We are excited to be able to offer our patients the benefits of sequential compression via Elevated Legs©, available at both our East side and West side offices. Keep reading to find how Elevated Legs can benefit you.
Increased blood flow helps to clear fatigue-causing metabolites and reduce inflammation.
What are the benefits of Sequential Compression?
The sequential intermittent compression provided by Elevated Legs works to increase blood flow and speed up your body’s natural process of removing that post-workout accumulation of metabolic waste and lactate. Athletes often experience muscles that feel less sore, fresher, looser and less fatigue after a session in the Legs.
During your training sessions, the stress that your muscles receive causes micro damage to the muscle fibers. This damage leads to inflammation of the muscles as well as the build-up of metabolic waste such as lactate, pyruvate, ammonia, bicarbonate and pH.
The resulting combination of soreness, fatigue and reduced muscle strength all add up to significantly limit your ability to exercise to your full potential and reap the most benefit from your next workout. This is why the ability to recover more quickly is so important.
Not Just for Athletes
They just feel so good!
