Science popularization of fascia gun

      The fascia gun is a kind of soft tissue rehabilitation tool. The fascia gun can be understood as a civil version of DMS (electric deep muscle stimulator). When it is used, the vibration frequency will change, and its basic function is similar to that of DMS, Fascia gun is an effective method for the treatment of soft tissue pain introduced from abroad. It can stimulate its proprioceptive function, and then play an effective role in relieving muscle tension, so as to achieve the purpose of pain relief.
      1、 Development course
      At the NBA Finals in 2017, Cavaliers guard Carey Owen, with the help of a physiotherapist, used a fascia gun to relax his back and thigh muscles and quickly returned to the court. Then the team service, which was widely used in American professional league, began to enter the Chinese market at the end of 2017.
      2、 Mechanism of action
      Fascia gun uses its special high-speed motor to drive the "gun head" to produce high-frequency vibration to the deep muscle, so as to reduce the tension of local tissue, relieve pain, and promote blood circulation
      3、 How to use it
      The round head of fascia gun is generally used in shoulder, back, buttock and thigh; The small round head is used for large area muscles such as arms and legs, and the fascia gun should be used along the direction of human muscle texture and fascia, instead of just hitting the sore points of muscles. However, the head, cervical vertebra, spine and other parts with a large number of nerves and blood vessels can not be used. Each part should not be used for more than 3 to 5 minutes.
      4、 Vibration amplitude
      The amplitude is about 6 mm, and the speed is about 1800-3000
      5、 Vibration frequency
      Fascia gun transmits force and vibration to human fascia through high frequency vibration (1800-3000 times / min), so as to increase tissue blood flow and relax muscles. It can make human tissue produce relative displacement through resonance, reduce tissue adhesion, restore the elasticity of muscle and fascia, relax the tense and stiff fascia, and relieve some discomfort symptoms of human body.
