    Hockey Recovery 101

    Hockey Recovery 101

    Hockey is a sport that requires speed, quickness, agility and balance.  In addition to these attributes, the physically demanding aspects of the game like body checking and battling for the puck require hockey players to have great strength and stamina as well. 

    The sudden stops, starts and battles along the boards use a multitude of muscles, but in particular the ones in your core and lower body.  With such a physical toll being placed on players, RECOVERY is extremely important, for maximizing performance, but more importantly, INJURY PREVENTION.  Below are some product suggestions for Hockey Players of all levels and ages to keep you IN THE GAME.  

    DURING ACTIVITY

    • Wear the Performance Pants as base wear (Men's, Women’s or Capris) or wear the Circulation Shorts underneath your regular base wear
    • Knee Sleeves can be worn underneath the Performance Pants to provide additional support for aching knees helping to ease soreness and fatigue.
    • Arm Sleeves are a great option to help combat forearm fatigue or stiffness from shooting, stick-handling and puck battles
    • Sport Socks are perfect for hockey as they have a seamless toe to help avoid blistering or toe discomfort in your skate, plus they have a fitted Heel Cup to decrease foot fatigue and pain from plantar fasciitis.
    • The Body Sleeve is an ideal item to wear during games as it will help reduced fatigue in your core and back, two muscle groups that are incredibly important to hockey players with all the quick changes in momentum. 

    POST ACTIVITY
    If you ask any high-performance athlete or coach, they will tell you performance is directly related to how well you can recover.  A recovered muscle will perform better, allow you to train harder and be less susceptible to injury.  Although many of the products above can be worn post game as well, the NUMBER ONE product we recommend is the Leg Sleeves.  Leg sleeves can be worn immediately AFTER ACTIVITY and WHILE ASLEEP to increase blood flow and accelerate recovery.  The increased blood flow helps flush out lactic acid and other pain causing chemicals and deliver much needed nutrients and oxygen to aid muscle repair.  NO ice, NO creams, NO machines.  Just put them on, kick your feet up and recover.

    Incrediwear's revolutionary circulation enhancing fabric works to reduce swelling, alleviate pain, muscle fatigue and soreness.  Incrediwear products are not only for athletes, but for any anyone with joint pain, injuries or circulatory conditions.  For more info about the technology click here.

    Injury Prevention & Recovery Essentials for Athletes

    The most common sports injuries among young athletes:

    • 21% of all traumatic brain injuries among children in the U.S. are sports related.

    • Knee pain for young athletes should be taken seriously, and not just as growing pains. Overuse injuries are a large percentage for young athletes who play multiple sports. Overuse injuries can lead to more serious injuries such as ACL tears, with girls 8 times more likely to suffer an ACL injury than boys.

    • The most common injury seen in an emergency department for a sports-related injury is Sprains & Strains. In 2012, there were approximately 451,480 reported, and it is estimated to be higher with the increase in of participation in sports among youth.

    Never Leave Home Without Your Anti-Inflammatory Wear

    Never Leave Home Without Your Anti-Inflammatory Wear

    In 2016, there were over 44 million people in the United States who participated in hiking and/or backpacking activities in the spring. The risk of reported injuries is estimated to increase as the number of participants for these outdoor activities is also estimated to increase this year.
     
    It is fully recommended you carry a first aid kit whenever you hike or backpack for any length of time. What many may not know is a number of common injuries can help be prevented by using Incrediwear anti-inflammatory wear on your body while you enjoy the great outdoors. Some of the more common injuries while hiking/backpacking are sprained ankles, and overuse injuries such as; bursitis, tendonitis, and IT syndrome. Wearing Incrediwear anti-inflammatory wear during hiking/backpacking not only helps you to avoid these common injuries, but reduces inflammation and pain to accelerate recovery if an injury does occur.
     
    Incrediwear’s anti-inflammatory wear is often mistaken as just another “compression” product, but in fact; the focus of Incrediwear is not compression. Through various product studies, we have documented the best way for accelerating recovery is to increase circulation. Increasing circulation may sound like you are being warmed you up; however, increasing circulation can also cool you down. This is called Thermo-Regulation, optimizing your body to flush out inflammation. Incrediwear anti-inflammatory wear reduces pain, swelling, inflammation and help improve mobility.
     
    In a 2015 NPR article, Abigail Stickford — a postdoctoral research at UT Southwestern Medical Center (Dallas, Texas) — tested the claims of compression in a small study using calf sleeves. The claims were improved blood flow and oxygen delivery to the muscles. What did she find after testing 16 endurance runners? “We found nothing,” she said. There was no measurable difference in using or not using compression. What we can determine from this is certainly one thing? The placebo effect can work.
     
    So how does Incrediwear anti-inflammatory wear differ from compression. For one, our documented results show that our products work. Secondly, there is no way our product can fool the amount of medical professionals who have seen how Incrediwear anti-inflammatory wear works. We come recommended by medical professionals such as the Andrews Institute, The Center for Advanced Orthopaedics, ISMI, & many more; as well as professional athletes and trainers in several sports worldwide.
