Post subject:  Neoprene Waist Band

i am a big fan of neoprene knee/elbow sleeves and the waist band.

What I find it interesting that people purchase knee and elbow sleeves to increase warmpth and circulation to those areas, and provide them with faster recovery. Yet they neglect to purchase a waist band for another vurnerable area, the lower back.

The knee/elbow sleeves are shown ..."to increased blood flow and faster injury recovery. The study also found that the support had a significant effect on the control of the knee, vital for injury prevention."

"The Effect of the Vulkan Neoprene Sleeve on a Slow and Fast Eccentric Control". http://www.mobilis.co.uk/physiotherapy/ ... aging.aspx

This more than likely applies to most neoprene sleeve brands, not only the Vulkan brand.

I use a neoprene waist band, as well as the sleeves. I "feel" that the waist band also leads "to increase blood flow and faster recovery" for my lower back, be it from an injury or a hard training session.

I'll have to look into that. My lower back tends to need more recovery time.
