After a training session on the AlterG anti-gravity treadmill at Froedtert and a strength/core session with Mike this AM I had the opportunity to use the NormaTec MVP recovery boots. What a great resource for athletes and those recovering from injury and/or surgery. Froedtert Sports Medicine offers this resource to anyone interested for $5/session.

The NormaTec MVP (“Most Valuable Pump”) Sports Medicine Technology was created from the successful collaboration of physicians and athletes. Unlike the simple intermittent compression devices which have been around for decades, the NormaTec MVP mimics normal physiology to help athletes recover rapidly after workouts, injury and surgery. Although static external compression through wraps and compression garments has been used for years, the NormaTec MVP’s physiologically-based dynamic compression profoundly improves circulation and alleviates symptoms.
The NormaTec MVP has become the treatment modality of choice for athletic trainers around the country. Top Pro and College teams, the U.S. Navy SEALS, the Garmin-Chipotle Pro Cycling team, and other serious athletes seeking the best recovery tool are among those already incorporating the MVP into their daily protocols.

My training is going well. Trying to figure out some upper back and shoulder/neck spasms but overall the knee and lower back are doing great. I am so excited to start racing for Froedtert Performance Enhancement and Performance Running Outfitters in the coming months and have some huge and exciting goals for 2012. It’s the endless hours of dedication, focus, SMART training, and the amazing team that is guiding my way and providing such amazing care. Froedtert Sports Medicine and Mike Ribar, Dr. Werner and Grafton Chiro Center, Dr. John Lesko, Sonja, and many others. You guys are truly amazing. Thanks!!!
