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 to solve muscle tension and other problems through external physical means, similar to the function 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 a fascia gun to quickly impact the muscles you want to exercise, so that the temperature and blood flow of the muscles will increase, which will help to achieve a quick warm-up effect.
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, the low frequency is used more, and 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.
