Pneumatic Compression for Recovery

You worked out. Hard. You feel like an Olympic athlete. Then a day or two goes by; tension, soreness and stiffness set in and have you feeling more like a spectator. Your muscles have a dull ache, often combined with tenderness and rigidity. It’s what fitness buffs these days call D.O.M.S., which stands for Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. D.O.M.S. is caused by intense workouts that result in buildup of lactic acid in the muscles.

When we are working out and our body cannot produce enough oxygen to feed all of the muscles, it produces lactic acid to give the body the energy it needs to get through. D.O.M.S. is the result of lactic acid build up, as the body has no way of releasing the excess once it is produced. Enter Pneumatic Compression and instant relief.

Pneumatic Compression is ideal for runners, cyclists, Cross Fitters and really anyone with aches, pains and tension in their legs. Just slip on our Air Relax Pneumatic Compression sleeves, sit back and relax for 15 minutes and feel the relief happening. The sleeves are broken into segments in which air fills and exits in specific patterns placing alternative tension and relaxation on the muscles. The massage like treatment increases blood flow to the area flushing out excess lactic acid in order to increase recovery, flexibility, and reduce swelling, pain and stiffness. 

Pneumatic Compression is available at Revivify 7 days a week for only $20!
