Squid Therapy

Mark Niadas
“It took me a while to realize how significant recovery is, but when I did,  my lifts have gone up and I feel better all around. TSR’s staff is very professional and has helped me reach my goals and hit state records. In powerlifting, recovery is key! Otherwise, it is easy to get injured. For me, regular massages are a key factor in staying loose and feeling better.”

“To me, recovery is about absorbing work and preventing breakdown of the body. I have tight hips and physical therapy and preventative strengthening has helped me avoid injury. I have worked with Noah Abrahams at APM for 6 years now. His team is very detailed oriented and I trust them to help me stay consistent and injury free. Recovery helps you be prepared for the next workout, and consistent training is the most important part of performance.”

If you have a pinpoint injury, such as shoulder pain, tendonitis, calf strains (any muscle for that matter), aches or tears, our Squid Therapy system can help you mitigate the pain and speed up recovery to help you get back into action as quick as possible.

We all know that ice packs are a common treatment for acute muscle injuries and strain. Squid takes that to the next level by adding in compression to help increase circulation and healing while reducing inflammation.

Squid operates by combining sequential compression with cold therapy. Each Squid wrap was uniquely developed for a specific body part to direct swelling away while driving cold deep into the tissue. The combination of directional sequential compression and deep penetrating cold may help in reducing edema and pain while allowing better blood circulation in the treated area and reducing inflammation.

For athletes, Squid is an excellent recovery tool providing high efficacy cold therapy while driving metabolites such as lactic acid away from the treated muscle, increasing local circulation. The sequential compression and cold work together to remove lactic acid and drive the cold deep into the treated muscle or joint.

With your membership to Tucson Sports Recovery, you will have access to 8 squid sessions per month. Using Squid as a prevention tool can help you to address potential injuries before they occur.

Runners are especially prone to tendonitis and using Squid regularly at the first sign of inflammation can be a powerful tool to combat lower extremity pain that can be debilitating to consistent training.

Crossfit athletes and powerlifters often have pain in their shoulders and joints. This is another area that the Squid can be incredibly effective. The shoulder wrap can keep is very popular on after high volume chest, back or shoulder training days.
