Ultimate Guide to
It’s easy to take our health for granted. For most of us, our bodies serve to just simply get us where we need to go and we don’t give them much thought. We eat, we sleep, we know that we’re supposed to work out and drink water, etc. But we don’t always know the best ways for us to take care of ourselves.
The older we get, however, the more important it is to pay attention to our bodies. It’s vital that we give our bodies the utmost care they deserve, and that includes our legs. Enter compression therapy.
But what exactly is compression therapy? You may have heard about wearing compression socks during a long flight, or if you’re plugged into the health and wellness world, compression therapy may have been bounced around as something to try in order to help with blood flow and prevent vein disease, or as a great recovery treatment for athletes. It’s a great way to take care of yourself, but don’t fret – we’ll help you understand what the heck compression therapy actually is (hint: it’s not just socks!), why you should use it, and why it’s beneficial to everyone – not just athletes.
What is Compression Therapy?
Compression therapy is an effective method by which controlled pressure is applied to the extremities in order to increase blood flow and the efficiency of the lymphatic and venous systems. Traditionally, compression therapy uses socks or stockings, but Reboot uses newer technology that offers dynamic compression that utilizes compressed air to mobilize fluid and improve circulation.
How does Compression therapy work?
Poor circulation occurs when blood vessels and arteries narrow, making it hard for blood to pass through. Compression therapy works by adding pressure to contracting areas of restricted flow, allowing the veins in the limbs to loosen. This loosening decreases venous pressure, reduces edema, and aids the body in moving blood towards the heart. It also engages “lymphatic flush”, which facilitates the removal of waste, swelling, and inflammation from the body.
What Can Be Treated with Rapid Reboot Compression Therapy?
Compression therapy can also be good for anyone who spends long periods of time sitting, standing, or traveling on airplanes or in any type of vehicle. You also don’t have to wait until you see visible signs of vein disease in order to utilize compression therapy – it’s great preventive care. Pregnant women also benefit from compression therapy, since a number of women experience achy, swollen legs during pregnancy.
Reboot compression therapy is especially beneficial for athletes. Recovery is a crucial part of any training regimen and Reboot helps maximize circulation, helping you to feel better, train harder, and most importantly, recover faster.
What Are the Benefits of Compression Therapy?
There are a ton of benefits when it comes to compression therapy. For one, it keeps our legs healthy. To be quite honest, it’s easy to take our limb health for granted or simply not think about it. When we’re young, we’re certainly not thinking about varicose veins or any venous diseases that we could possibly encounter. But even if you don’t think you need compression therapy, you can totally still benefit from it. Talking with your doctor about treatments for limb health can be an important, preventative healthcare step.
Why Should You Look Into Compression Therapy?
There are quite a few reasons. Let’s dive into it.
Have you ever felt like you were always stiff? Have you ever noticed that you were unable to touch your toes or move around with ease? You find yourself jealous of people in yoga class who can reach and twist their bodies in ways that you’re sure you could never do. Compression therapy is an excellent way to increase your flexibility. The compression of muscles actually relaxes them and the surrounding tissue and helps you with your range of motion.
Compression therapy also helps with blood flow – hence why it’s important for people who stand all day or sit for long stretches of travel. It helps to keep the blood flow healthy. Imagine all of the business people or pilots who sit for hours and hours in one position, flying from city to city.
It also aids with pain relief. Nobody enjoys chronic pain – it’s something that can be absolutely debilitating and hinder you from enjoying a full life. If you’re dealing with swollen and achy legs, the compression applied to the area helps reduce the swelling. Compression therapy is also used to prevent blood clots, especially after surgery.
Does Compression Therapy Really Work?
As with anything you’re not familiar with, it can be natural to feel a healthy dose of skepticism. It’s normal to doubt methods and therapies if you haven’t gone through and experienced it yourself.
Compression therapy can also be a highly effective treatment for venous leg ulcers (VLU). It was concluded that taking proper care of wounds paired with compression therapy will heal small venous ulcers over a short period of time.
Health studies aren’t the only thing that proves its value. Numerous professional athletes and sports teams swear by the benefits of ReBoot compression therapy and have made it an integral part of their training.
But it must be said again: if compression therapy is something you want to look into, always consult with your doctor first. They’ll be able to guide you and help you figure out a plan that’s beneficial to you.
Putting your health first is always beneficial. There is nothing vain or selfish about wanting to care for yourself in the best way possible – and compression therapy can help with that. You don’t have to be a professional athlete or a pilot who sits in the same position for hours and hours in order to benefit from compression therapy. Taking the proper steps to keep your blood flow and circulation healthy is important for the livelihood of anyone. Whether you’re an athlete wanting to achieve peak performance or a person who deals with pain and swelling in your legs, it can be extremely valuable to your options with compression therapy.
Mode A (Peristaltic): Starting with the foot and progressing up the leg, each section compresses, then decompresses before the next section compresses. Once the top section (thigh) decompresses, the cycle begins again.
Mode B (Recovery): Starting with the foot and progressing up the leg, each section compresses and holds until the entire boot is compressed. All four sections then decompress simultaneously before the cycle begins again.
Is it FDA Cleared?
Yes. Rapid Reboot is FDA cleared for over-the-counter use (K182668) and is specifically intended for enhanced blood circulation and muscle recovery.
Although devices like Rapid Reboot have a variety of medical applications, if you have existing medical conditions such as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), or have had a stroke or embolism in the past, we encourage you to ask your doctor before using Rapid Reboot regularly. Your doctor may advise you to use Rapid Reboot differently based on your individual medical need.
Do I need to elevate my legs?
It is always a good idea, however, to be in a comfortable position. For the Boot attachments, this often means sitting on the floor, in a recliner, or laying on the couch or bed. For the Hip attachment, we do recommend laying down.
Can I use it before working out?
Yes, Rapid Reboot is safe to use before working out! In fact, it is great before working out or training because of the enhanced circulation and mobility it offers.
“What I love about the Rapid Reboot system is how easy it is to use. After a long day of training, recovery is essential for me to be able to continue to train and compete at the highest level so just putting this on makes a difference. The Rapid Reboot complete package is what I use because I can target multiple body parts at the same time.”
