Whether you are training consistently and intensely for an upcoming pro day, game, or season, or after a long day of sitting at work or running to meetings, the body may benefit from a structured recovery program. RecoveryPump technology is supported by clinical studies geared towards muscle physiology and sport injury. Participating in Active Compression Therapy can help relieve the soreness associated with putting stress on a muscle, as well as aid in the performance preparation.
Managing micro trauma of the muscle and inflammation from the accumulation of lactic acid, creatinine and other metabolic waste is a large part of the modern day recovery process. Using the RecoveryPump system to assist with venous return and lymphatic system efficiency may help in the over recovery of the muscle since lymph nodes and blood vessels work together to flush waste from our cells naturally.
Flexing and relaxing the muscles of the body is an important part of the overall pumping action that our body needs to flush waste from intense training. This muscle pump action typically requires movement that can add up through the week and months as accumulative stress. With the help of RecoveryPump’s Active Compression Therapy, the mind and body can relax and even make time to eat, hydrate, and at times sleep to enhance the time spent in recovery.
Having the opportunity to plug in a system to use is not always an option. Both the RP and RPX systems offer similar features, but the RPX provides versatility of use when traveling or at locations where there is no access to an outlet. Having a RecoveryPump lounge with Anti-Gravity Chairs is an excellent way to showcase the RP system with timed recovery sessions.
The most used product in combination with either the RP or RPX pumps is the RecoveryBoots. Whether it is after a tough practice, game, conditioning session, or strength training, the boots are the go to option. 15 to 30 minutes at 70-80 mmHg is the typical setting that provides an enjoyable experience while freeing up time to catch up on emails, check social media, or even read a book.
Clients and athletes have been excited for the RecoveryCore since it provides a similar feel to the RecoveryBoots but targets from above the knee to just below the rib cage. The compression can soothe the muscles of the hips and low back while really applying pressure to the large muscle groups of the upper leg. 20-35 minutes at 80-90 mmHg has those that are in the RecoveryCore talking, catching up on their favorite show, or reading his/her scouting report for the upcoming game.
10-15 minutes per side at 60-70 mmHg makes for an efficient upper body opportunity with the RecoveryArm. Clients with shoulder, elbow, and wrist issues plus athletes who regularly are required to go through the throwing motion can add this option to their daily schedule without imposing on coaches meetings, time at study hall, or developing inside jokes with their teammates.
