The role of Massage Gun

2021-10-07

Fasciitis
Massage gun can help improve the pain symptoms of patients with fasciitis, and the vibration frequency is stable, which can promote the recovery of muscles and soft tissues. The relevant person in charge of the Rehabilitation Treatment Committee of the Chinese Society of Rehabilitation Medicine stated that vibration can promote the recovery of muscles and surrounding soft tissues or eliminate fatigue, which indirectly affects the repair of tissues. In other words, the Massage gun can help improve the pain symptoms of patients with fasciitis, and the vibration frequency is stable, which can promote the recovery of muscles and soft tissues.
Exercise relaxation
After exercise, muscle tension, lactic acid accumulation, hypoxia, especially after excessive exercise, the muscles are very stiff and it is difficult to recover on their own. The outer layer of human muscles will be wrapped by 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 swollen or squeezed, causing soreness and discomfort. Massage gun uses external physical methods to solve muscle tension and other problems, similar to the effects of ligament stretching, muscle stretching, and auxiliary manual massage after professional athletes have finished training. There is still a difference between using and not using it. With the help of the Massage gun, the time and efficiency of recovery after exercise will be improved. Reasonable and correct use of the Massage gun can indeed help relieve muscle soreness after exercise.
During exercise, the use of the Massage gun can be divided into three parts, namely warm-up before exercise, activation during exercise, and recovery after exercise.
Before exercise, use the Massage gun to quickly impact the muscles you want to exercise, so that the temperature and blood flow of the muscles increase, which helps to achieve a quick warm-up effect.
Use the Massage gun in the interval between the two exercises to reactivate the tired muscles and prepare for the next set of exercises.
 Massage gun vibration has high and low frequency, and the high frequency plays a role more shallowly. If it is a deep muscle, use more low frequency, the low frequency impact will be slower and longer lasting. The application of high frequency is more of friction, which generates heat through friction, which is more suitable for relieving muscle stiffness.

After exercise, use the Massage gun, according to the principle of trigger point, to hit the muscles after training for a long time to help metabolize lactic acid and reduce muscle tension. For example, after doing push-ups, use the Massage gun to hit the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor muscles for more than two minutes.
