|The more damage your body is trying to overcome, the more help you need. Successive treatments penetrate deeper into the tissue to help your body heal faster and give you greater peace of mind. It is better to err on the side of over treating for best results. Our products are 100% natural and safe for all ages. If you don’t need the extra treatment, keep it on hand. They are good for 1 year and if you or someone you care about gets injured, it’s great to be able to put one on right away.
- Move lightly as soon as possible – Do light stretching of the injured area to prevent atrophy and to enhance circulation. Movement also prevents the buildup of scar tissue. That said, don’t move too much too soon – you’re body needs time to recover. See the Qi Therapies or our video section for simple stretches. Typically you can start moving 3-7 days after your injury, but always start out lightly.
- Build strength gradually – Once pain and tenderness are reduced to low levels, start to strengthen the area while continuing to build flexibility. If it feels good from the previous day, add a few more reps or a little more resistance.
- Get in the water, if possible – If you have access to a pool, start to run or swim in the pool. The bouyancy of water takes the stress off joints and muscles, but also allows you to build strength because of the resistance. Stretches and onland exercises can also be done in the water for effective recovery.
- Test it before going full speed – Try and test your readiness before jumping back to full speed. This helps prevent reinjury.
- Train and play smart – Once you are back in the game. Train smart using QiVantage Performance Series of products to help you recover daily from the stress and strains of athletic training that can otherwise lead to injury.
