The application of pressure, warming and cooling is commonly used but never with any real precision. It is vital to change this ‘no control’ approach.
We must understand what is required and when. We need to ensure enough energy (cooling, warming, compression) is provided to deliver the best outcomes but not too much, which could potentially slow down performance or even cause damage.
Our bodies go through different stages of recovery and healing and our requirements change during this time. Understand these changes and you can track progress and also know what therapy to apply and when.
