Compression therapy is a popular treatment method for muscle and soft tissue injuries. According to scientific evidence, external compression via intermittent pneumatic compression can reduce oedema, enhance scar tissue alignment and mobility, increase proprioception in an injured joint, and reduce the risk of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
The boots minimize swelling by exerting compression on the area. This is especially useful after an injury because it can assist in minimizing swelling and pain.
With increasingly demanding training schedules, injuries can arise for various reasons, including poor technique, a lack of recovery, and overtraining. Strenuous physical activity can cause muscle tissue damage and injury, resulting in soreness, a restricted range of motion, oedema, pain, and impaired functional capacity. Athletes frequently suffer from injuries such as Achilles tendinopathy, shin splints, and a runner's knee.
Because injured tissue has a high oxygen demand, an oxygen-rich blood supply is critical for cell repair and proliferation. Active compression promotes oxygenation by boosting blood flow; oxygen is given to an injured location while lowering inflammation and muscle microtrauma. Fatigue is lessened, and recovery time is shortened.
Recovery boots actively pump away excess fluid that accumulates around an injury, lowering swelling and extending the range of motion of an injured joint. In addition, lymphatic drainage, which transports cellular waste products away from the damaged area, is improved by pneumatic compression.
