These tools will accelerate the recovery process after intense training and/or help facilitate soft tissue healing and pain management for injured or adaptive athletes.
What is a soft tissue injury?
Soft tissue injuries happen when the muscles in our body were overused or when trauma occurs. This happen to most people who tend to overworked their bodies. Most soft tissue injuries are the result of unexpected movements like jumping suddenly while rolling over your ankle. Another example is when you are running in the field for almost 2 hours and you still wanted to go on. Then it is possible to cause trauma or a strain.
When soft tissue is damaged, there is usually immediate pain most of the time with swelling. There are also cases wherein we experience pain but without the swelling, it only becomes visible after how many hours. Stiffness is also very common as a result of the trauma. These are the injuries we often see in our clinic.
How are we going to recover from this injury?
