Recovery & Compression
If you have a pinpoint injury, such as shoulder pain, tendonitis, calf strains (any muscle for that matter), aches or tears, our Recovery and Compression system at Performance Rehab can help you mitigate the pain and speed up recovery to help you get back into action as quick as possible.
We all know that ice packs are a common treatment for acute muscle injuries and strain. Recovery & Compression takes that to the next level by adding in compression to help increase circulation and healing while reducing inflammation.
How does it work?
Performance Rehab utilizes dynamic, sequential compression, a concept based on decades of research into biomimicry, or the science of simulating the body’s natural biomechanics to enhance physiological benefits. By combining sequential compression with cold therapy. Each compression device was uniquely developed for a specific body part to direct swelling away while driving cold deep into the tissue. The combination of directional sequential compression and deep penetrating cold may help in reducing edema and pain while allowing better blood circulation in the treated area and reducing inflammation.
What are the benefits?
Dynamic compression dramatically enhances blood flow, improves lymphatic function, flushes out lactic acid, eliminates muscle soreness, and increases mobility – all of which help you recover faster and get back to your best.
For athletes, recovery and compression is an excellent recovery tool providing high efficacy cold therapy while driving metabolites such as lactic acid away from the treated muscle, increasing local circulation. The sequential compression and cold work together to remove lactic acid and drive the cold deep into the treated muscle or joint.
