Elevated Legs compression is a new service now available at Highlands Sport and Spine. This non-invasive, FDA cleared recovery method helps your muscles recover faster to keep you training hard; on a more consistent basis.
Through a series of intermittent pneumatic compression, the Elevated Legs system increases blood flow and helps eliminate metabolic waste from your muscles. The result? Faster recovery and improved performance.
Whatever it is you are training for, your muscles take on stress that damage fibers and cause inflammation and metabolic waste buildup. This results in soreness and/or fatigue thus inhibiting you to exercise to your fullest potential and increases your risk of injury.
Incorporating Elevated Legs into your training routine will enable accelerated muscle recovery time that your body does naturally so you can maintain your training intensity and improve your overall athletic performance.

Increased blood flow helps to clear metabolic waste from your muscles
Elevated Legs compression systems provide sequential intermittent pneumatic compression to promote increased blood flow and help clear metabolic waste from your muscles. This ability to promote increased blood flow is what leads to faster athletic recovery.
During your training sessions, the stress that your muscles receive causes micro damage to the muscle fibers. This damage leads to inflammation of the muscles as well as the build-up of metabolic waste. The resulting combination of soreness, fatigue and reduced muscle strength all add up to significantly limit your ability to exercise to your full potential and reap the most benefit from your next workout. This is why the ability to recover more quickly is so important.
Including Elevated Legs into your daily recovery routine can help you to accelerate the recovery process that your body’s lymphatic and vascular systems do naturally over a longer period of time. By promoting increased blood flow, pneumatic compression helps your body remove the accumulation of waste in your muscles faster and more efficiently than your body can normally. Your muscles heal and can recover faster.
Recover faster and more effectively to improve your performance
Though there are many factors to consider when you’re looking to improve your performance, the ability to consistently execute your training sessions ranks pretty high on the priority list. But consistent training alone isn’t enough if your body isn’t sufficiently recovered. Muscle soreness, reduced muscle strength and fatigue will severely limit the effectiveness of your training and can lead to a cycle that actually inhibits regular training and creates a potential for increased risk of injury.
This is why many athletes are now incorporating a regular recovery routine into their training plans. Making sure that you’re getting sufficient sleep and the correct nutrition to aid recovery is a great place to start. Including at least one 30-minute compression session in our Elevated Legs will provide additional athletic recovery benefits.
The sequential intermittent compression provided by Elevated Legs works to increase blood flow and speed up your body’s natural process of removing that post-workout accumulation of metabolic waste and lactic acid in your muscles. Your muscles will feel less sore, less fatigue and be more recovered in order to take advantage of your next workout. Your ability to recover faster from training sessions will enable you to more effectively and consistently maintain (or even increase) your training volume and intensity, and ultimately improve your performance.
