Compex Recovery Device Selection

Compex is a total solution brand for recovery, which results in different methods, which can also be combined. It can be difficult sometimes to select the best recovery method for clients, based on recovery effectiveness, user diversity, costs/investment, easy application and understandability of a device. Before we make an overview of the recovery methods, you need to know the basics of recover and the effects of it.

In the muscle, the result of exercise and metabolic processes can be:

1. Lactate, metabolic waste, excess fluid in or around the muscle with a possibility of secondary symptoms of muscle soreness/pain (DOMS) and tensed muscles (stiffness, less mobility.

2. (Desperate) need for nutrients and oxygen for rebuilding.

3. Myofascial pain & stiffness (pain spots). Overuse or monotonous movements, circulatory and lymph drainage disorders and lack of oxygen, fluids and nutrients can result sticky and brittle fascia (connective tissue): pain spots and (myofascial) stiffness.

4. Neural fatigue local and central.

Possible solutions to resolve the effects of exercise (recovery):

  • Clearance of lactate & metabolic waste by improving blood flow (venous return)
  • Flush out fluids by improving lymph drainage
  • Rebuilding “damaged” muscles by improving blood flow for bringing in nutrients & O2
  • Relaxation of the muscle
  • Relief muscle soreness/pain (DOMS)
  • Relief myofascial pain(spots) / trigger points / pain spots in muscle
  • Loosen myofascial stiffness
  • Calming the nerve system

All recovery methods have pros and cons. Here below you can find an overview of each recovery method related to the Compex brand.
