Why Fast Recovery from Injuries is Crucial (and How Incrediwear Can Help)
Getting injured is a nightmare for many of us. Whether you’re a professional athlete, an amateur sports enthusiast, or just keen to stay fit and active for the sake of your health, an injury can be an inconvenience at best, and seriously debilitating at worst.
Fast recovery from injuries is crucial if you want to minimize their impact. Fortunately, Incrediwear’s line of recovery wear is here to help you at every stage of your journey to healing. Read on to learn why the speed of your recovery matters and how our products can help you get there.
Minimize your loss of performance
Whether you run marathons, lift weights, or play in a sports team, you will understand the importance of training consistently. Having a break from your routine for too long can cause major setbacks in your performance. You lose muscle strength, your cardiovascular system weakens, and your overall wellbeing takes a hit.
According to Healthline, cardiovascular fitness can drop in just a few days and muscle strength starts to be lost after three to four weeks away from regular training. If you have to take a period of time off to recover from an injury, you will not find yourself completely back at square one, but you may notice a significant dip in your performance.
Using Incrediwear recovery wear can help to speed up your healing time, allowing you to get back out there more quickly and minimize the losses you suffer in your performance. And once you are training again, using our supportive garments during and after your workouts can promote faster recovery from exercise, reduce delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), and give your performance a natural boost through improved blood flow.
Get your quality of life back
Being active and mobile is a huge quality of life issue for many people. When you are suffering from an injury, you may not be able to do many of the things you love to do, whether that’s taking part in sports, playing with your children, or doing an active job.
When they get injured, many people find themselves feeling frustrated, angry, bored, or helpless. They may also feel as though they are relying too much on others, such as family members or friends, to take care of them. Fast recovery from injuries can allow you to regain your independence and keep doing all the things you love.
By using recovery wear to assist in your healing, you can get that quality of life back more quickly. Our non-compression garments work with your body’s internal healing mechanisms, gently promoting recovery and helping you to get your quality of life back on track, free from pain and the long-term repercussions of a serious injury.
Protect your mental health
Sustaining an injury or living with a pain condition does not only have an impact on physical health. It can also be seriously detrimental to mental wellbeing. According to Practical Pain Management, pain can exacerbate mental health struggles such as anxiety, depression, and panic disorders. These, in turn, can make the physical pain worse. In other words, it’s a vicious cycle.
Therefore, fast recovery from injuries is essential if you want to protect your mental health. Similarly, keeping your pain to a minimum while you’re recovering can help to keep your spirits up. Incrediwear garments can accelerate healing and minimize your pain while your body recovers, minimizing the detrimental impact of your injury on your mental health.
Avoid injuries in future
A strong, healthy body that recovers quickly from injuries is less likely to get injured again in the future. By taking good care of yourself and doing all you can to speed up recovery and boost your body’s natural healing processes, you help you protect yourself against injuries in the future.
Incrediwear recovery wear stimulates the tissue in the affected area using two key elements, Carbon and Germanium. These increase blood flow and the flow of lymphatic fluid, both of which are vital parts of the recovery process. This will not only help you recover more quickly, but also help you to avoid succumbing to the same type of injury again, protecting you in the long term.
How to use recovery wear to heal from injuries faster
There are two critical parts to using recovery wear for fast recovery from injuries: choosing the right garments, and using them consistently.
Incrediwear’s recovery wear garments are conveniently categorized by sport or activity, body part, or injury type. So no matter what your circumstances or what type of injury you’re suffering from, you will easily be able to find the right piece for you. If you are not sure what to choose, you can always contact us and a member of our friendly, experienced team will be happy to help you find the perfect item for your needs.
Once you get your recovery wear, it is essential to use it consistently. For most people, this will mean wearing it every day while you are recovering, and then using it during and after exercise once you begin training again.
Incrediwear recovery wear is lightweight and designed to fit comfortably under your day to day clothing, wick moisture, and support you without restricting your movement. This means you can use it every day to assist your recovery, without it getting in the way of any of your activities. It is comfortable and safe to wear, and should not cause or exacerbate any pain.
There are other general steps you can also take to relieve pain and accelerate your recovery from injury. Get plenty of sleep, eat a healthy diet, and see a doctor or physiotherapist if appropriate. You might find that some gentle stretching or strengthening exercises help, but do not try to do too much exercise, too soon, or you could make the injury worse. Combine these tried and tested strategies with consistent use of non-compressive recovery wear, and you will be back on your feet in no time.
