  The three functions of the fascia gun

  1. Use the muscle massage gun before exercise to quickly impact the muscle groups you want to exercise, so that the temperature of the muscle groups and blood flow increases, helping to achieve a rapid warm-up effect.

  2. In the interval between two sets of exercise to use the fascia gun to let the fatigue of the muscle is activated again, ready for the next set of exercise.

  3. Use the fascia gun after exercise to shock the exercised muscle groups according to the principle of agonizing point, to help metabolize lactic acid and reduce muscle tension.

  The above use is based on a certain understanding of human anatomy, therapeutics and other people to use correctly to have the effect. If the operation is improper, not only to muscle, fascia tissue repair is not much effect, but may cause personal damage, because the mechanical vibration of the fascial gun in the nerve, blood vessels shallow body surface location, it is likely to cause serious injury.

  Three “no-go areas” should not be used

  1. Upper limb, lower limb bone prominence

  Outside of the knee joint, there is a projection at the upper end of the calf, called the fibular head, which is surrounded by the common peroneal nerve, very superficial, it will appear if the foot is injured, toes can not be dorsal extension, foot sensory disorders, etc., the fascia gun can not touch around the fibular head. In front of the knee joint is the prominence of the tibial tuberosity, which also cannot be hit with the fascia gun.

  The inner side of the elbow joint is where the ulnar nerve sulcus passes through, and sometimes the forearm can go numb when touched here. Because the ulnar nerve is very superficial here, it is also not to be touched with the fascia gun. The anterolateral aspect of the shoulder joint, anatomically called the greater tuberosity, is where the rotator cuff is attached and should not be touched with a fascial gun.

  2. Around the neck

  There are many nerves and blood vessels passing through the lateral and anterior side of the neck, and there are nerve reflex receptors, which are very sensitive and fragile, so it is very risky to use a fascial gun in these places.

  3. Around the clavicle, axilla, upper arm and popliteal fossa

  These places are full of brachial plexus nerve and its branches, supraclavicular artery, brachial artery and other important nerves, blood vessels, popliteal fossa is the fossa behind the knee joint, which has popliteal artery, nerves, etc., and the location is more superficial, once the consequences of injury are very serious, so these locations can not be directly hit with the muscle massager.

  Generally, there are two parts of the back muscles that we relax, one is our latissimus dorsi muscle, and the other is the firm spine muscle.

  For people who have been hunching over the back for a long time, the spinal muscles will be more tense, so the use of the back massager will have a certain relaxation of the tense spinal muscles, just like we stretch. But it is difficult to stretch to really loosen the whole deep spinal muscles, so it is time to use the fascia gun.

  As mentioned above, a fascia gun can be used to loosen the firm spinal muscles. For the latissimus dorsi muscle, it is a very wide part in the whole back position, and as such a large muscle group, it usually only works for some of our rib pulling movements, such as when pulling distal objects towards the body, which is usually dominated by the latissimus dorsi muscle.

  Anyway, the focus will be on giving you a relaxing massage on these two muscles using a fascial gun.

  Myofascial gun massage on the erector spinae muscle

  When relaxing the back with the fascia gun, let’s first understand what is the erector spinae muscle. Many people may not be familiar with the erector spinae muscle, but the loin muscle that you see every day is actually the erector spinae muscle. So the two sides of the spine are the areas that need to be loosened.

  When releasing the erector spinae muscle, the head of the fascial gun needs to be replaced with a U-shaped head that perfectly avoids the spinal ramus and acts on the muscles on both sides of the spine. The erector spinae muscle grows from the back of the pelvis below and continues along the spine to the back of the head.

  We focus on loosening the back vertical spinal muscles from the thoracic region to the lumbar region. Turn on the fascial gun with U-shaped massage head to second gear amplitude, first slide your hand down the spine to find the force point of the fascial gun, followed by the massage.

  Vertical spine muscle massage time is generally controlled at about 3 minutes per group.

  Myofascial gun massage of the latissimus dorsi muscle

  The above is the relaxation of the erector spinae muscle by the fascial gun, and the following is how the latissimus dorsi muscle should be handled. The latissimus dorsi muscle is located on the lateral side of the back. The latissimus dorsi muscle grows from the thoracic lumbar vertebrae to the back of the pelvis, and the muscle fibers follow the side direction of the body until the front of the shoulder joint, and the latissimus dorsi muscle is the largest fan-shaped area of the human body.

  Since most people’s latissimus dorsi is relatively thin and touches the rib cage directly through the muscle, when combing the latissimus dorsi with a fascial gun, you should not choose an excessively strong amplitude and sharp massage head, so choose a relatively flexible massage head.

  To loosen the latissimus dorsi, we start with the thoracic vertebrae and gradually work our way to the lateral shoulder joints. Then start from the head, only this time the starting point is moved down a little. Because the entire area of the latissimus dorsi is large, the entire muscle fiber needs to be combed evenly.

  If there are too many painful points while combing and massaging the latissimus dorsi, you can stay for about 30 seconds to massage the painful area.

  Well, this is the correct way to massage the erector spinae and latissimus dorsi muscles of the back by using a fascial gun and different tips of the massage gun.
