Benefits of Compression Massage
LESSEN PAIN SENSITIVITY
Peristaltic pulse dynamic compression is a promising means of accelerating and enhancing recovery by reducing muscle tenderness from pressure stimuli.
INCREASE RANGE OF MOTION
Peristaltic pulse dynamic compression rapidly enhances acute range of motion with less discomfort and time.
PULSE COMPRESSION AS A TREATMENT FOR DOMS
A thirty minute treatment of Pulse compression increases bloodflow in the lower extremity, possibly making Pulse compression a viable option in the management of exercise induced muscle damage. (DOMS)
CLEAR METABOLITES PASSIVELY
Intermittent pneumatic compression significantly lowers blood lactate concentrations when compared to a passive recovery group.
DECREASE MUSCLE FATIGUE AFTER ACUTE EXERCISE
External pneumatic compression increases flexibility and reduces select skeletal muscle oxidative stress and proteolysis markers during recovery from heavy resistance exercise.
IMPROVE ENDOTHELIAL FUNCTION
A single bout of perstaltic pulse compression improves conduit artery endothelial function systematically and improves RH blood flow in the compressed limbs.
NORMATEC UPREGULATES PGC-1a AND eNOS
A sixty minute bout of whole leg, peristaltic pulse compression transiently upregulates PGC-1a mRNA, while also upregulating eNOS protein and Nox concentrations in biopsy samples.
GENE EXPRESSION IN HUMAN MUSCLE TISSUE
Peristaltic pulse compression appears to upregulate rps6 and downregulate Stat1, which may facilitate positive adaptive responses to exercise.
