Joint Supports

Joint Supports

Joint supports play a role in both injury recovery and injury prevention and hence why there are different types. I’ll explain the difference and when and why you might need a joint support. Rehabilitation supports or braces limit movement of a joint to allow for optimum healing of muscle or ligament for injury recovery. Functional supports or braces allow for full movement while providing support for muscles and ligaments at high risk of injury for injury prevention. Throughout the recovery process, it is common to start off with a more supportive rehabilitation style brace while you work through your rehab by strengthening the muscles and ligaments around the injured area. Then weaning onto a less restrictive and more functional option for return to activity, which you can continue wearing for long-term injury prevention. Functional braces can also work to unload or reduce pressure on key areas that may be painful...

Recovery & DOMS with Physio Phebe

Recovery & DOMS with Physio Phebe

Adequate recovery is key to performance, but what exactly should it involve? And how can you minimise the dreaded post-exercise muscle soreness?  If you've ever felt sore or stiff the next day or the second day after an activity, you are certainly not alone. This is technically known as “delayed onset muscle soreness” or in physio slang “DOMS”. It develops 24-48 hours after unaccustomed high-intensity physical activity and is often worse if your activity involved a lot of eccentric exercises (when the muscles lengthen during load) such as downhill running. What actually happens to the muscles fibers is they undergo some micro-trauma or micro-tears and hence result in pain/soreness. The muscles act pretty rapidly, as they get worried you are going to do this again to them and start to work to prevent muscle damage. If you train regularly and gradually increase your load, you will start to experience it...
