The only way to avoid an injury is to prevent it
Over 62% of injuries occur in PRACTICE from youth sports every year. (Johns Hopkins University) This accounts for more than 3.5 Million injuries which causes some loss of participation. To add to this growing problem, youth sports are increasing in volume each season with more practice and games times added to a schedule that really never comes to an end before it starts back up again.
To compete at a high level, kids are required to pick one sport and dedicate most of their spare time. Unfortunately this type of volume on their body can be detrimental through the growth process and is no different than what professional athletes are required to do for their sport.
So how do they avoid injuries that could cost them their career? The answer is Preventative Recovery.
At Elixir, we implement the most advanced therapies to help your youth avoid an injury by up to 87% each year. Inflammation, pain, and tightness are all signs of the body moving in the direction of injury, and that process is sped up with high volume activity. Elixir is designed with advanced protocols in place to restore muscle function and improve performance with a 20 minute session implemented just a few times a week. How do we do that? Let us show you!

These red and near infrared wavelengths stimulate your cells and reduce oxidative stress, so your body is able to make more usable energy to power itself. This increases function, speeds healing, and lowers inflammation & pain, as demonstrated in numerous peer-reviewed studies. Studies have also identified an increase in circulation following light therapy, indicating tissues are receiving more oxygen and other nutrients important for healing—while also ridding themselves of toxic byproducts.
For many, many years, people have followed the RICE principles (Rest–Ice–Compression–Elevation) to control pain and swelling following a musculoskeletal injury or surgery. But with Game Ready, you can do more than treat symptoms. Going beyond passive, static cold and compression applications, the GRPro 2.1 therapy system works actively and dynamically to accelerate and enhance recovery.*
After a workout, your muscles are exhausted, as if you cannot even take another step. There are methods of recovery, such as icing your joints and pain relievers to get rid of the ache, but they do not hit your body as effectively as NormaTec Recovery Systems do.
As a part of a person’s training routine, NormaTec is designed to speed up the recovery process with the use of compressed air that massage your limbs and moves fluid through the muscles.
Kinesio-Taping is used in all sports for joint stability and muscle performance. Applied correctly it can be very affective for performance and injury prevention. The best time to get taped up is before practices or games and also can be used post injury to help with muscle hypertrophy and joint strength acceleration. Stop in to an Elixir today and get taped up to experience the difference!
Whole-body vibration platforms enable the user to train various skeletal muscles, and trigger other body reactions. Effects described in the studies include: muscle strength and toning, cellulite reduction, improved bone density, heightened secretion of hormones associated with exercise, and depressed response of hormones associated with stress.
"Unbelievable what a difference it made in my daughter's performance on the court after using Elixir's recovery therapy for the first time this year! Would recommend to everyone except our competitors- lol"
