Compression Boot Theraphy: recovery can be speeded by increasing blood flow. Compression therapy is a type of physical therapy that gently squeezes your legs to improve circulation which gets oxygen-rich blood flowing to your muscles to aid in recovery. You can use compression boots every day as often as two times a day for up to 30 minutes. You get the most benefit using them for at least 10 minutes. Compression therapy is good for: * Warming up before exercise. * Speeding recovery after exercise.
NOTE: The following is indicated by some studies and more studies are needed to definitively prove these benefits. Compression therapy may also be good for:
* Injuries such as plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, knee pain, and arthritis pain, sore hips, and lower back pain.
