Boosting Recovery and Reducing Inflammation with Dynamic Compression Therapy
Dynamic compression reduces inflammation and fluid collection stored in your limbs after a heavy workout or hard day at the office. The compression therapy helps remove lactic acid and improves blood circulation and lymph drainage.
This is a therapeutic technique used to improve venous circulation. The device consists of an air pump connected to compartmentalized boots and mimics a blood pressure cuff. When activated it forces fluids like blood and lymph out of the pressurized area. It increases circulation, eliminates swelling and metabolic waste. With deflation, the veins will be replenished with blood.
In professional athletes, intermittent compression has been used to significantly reduced the occurrence and intensity of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), improve flexibility and to improve recovery.
