Abstract

Recovery is an important aspect of athletic training and during these years scientific knowledge of recovery techniques has increased [1]. But, many athletes compete or train without proper recovery which can cause burnout or poor performance [2]. There is also some misunderstandings that recovery is necessary in the case of injury occurrence and a tool for rehabilitation[3] and when the aim is not clear, improper methods may be used. The aim of recovery is acceleration of returning the body to pre exercise state. For this purpose, the body must be recovered physiologically and psychologically. Training and competition can cause fatigue in different aspects of metabolic, neural, psychological and environmental [4] and speeding up recovery process can reduce fatigue effects. Some programs and techniques are suggested for recovery and selection of appropriate recovery method depends on the intensity and volume of workloads and also recovery knowledge of athletes and coaches [5]. Several modalities are commonly used as recovery programs including massage, active and passive recovery, hydrotherapy, acupuncture/acupressure [5]. The use of modalities such as massage, floatation, hyperbaric oxygenation therapy and acupuncture has increased while little scientific evaluation of its use and effectiveness for exercise recovery exist [6]. The question is that which type of recovery technique is more effective than others.
