Compression Therapy for Sports Recovery
Different recovery strategies from maximal exercise seem to induce different lactate utilization patterns without significantly affecting performance on one subsequent maximal exercise. It remains unclear however, how varying recovery modalities affects repeated maximal exercise.
IPC Sports Recovery Enhancement
Muscle fatigue is defined as failure to maintain the required or expected force. At least two mecha- nisms are involved in muscle fatigue. One is re- lated to intracellular acidosis, acting directly on the myofibrils by suppressing their contractile force.
IPC Effect on Stiffness, Soreness & Strength
The purpose was to determine if intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) affects muscle swelling, stiffness, and strength loss resulting from eccentric exercise-induced injury of the elbow flexors. We hypothesizedthat the compression would decrease swelling and stiffness.
