1. Is the fascia gun an IQ tax?

Let’s first take a look at the source events of the fascia gun:

In the 2017 NBA Finals, a Cavaliers guard, with the help of a physical therapist, used a fascia gun to relax his back and thigh muscles and help him return to the court quickly. Then it was widely used in team services in American professional leagues and then entered the Chinese market at the end of 2017.

Let’s take a look at the development of fascia guns in our country:

The 315 party mentioned in the chapter “Building a better life with the development of the digital economy” that the sales data of the e-commerce platform shows that the sales of fascia guns in the first half of the year increased by 2177%. According to data from an e-commerce platform, sales of fascia guns on the platform increased 20 times year-on-year during the epidemic.

The above two incidents have strongly proved that the fascia gun is indeed effective, not an IQ tax product.

2. Do you need a fascia gun?

Let’s first understand the working principle of the wonderful fascia gun:

The unique high-speed motor inside is used to drive the “gun head” to generate high-frequency vibration, which acts on the deep layer of the muscle to reduce local tissue tension, relieve pain and promote blood circulation.

Learn more about how to use it and the precautions when using it:

The fascia gun should be used along the muscle texture and fascia direction of the human body, and not just hit the sore points of the muscles. However, the head and neck, spine, and other parts with a large number of nerves and blood vessels cannot be used. It is best not to use more than 3 to 5 minutes for each part. The correct use of the fascia gun will not cause muscle swelling. If muscle swelling occurs, the muscle has been damaged due to improper use.

Then understand the actual function of the fascia gun. The specific functions are manifested in the following three points:

1. Helps exercise.

We use the fascia gun before exercising, which can quickly impact the muscle groups to be exercised, increasing the temperature and blood flow of the muscle groups, which helps to achieve a rapid warm-up effect.

Using the fascia gun between two sets of exercises can reactivate tired muscles and prepare them for the next set of exercises.

2. Helps to relax.

After we exercise, the muscles will tense, lactic acid will accumulate, and tissue hypoxia will be caused. In the end, we will feel muscle stiffness and discomfort, and this muscle stiffness is difficult to recover by ourselves.

The outer layer of human muscle is wrapped with a layer of fascia so that muscle fibers can contract in an orderly direction to achieve a better functional state. After excessive exercise, the muscle fascia will be expanded or squeezed, causing soreness and discomfort.

We use the fascia gun after exercise. According to the principle of trigger points, the fascia gun can impact the exercised muscle group for a long time to achieve the purpose of assisting in the metabolism of lactic acid and reducing muscle tension. It is similar to the stretching of ligaments, Muscle stretching, and auxiliary massage.

Therefore, if the fascia gun is used reasonably and correctly, the recovery time and efficiency after exercise will be improved, and it can also relieve muscle soreness after exercise.

3. Improve fasciitis.

The stable vibration frequency of the fascia gun can promote the recovery of muscles and surrounding soft tissues or eliminate fatigue, indirectly improve the repair of tissues, and at the same time relieve the pain symptoms of patients with fasciitis.

It is worth noting that the fascia guns on the market are at most relaxing, and will not have a weight loss effect, nor can they have a therapeutic function, so they are not a panacea.
