Pneumatic Compression Recovery Therapy Glendale AZ
What is Compression Therapy?
Pneumatic compression therapy has been around in some shape or form for hundreds of years. However, in the sports medicine world it has gained popularity more recently. Wall 2 Wall Sports & Rehab has invested in state-of-the-art pneumatic compression therapy system to allow our athletes and active adults to recover and feel better faster and allow them to attack their next workout with more intensity.
The primary function of these compression sleeves is to activate the lymphatic system, which helps to eliminate waste materials, irritation, and edema while promoting healthy blood flow back into the area. Current research shows that circulation in the legs is improved by wearing these boots after exercise.
Compression treatment works by boosting blood flow to portions of the body, encouraging your body to supply more oxygen and nutrients to those areas, allowing you to recover faster, feel better, and perform better.
Who can benefit?
Almost all athletes can benefit from compression recovery therapy, this includes your traditional Football, Basketball, Baseball and soccer players or your more untraditional pickleballers, golfers, crossfitters and triathletes etc.
Another group of individuals that benefit are active adults who like to bike, hike or are on their feet daily for work responsibilities. When your occupation requires you to stand all day, such as nurses, doctors, chiropractors, construction workers, wedding photographers/videographers, and others, gravity promotes poor circulation in your legs, our compression system will help to return this fluid to your system and flush the broken-down toxins out of the lower extremities.
