outer layer of human muscles will be wrapped by a layer of fascia, so that the muscle fibers can contract in an orderly direction to achieve a better functional state. After excessive exercise, the muscle fascia will be swollen or squeezed, causing soreness and discomfort. Fascia gun is an external physical method to solve muscle tension and other problems, similar to the role of ligament stretching, muscle stretching, and auxiliary massage after professional athletes have finished training. There is still a difference between using and not using it. With the help of the fascia gun, the recovery time and efficiency after exercise will be improved. The rational and correct use of the fascia gun can indeed help relieve muscle soreness after exercise.
In sports exercise, the use of fascia gun can be divided into three parts, namely warm-up before exercise, activation during exercise, and recovery after exercise.
Before exercise, use the fascia gun to quickly impact the muscles you want to exercise, increase the temperature and blood flow of the muscles, and help achieve the effect of rapid warm-up.
Use the fascia gun in the interval between the two sets of exercises to activate the tired muscles again and prepare for the next set of exercises.
The vibration of the fascia gun has high and low frequencies, and the high frequency plays a role a little shallower. If it is a deep muscle, use more low frequency, the low frequency impact will be slower and longer lasting. The application of high frequency is more of friction, which generates heat through friction, which is more suitable for relieving muscle stiffness.
After exercise, use a fascia gun, according to the principle of trigger points, to impact the muscles after a long time to help metabolize lactic acid and reduce muscle tension. For example, after doing push-ups, use a fascia gun to hit the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor muscles for more than two minutes.
Fascia gun purchase parameters
For tens of dollars, the impact is large, unstable, and the amplitude and strength are sometimes large and sometimes small. Especially the core part of the motor of the fascia gun may be guaranteed by big brands. The cheap fascia gun on the market does not have the effect of deep hitting and relaxation at all. It is a "vibrator" in the form of simple vibration, which obviously cannot To meet the demands of consumers, brush motors are basically used, and some even use low-quality motors, which lack a protection mechanism and are likely to cause harm to the human body. There are some fascia guns on the market with a rotation speed higher than 3000 rpm, the vibration force is too large, but it is easy to cause damage. The fascia gun between 2000-3000 revolutions can produce better results.
1. Motor (brushless or brushed motor); 2. Noise; 3. Battery capacity (maximum battery life), the battery should not be too small, otherwise the massage will be out of place; 4. Effective amplitude; 5. Gear is not over The more the better, the three gears with obvious distinctions of high, medium and low are enough. For example, the more than 30 gears advertised by some brands are not practical; the quality of entry-level fascia guns is uneven and can only achieve the basics. The vibration is not a real massage tool."
