Everton FC’s Toni Duggan has revealed how the therapeutic benefits of heat and contrast therapy delivered by the ProMOTION EV1 device, have helped with her recovery from a back injury.
Toni is the latest professional footballer to be an ambassador for the ProMOTION EV1 and speak about it publicly, after experiencing its benefits first-hand.
The ProMOTION EV1 is a cutting-edge device trusted by elite sports clubs and backed by academic research, developed to support professional athletes to get back to fitness, faster.
The portable, hand-held device delivers cooling, heat, contrast therapy and compression all in one small device, enabling it to be used on a range of common complications seen in sport, either in the therapy room or on the go.
Following a period of recurring back pain Toni used the EV1 to apply the therapeutic effects of heat to her lower back, giving her the advantage she needs to stay at the top of her game.
“We’ve had some long travel journeys to London – four hours or so – and you get a strap with it, so I put it on my back so it’s always targeting that area.”
Whether it’s focussing on nutrition, hydration or recovery, Toni understands that to stay at the top of her game everything she can do helps.
“How you prepare for the next game and those marginal gains; every bit counts, especially in elite football,” says Toni. “At the top level, they’re the bits that can make the difference.
“As a professional at the top of your game, you have to look at things around the game that can help you improve and be ready for the next game.
“This product enhances your recovery. Any little marginal gains you can get, every player wants to have it, wants to use it, wants to get benefits from it. “For me, it's a top end product and one I'll be using for the rest of my career.”
Toni Duggan is one of the biggest names in women’s football and has been a large part of the success of England’s Lionesses. She returned to Everton last summer signing a two-year deal, following stints at Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City.
The ProMOTION EV1 is available now with free demonstrations offered for clubs preparing for the new season.
