      Points for attention of fascia gun

       1. Bone protrusion of upper and lower limbs

       It is located at the lateral side of the knee joint, and there is a bulge at the upper end of the leg, called fibular head. There is common peroneal nerve around it, which is very superficial. If it is injured, it will have foot drop, toe can't be extended back, foot sensory disturbance, etc., and the fascia gun can't touch around fibular head. In front of the knee, it is the protrusion of the tibial tubercle, which can not be hit with a fascia gun.

       The medial side of the elbow is where the ulnar nerve groove passes through. Sometimes the forearm will be numb when touching it. Because the ulnar nerve is very superficial here, you can't touch it with a fascia gun. The anterolateral part of the shoulder, anatomically known as the great tubercle, is the place where the rotator cuff is attached, and cannot be touched with a fascia gun.

       2. Around the neck

       There are many nerves and blood vessels passing through the side and front of the neck, and there are nerve reflex receptors, which are very sensitive and fragile. If fascia gun is used in these places, the risk is great.

       3. Around the clavicle, under the armpit, upper arm and popliteal fossa

       These places are full of brachial plexus and its branches, supraclavicular artery, brachial artery and other important nerves and blood vessels. Popliteal fossa refers to the fossa behind the knee joint, in which there are popliteal artery, nerve, etc., and the position is shallow. Once the injury is very serious, these positions can not be directly hit by fascia gun.
