Recovery is such an important aspect of health & wellness these days and it seems everyone is always looking for the latest and greatest cutting edge trend in order to recover quicker and stay fresher, longer. At Elevation Hydration, we specialize in helping you recover from all sorts of things whether it is a migraine, jet lag, or a cold among other things. Since moving into our new location however, we wanted to up the recovery game for you on another level that didn’t involve just hydration or a quick injection. After evaluating other modalities that go hand in hand with our philosophy on recovery and performance, we landed on the Speed Hound ProPerformance Recovery Boots System.

What are they you ask? Speed Hound Recovery Boots are a form of pneumatic compression designed to help speed recovery after strenuous exercise or athletic events by improving circulation and reducing muscle soreness.  The leg attachments slide on like boots then fill up with air, compressing the limb distally to proximally (feet to hips), thereby facilitating the return of metabolites, lactic acid and inflammation back into the circulatory system.  This results in increased mobility, decreased pain and soreness and ultimately improved function.

Muscle soreness after exercise is a result of several different factors; the breakdown of muscle tissue, released metabolites (like lactic acid), and inflammation. When not addressed, these byproducts remain in the legs, which in turn cause the feeling of stiffness and soreness. Speed Hound Recovery Boots are designed to address this issue by draining the legs through a rhythmic massage.  Similar to a massage, each segment of the recovery boots will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each of the four chambers of the recovery boots as the compression pattern works its way up your limb, effectively mimicking the muscular contractions of the legs to move these pain-causing fluids and metabolites out of the tissue.  Treatments of just 15 minutes can provide substantial results, although our recovery boots allow for 10, 20 or 30 minute sessions so you can choose what’s right for you.

The Speed Hound ProPerformance Recovery System also allows for on the fly pressure & zone adjustability so you’re always in control of the intensity of the massage as well as what areas are being treated. If you’re looking for the next step in your training & recovery regimen, make sure you come try out the new Speed Hound Recovery Boots.
