Recovery is one of the most vital things to do to keep your body in top form. Whether you're recovering from an injury or just from a marathon workout session, it's key that you have the right surface under you, supporting you in all the right places. Our range of beds and mattresses do exactly that: provide comfort and support when you're aching all over.
Cryotherapty (more commonly known as icing) is a great way to aid recovery. Because cryotherapy reduces swelling and inflammation by constricting blood vessels, it helps to reduce the soreness of muscles after workouts and to reduce pain caused by injury. This makes recovery much easier and much less painful, giving you the confidence to continue your training.
Cushioning painful parts of your body after an injury or hard workout helps to support the muscles and joints, reducing pain and making it easier for them to heal so that you can get off the bench and back on the field. Our range of cushions and supports for rest and recovery are designed to provide the support you need to get past your injury.
Nutrition is a massive part of keeping your body in shape. Making sure that you're getting the right amount of essential nutrients keeps your body powered and engaged so you can keep going for longer. It also keeps the rest of your body in check, ensuring you don't get any unwanted illnesses stopping you from training because your body's too weak.
Heat therapy is a great way to help with long term injuries. The warmth from heat therapy helps to expand blood vessels, helping the blood to get more oxygen and nutrients to the damaged joints, muscles and tendons. This both helps to reduce the pain they're causing and helps them to heal, and it can even help to increase your range of motion, making you more flexible and nimble.
Ice baths are a classic method of delivering cryotherapy after a hard workout. Because they cool the entirety of the body, ice baths deliver cold therapy to all affected muscles and tendons at once, delivering immediate cold therapy and reducing inflammation and pain almost immediately.
Ice packs are a fantastic way to deliver targeted cold therapy to a specific area of your body, ideal for a sprain or strained muscle. Because the cold reduces blood flow in the targeted area, it reduces the inflammation and pain. It's most effective immediately after you get the injury, so it's always better to be prepared.
Massaging problem areas of your body helps to reduce knots in muscle, making them more flexible and pliable. This makes massage a great solution for reducing muscle aches and pains, but you needn't go to an expensive massage parlor. Our range of massage equipment has been designed to enable you to massage your body on your own and give yourself much-needed pain reduction.
If you're working to deliver a great sports massage, it's important that you have the right oils and lotions available to you. Being able to effortlessly move your hands over skin to properly work out muscle knots while sealing in the skin's moisture, making it more malliable and easier to massage are vital to delivering a great massage.
When out and about, be it on the pitch or out in the great outdoors, it's vital that you can get the care and medical attention you need in case of a medical emergency. These medical bags have been designed to carry a range of quick-response medical equipment such as straps, cooling sprays and gels to help you get past your injury and back into the game as soon as possible.
Nutrition supplements are a great way to ensure that you get all the important vitamins and minerals your body needs to work at its full capacity. What extra nutrition you need depends on what kind of exercise you do, and we have a wide range of nutritional supplements to meet the need of any athlete.
Rollers may sound like the thing your grandma puts in her hair to get that killer perm, but they're also an important part of any exercise kit. They come in a wide variety of forms, from soft foam to firm plastic, to do a variety of different things for you. They can help reduce muscle pain, increase flexibility and can even help with aching feet.
Kinesiology taping is a popular and effective strapping method and can work wonders for a wide variety of different injures, and even for general muscle pain. Conditions like tennis elbow, Achilles tendonitis and even turf toe can massively benefit from strapping and taping. Kinesiology tape works because it's almost exactly as elastic as human skin, which means there's no binding or constriction of movement.
TENS machines deliver short, targeted electrical signals through electrodes attached to your skin. While this might seem a little bit like the work of Dr. Frankenstein, the electrical impulses actually help to directly reduce the pain signals going to your brain. This enables your muscles to relax, and because TENS machines are so small, you can use them when you're out and about, wherever you are.
Just as its important to warm up before exercise, it's also important to warm down afterwards. Warming down allows your body to return back to it's natural state, reducing your heart rate, preventing blood pooling in veins and increasing the rate at which lactic acid leaves your muscles. Doing a proper warm down using the right equipment can even help speed up recovery.
