How compression clothing can help with post-operative pain?

Minor Injuries, and niggles in sports are inevitable. When putting your body through the stress of training and competing you are sure to feel the pinch at times. However, for an unlucky proportion of athletes, major injuries can ruin months and years of preparation, and even put an end to careers. 

There is a universal six week minimum recovery time for injuries which require an operation, with some injuries such as a torn ACL’s needing at least a year of recovery. These periods of recovery can be full of anxiety and stress, as often you feel like you are ready to dive back in, but your body isn’t quite on the same page. Recoverite’s revolutionary range of recovery products will keep you on track and ensure your recovery time is as short as possible, helping you and your body get in sync, and back out there in no time at all. 

How do we do it?

ICE 

The go-to for any injury situation. Postoperative ice therapy is always recommended by medical professionals, but can also be such a hassle. Buying or making ice cubes, just for them to slip around, never be the right temperature, and melt in no time at all; leaving you lying in a cold puddle.

With recoverite’s, Clayflex ice packs you can reach the optimal skin temperature of under 13 degrees celsius whilst keeping the ice exactly where you need it and not having to worry about it melting. 

Recoverite is the easiest way to perform ice therapy, decreasing pain throughout the duration of your injury, decreasing postoperative swelling and inflammation, reducing internal bleeding of soft tissue and increasing the rate of muscular repair. With these benefits from Recoverite’s ice therapy not only will you be back up and going quicker, but you will also come back stronger. 

COMPRESSION 

One of the most simple and effective recovery techniques available.
