Exercise is vital to our overall health, but it is crucial that we exercise safely and effectively. Anas, our expert physiotherapist at fisio, emphasizes that feeling pain during or after a workout is not normal. Regular muscle recovery is essential for both athletes and those who are trying to get in shape. After working out, our muscles are put under stress, which may create micro-traumas that can recover on their own. The recovery time, however, will vary depending on several factors, such as diet and sleep quality. If you want to learn more about muscle recovery, check out our muscle recovery on our website.
If you have just started working out, it is worth adding planned recovery sessions to your routine to reduce the risk of injury and decrease pain. Plan your recovery day, but remember that this does not mean taking a day off altogether. Anas offers his top recommendations to help you in your muscle recovery journey:
Book a Sports Massage
Massage is one of the most effective tools for muscle recovery as it increases flexibility, reduces muscle tension, and decreases DOMS. At fisio, therapists begin by understanding your lifestyle and needs before creating a customized massage session. We use advanced techniques, done by a physiotherapist or massage therapist options.

Use Heat Therapy
Infrared saunas use direct heat to penetrate your skin and tissues, reducing stress and fatigue compared to traditional saunas. Additionally, we offer Tecar Therapy, a non-invasive treatment that uses electromagnetic waves to stimulate tissue regeneration and reduce inflammation. Both of these heat therapy options can be helpful for muscle recovery and pain reduction.

Try Leg Compression Therapy
Leg compression therapy offers targeted support over muscles to reduce swelling and tissue damage. It takes approximately 15 minutes to activate blood flow and release lactic acid. Air compression garments are favored by many professional athletes.
