In the 2017 U.S. Professional Basketball League Finals, Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving, with the help of a physical therapist, used a fascia gun to relax the back and thigh muscles and quickly returned to the court. Later, it was widely used in the team services of the American professional leagues and began to enter the Chinese market at the end of 2017.
Mechanism of action
The fascia gun uses its internal special high-speed motor to drive the "torch head", which produces high-frequency vibration 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. 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.
The amplitude is about 10-16mm, and the frequency is about 30-50Hz.
The fascia gun transmits force and vibration to the fascia of the human body through high-frequency vibration (2000-3200 times/min), thereby increasing the blood flow of the tissues, relaxing the muscles, and can make the human tissues relative displacement through resonance , Reduce tissue adhesion, restore the elasticity of muscles and fascia, relax the tense and stiff fascia, and relieve some of the discomfort symptoms of the human body.
