Faster Recovery

Faster Recovery – Increased blood flow helps to clear fatique  causing metabolites and reduce inflammation.

This ability to promote increased blood flow is what leads to faster recovery.

During your training sessions, the stress that your muscles receive causes micro damage to the muscle fibers. This damage leads to inflammation of the muscles as well as the build-up of  metabolic waste such as lactate, pyruvate, ammonia, bicarbonate and pH.

. The resulting combination of soreness, fatigue and reduced muscle strength all add up to significantly limit your ability to exercise to your full potential and reap the most benefit from your next workout. This is why the ability to recover more quickly is so important. ( http://www.archives-pmr.org/article/S0003-9993(95)80529-X/abstract?cc=y

Including Elevated Legs into your daily recovery routine can help you to accelerate the recovery process that your body’s lymphatic and vascular systems do naturally over a longer period of time. (Link to Science) By promoting increased blood flow, pneumatic compression helps your body remove the accumulation of waste in your muscles more quickly and efficiently than your body can normally. Your muscles heal and can recover faster.
