The stimulation units feature various programs so you can tailor your training program to suit your exact needs, whether that be endurance, strength, recovery, maintenance or performance.
Using a cold tub or ice bath significantly reduces injury recovery times, helps remove lactic acid, reduces swelling, and normalizes adrenaline production so the body can recover fast from intensive workouts and competitions. Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) typically peaks 24-72 hours after intensive exercise, but the cold water therapy reduces DOMS pain by reducing muscle inflammation and spasm that cause it.
The NormaTec compression boots provide a dynamic, patented, pulsing action that effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs, hips and arms. It greatly enhances the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout to help you recover quicker.
Micro-current electical stimulation sends small amounts of electrical current to the cells which promotes the production of ATP (the cell's energy molecule) and protein, as well as assists in the absorption of nutrients and the elimination of wastes. The Low Level Laser Therapy (aka cold laser) penetrates tissue where it is absorbed by cells and effectively stimulates healing and pain relief.
The use of “cryotherapy” in acute sports injuries, rehabilitation, and recovery is a generally accepted treatment method among athletes, and is proving to be a necessary part of serious athletic training programs. Cold compression therapy constricts the blood vessels and slows down the metabolism of the cells which aids in decreasing inflammation therefore improving recovery times.
Utilizing moist hot packs have the therapeutic effect of increasing the pliability of soft tissue
The use of heat decreases stiffness in the joints, reduces pain, and relieves muscle spasms. Heat therapy increases blood flow to an area to help provide proteins, nutrients, and oxygen for better healing.
The recovery room will be supplied with the latest therapeutic tools for self – mobilization, balance training, flexibililty and strength.
Tools include: TP Rollers, TheraCanes, Foam Rollers, The Stick, balance boards, BOSU trainers, TheraBalls, and Dyna Discs to help find that perfect balance of stability and mobility to optimize performance and reduce injury.
