NormaTec Compression Boots
Athletes and trainers alike know that a day of strenuous, rewarding exercise can result in muscle pain and heavy legs that can sabotage workout efforts for days to come. Compression Therapy does more than just relieve the symptoms of stress to the muscular system; it tackles the causes of muscle soreness, and its accompanying impact on performance, right at the source. Recovery is made easier and athletes can push their limits to improve their performance without the heavy legs.
Physiology behind Muscle Soreness
The muscle pain, tenderness and fatigue that you feel after high levels of exercise is primarily due to muscle cell micro damage and inflammation, which leads to the accumulation of lactic acid, creatine and other metabolic waste the body cannot clear completely during exercise or normal cool down.
Simply put, the increasing accumulation of waste and water in the muscle after exercise causes a decrease in performance and an increase of muscle fatigue. These elements must be removed via the venous and lymphatic system to efficiently recover the muscle.
Compression Expedites Post-Workout Recovery
Although the human body naturally excises waste that causes soreness and fatigue, this takes time. Compression boots deliver serious athletes an aggressive but very natural alternative to passive recovery that far exceeds the results achieved from many traditional modes of recovery. Our system simulates localized “active recovery” in a passive manner because the therapy is conducted at rest.
Speed up your body’s own natural means of recovery and quickly climb back to your peak performance levels with technology that addresses muscle pain at its source.
