Why we need to use a Fascial Gun after exercise?
Many people’s first reaction to muscle soreness after exercise is the accumulation of lactic acid, but in fact this is just an outdated misunderstanding. This kind of soreness is called DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness), which means delayed onset muscle soreness.
DOMS is not only accompanied by soreness, but may also cause decreased range of motion, joint stiffness, local swelling, weakened muscle strength, and even affect muscle growth. It is an outdated and wrong dogma to think that lactic acid causes muscle soreness.
In fact, DOMS is caused by minor trauma and inflammation of the muscles and surrounding connective tissue. Nociceptors in muscle tissue, which is a kind of free nerve endings, can feel chemical stimuli such as inflammation or disturbance of capillary microcirculation, and send pain signals to the brain.
The use of a fascia gun to massage the muscles, or use the vibration axis to relax, can promote the flow of body fluids, thereby helping the minimally invasive repair of the muscles, restoring the balance of the body tension system, and reducing the risk of sports injuries.
This is common knowledge in the American sports world, so the fascia gun is very popular in sports circles such as the NBA, and now it has become an artifact of office white-collar workers.
Classification of fascia gun
Fascia guns are divided into professional and mini models. The core performance difference lies in the difference in massage strength + depth. Professional fascia guns have greater strength and deeper massage depth.
The professional fascia gun is suitable for experienced sports users and users with relatively large muscles. The mini fascia gun is suitable for ordinary sports enthusiasts, especially female users.
The structure of the fascial gun
Brushed motor: easy to heat, poor safety, generally low life, and generally noisy, low cost
Brushless motor: small size, large power, long service life, and low noise.
First choice brushless motor
Non-brushless motors are not selected
Motor + chip + battery + transmission system + mold
Transmission system: The transmission system determines the service life, power, and stability of the fascia gun. It is mainly divided into single shaft, double shaft, and multi shaft. The material is divided into plastic material and metal material.
Multi-axis＞Metal double-axis＞Plastic double-axis＞Metal single-axis＞Plastic single-axis
How to Choose the Best Massage Gun?
Maximum torque: the performance of the motor can be seen through the parameter of maximum torque
The fascia gun with torque>104mN·m is preferred, and the larger the better
Deep massage, break down the accumulation of lactic acid, mainly depends on how deep the amplitude is. Amplitude depth is the most important indicator of the fascial gun
Stability: The motor, transmission system, and assembly process will all affect the stability, and the unstable fascia gun will greatly affect the experience
Massage head: Material selection of massage head: Silicone>EVA>Plastic,
Silicone material is easier to clean, wear-resistant and skin-friendly;
The plastic hard-shell massage head has no elasticity, and its skin-friendliness is relatively poor.
Shovel-shaped head: suitable for massaging the large flat muscles of the waist
Spherical head: suitable for massaging all major muscle groups of the body
Cone head: suitable for massaging acupoints, joints, meridians
Double claw head: Massage the shoulder and neck on the Achilles tendon of the spine
Metal head: suitable for massaging arms, thighs and calves
Vibration frequency: Vibration frequency is the number of hits per minute, displayed in rpm. The general vibration frequency of the fascia gun is 1500-3500rpm. The wider the frequency range, the better the adaptability
Weight: The weight of a professional fascia gun is about 800-1300g
The mini fascia gun weighs about 300-600g
Noise: little effect
Gear position: 3-5 optional gear positions are more reasonable

Human muscles are wrapped in bundles of fascia, and these bundles of muscles are connected to bones by soft tissues. People sitting for a long time or standing or exercising will cause muscle fibers to contract and tense for a long time and cause adhesions in the fascia. The adhesion sites are called nodes.
Just like when we wear clothes, when the clothes are too tight or the clothes on the inner layer are wrinkled, we will feel a sense of restraint or entanglement. The core of massage is to soothe the fascia, use external force to loosen the fascia node, so that the fascia becomes stretched and smooth, so that the muscles and body can be relaxed.
