Decompression, weight loss can also cure disease? Is the net red fascia gun so magical?

Fascial gun has recently become a net red product. Some people say that this thing is the “black technology” of the fitness circle, while others regard it as a massage artifact of “where to beat hard”. It can not only relax and decompress, but also has been labeled with the “magic effect” label of “sports talent standard” and “essential for weight loss and beautiful legs”. Is the fascial gun really so magical? < p > < p > ZHU Guangquan: what I hold in my hand is similar to the electric drill used for decoration, which is the net red product that we are discussing warmly: fascia gun. There are many fascia guns of different brands on the market now. For example, there are two models in front of me, both of which are of regular size. The price of these two models is about a few hundred yuan, and there are many plugs in front of me. It is still some weight in my hand, about 1kg. < p > < p > ZHU Guangquan: so, how hot is the fascial gun now? Let’s look at this chart first. This is the search index trend chart of a platform with “fascia gun” as the keyword. We can see that before April and may of 2019, the search volume of fascial gun was almost zero. However, in June and July of 2019, the search enthusiasm of netizens was on the rise, and the search volume with “fascial gun” as the key word and peripheral derived words increased sharply, and this heat has been maintained until 2020. During the period from March to April this year, the search index reached a small peak of 3943, and then to July this year, the search index also reached 3311, maintaining a high level. Since then, the search fever with “fascial gun” as the keyword has been maintained in a fixed range. < p > < p > ZHU Guangquan: in addition to the search index, it is absolutely indispensable in the list of hot sales. According to the transaction records of many e-commerce platforms, some famous brands often sell more than 100000 products. If you look at those popular video platforms, there are a lot of evaluation programs for fascial guns. Under the strong recommendation of businesses, fascial guns seem to be omnipotent. And the hundreds of thousands of likes of videos also show that a large number of people are very interested in fascial guns, and many users watching live broadcast order decisively to buy them. < / P > < p > the fascial gun is “rightfully red”, what is the effect? The first is to “relax muscles and relieve fatigue”; the second is to “relieve cervical vertebra and treat diseases”; the third is to “lose weight and shape and burn fat”. With the influx of a large number of manufacturers into this market, fascial gun has been packaged as a “massage, treatment, shaping artifact” positioning is also rapidly established. Is the fascial gun really so magical? < / P > < p > is a fascia gun. First of all, we should know what fascia is. In short, fascia is the white membrane that envelops the human muscles, covering the whole body, constraining the muscles to function in an orderly direction. But persistent fatigue and tension can lead to fascial spasm, which is often referred to as fasciitis. The patient is usually very painful, and the fascia gun can help to improve the symptoms. Lou Zhikun, director of the Department of bone and joint rehabilitation, Institute of sports medicine, General Administration of sport of the people’s Republic of China, member of the “source news” expert database of the Chinese Association for science and technology, Lou Zhikun, director of the Department of bone and joint rehabilitation, Institute of sports medicine, General Administration of sport of the people’s Republic of China: the amplitude of different frequencies is generally about 1-1.6cm, and its upward and downward movement amplitude is 1cm, and then the power is transmitted downward. It’s usually at the level of muscle, which is controlled by our hands. Chen Wenhua, member of “source news” expert database of Chinese Association for science and technology, chairman of rehabilitation treatment Committee of China Rehabilitation Medical Association: through this vibration, we can promote the recovery of muscles and surrounding soft tissues, or eliminate fatigue, which indirectly affects some repair of our tissues. Lou Zhikun, director of the Department of bone and joint rehabilitation, Institute of sports medicine, General Administration of sport of the people’s Republic of China: massage can relax our muscles and fascia tissue, which is one of our regular choices. < / P > < p > as experts have said, fascial gun can help improve the pain symptoms of patients with fasciitis, and the vibration frequency is stable, which can promote the recovery of muscle and soft tissue. That is to say, the first label “relax muscles and relieve fatigue” is tenable. Fascial gun has a certain effect in this respect. Can the second label “relieve cervical vertebra and cure diseases” be done by fascial gun? < / P > < p > the cervical spine is a place where many important blood vessels, nerves and spinal cord gather in the human body, and the bone and joint structures of this part are closely arranged, and the muscles are weak, so it is difficult to recover once injured. In the experiment, experts repeatedly stressed that the use of fascial gun massage cervical spine, non professionals, is likely to “sword off the edge.”