SaltWrap Voodoo Mobility Compression Bands are one of the most effective therapeutic tools for solving joint pain and controlling inflammation. Used as a Warm-Up and Therapeutic (Recovery) Tool, SaltWrap Voodoo Mobility Compression Bands can be used on any joint and mid-limb (e.g. upper thigh). Compression bands improve tissue oxygenation and restore proper joint mechanics through a variety of methods:
Wrapping a joint with the compression band causes occlusion, or reduced blood flow to the area.After 2-3 minutes of wearing the compression band(s), it can be taken off to increase blood flow to the area. This helps with recovery and circulation by shunting oxygen-rich blood to the area.
Range of Motion & Joint Mechanics
The compression band provides a shearing force (i.e. a force perpendicular to, or against, the joint). This force compresses tissues and restores proper sliding surface function to the underlying soft tissues. Also, in a compressed state the joint is in its proper bio-mechanical position, which enhances muscle contraction. Many athletes can benefit from moving through normal ranges of motion to re-train muscle fibers and systems to fire properly.
Swelling & Inflammation
Compression bands can also be used to treat acute inflammation in a joint or limb. By wrapping the area tightly with the band, swelling and inflammation is pushed back into circulation where it can be drained (and cycle through the lymphatic system).

How to Use
*Mobility compression bands are most commonly used on the knee, wrist, elbow, shoulder, and ankle joints.
WHEN: Use compression bands prior to exercise (on the joints being exercised) to warm-up the tissues, increase blood flow, and reduce risk of injury. Use after exercise or during rest periods to increase circulation and further improve recovery. Do not leave the bands on a joint for more than 3 minutes at a time.
HOW TO WRAP: Start by wrapping the band tightly around the joint (on the side farthest from the heart). Wrap the band around the limb 3-4 times, moving toward the joint and overlapping each revolution by about 1/3 of the band width. Continuing past the joint, wrap the band around your limb (arm or leg) for another 3-5 passes. When you are almost out of band, stretch the end of it and tuck it firmly under your last fold (in the band).
For a knee or elbow joint, you should be able to wrap the band around the limb 4-5 times on each side of the joint. The key is to wrap the band tight enough to feel pressure, but not so tight that it cuts of circulation completely (should NOT be tourniquet tight).
HOW TO MOVE:
After wrapping your joint, move through normal ranges of motion for 2-3 minutes, then remove the band. For ankles and knees, normal movement could include walking, squatting without resistance, or doing several lunges.
For shoulders, elbows, and wrists - move through normal ranges of motion and ensure that you are able to reach your "end range." By moving to the end of your range of motion, you are allowing the compression band to compress tissues and massage out inflammation and "glued" tissues that impair mobility.
You should feel slight discomfort in the soft tissues that are banded, and will likely experience some discomfort on the skin. This is normal and acceptable, as long as you are not breaking the skin or causing severe bruising.