. Lou Zhikun, director of the Department of bone and joint rehabilitation, Institute of sports medicine, General Administration of sport of the people’s Republic of China, member of the “source news” expert database of the Chinese Association for science and technology, Lou Zhikun, director of the Department of bone and joint rehabilitation, Institute of sports medicine, General Administration of sport of the people’s Republic of China: there is a bone in the middle of the spine, which we call spinous process. When doing relaxation or treatment in this respect, we must avoid this part. So I usually choose to use double plug, and relax on both sides of spinous process. Some people have scoliosis, its own vertebral body or surrounding tissue lesions, then we through the percussion or hammering, it may also induce its disease or aggravate its damage. According to experts, there are more carotid sinuses on both sides of the human neck, commonly known as “dead spots”, where there are baroreceptor. If use fascia gun high frequency vibration to hit massage, maintain frequency stability is particularly important. In the experiment, experts also showed the serious consequences when the frequency of fascial gun was unbalanced. Member of “source news” expert database of China Association for science and technology, director of Department of bone and joint rehabilitation, Institute of sports medicine, General Administration of sport of the people’s Republic of China Lou Zhikun: it’s the most lethal time for human body, that is, my person and operator are in a stable position, but its frequency and amplitude have changed, and the output frequency is unstable. It’s just like hammering with a hammer. It’s easier to damage if you hammer deeper than you. Chen Wenhua, member of the expert database of “source news” of the Chinese Association for science and technology, chairman of the rehabilitation treatment special committee of the Chinese Association of rehabilitation medicine, Chen Wenhua: when some doctors are not proficient in the technique, if they use the technique too heavily, the patient will suddenly suffer from a drop in blood pressure and faint. Don’t hit the cervical spine directly. Doctors can’t do it. Don’t talk about the common people. < / P > < p > some muscles and veins of the cervical spine are scattered and complex. Once the manipulation is deviated, it may cause irreversible consequences. It seems that the second label “relieve cervical vertebra, treat disease”, this point fascia gun is unable to do, and there is great danger, we must not try at will. Continue to verify the third label, can the fascia gun really “lose weight, shape and burn fat”? Next, let’s follow the experts to talk about the experimental data. < / P > < p > can high frequency vibration hammering achieve weight loss and shape building? Experts designed two groups of simple control experiments. In the experiment, the circumference of both legs of two volunteers was measured. After that, the first volunteer did aerobic exercise for half an hour and then massaged his right leg with a fascia gun for 3 minutes. The second volunteer did not do any exercise. After the same hour, the right leg was massaged with a fascia gun for 3 minutes. Lou Zhikun, director of the Department of bone and joint rehabilitation, Institute of sports medicine, General Administration of sport of the people’s Republic of China, member of the “source news” expert database of the Chinese Association for science and technology, said: there was no change in the circumference and the expected weight loss effect was not achieved. We need to further verify it, or have further scientific research data to support it. Chen Wenhua, member of “source news” expert database of Chinese Association for science and technology, chairman of rehabilitation treatment special committee of Chinese Rehabilitation Medical Association: it is impossible to lose weight through its vibration. Fascial gun weight loss, there are a lot of related online meat throwing machine, what vibrator, are similar, including massage, are not able to lose weight. In terms of kinematics and metabolic mechanism, there is no basis. Lou Zhikun, director of the Department of bone and joint rehabilitation, Institute of sports medicine, General Administration of sport of the people’s Republic of China, is a member of the “source news” expert database of the Chinese Association for science and technology. < / P > < p > through our reporter’s investigation and comparative experiments, it has been concluded that fascia gun can properly massage and relax the large muscles of the human body, that is, the place with more meat and thicker meat. However, it should not be trusted for the treatment of cervical spondylosis. As for weight loss and shape building, it is a pure commercial gimmick. < / P > < p > finally, I would like to give you a wake-up call. Even if it is to massage muscles, experts also suggest that it should not be used in the elbow, knee and other bone protruding parts, as well as the cervical spine and other places where blood vessels and nerves are dense; the elderly, children, pregnant women and other specific groups should avoid using it. At the same time, the use of fascial gun to relax muscles should not be too long, a part of the appropriate 3 to 5 minutes, in addition, special groups or suggest that you use strictly under the guidance of doctors. You can play with mobile phones during pregnancy, but these four methods of “hurting your fetus” are not advisable. Be careful of the damage to Taibao
