RECOVER LIKE AN NBA STAR
SKINS is supporting NBA star Spencer Dinwiddie in his recovery to get back to the game.
In 2020, NBA star, Spencer Dinwiddie, suffered a partial tear of his right knee ACL in game 3 of the Brooklyn Nets season. Spencer had to have surgery to repair the tear and is currently working to rehabilitate his knee for a solid return to the NBA. SKINS are providing active and recovery sports compression to assist in his strength training and recovery.
SKINS COO Benjamin Fitzmaurice said: “We make athletes of all levels perform better. We know what pressure to apply and where to apply it on the body to naturally enhance blood circulation, limit the damage during training from muscle vibration and recover faster. We have set up both training and recovery protocols for Spencer. The active compression wraps the muscles during strength and cardio sessions, providing necessary structural support and dampening damaging muscle vibrations.
When it comes to recovery, we are concentrating on the muscular groups of the calf, quad and glutes. We want to ensure that we are accelerating the recovery process by flushing out unnecessary waste products from the muscles, speeding up the delivery of blood for healing any fine tears, and putting Spencer in the best position possible for his return to competition. The recovery compression is also applicable to travel to ensure the efficient protection of the body when passive and sitting.”
"Following my ACL surgery, I have to build back strength in my training and recover as quickly as I can. SKINS are helping me maximize my recovery between sessions and be the best in training. Thanks to SKINS Compression, I'm gaining strength and power in training." - Spencer Dinwiddie
Spencer has already indicated that he is optimistic about his return to the NBA. He has an injury exemption waiver for the rest of the season, but on Sunday, 28 March, he confirmed to the Brooklyn Nets fansite, Nets Daily, that he wants to pull on the jersey again this season. With the enhanced training and recovery assisted by SKINS compression, this is an achievable target, and we expect Spencer to come back strong and healthy.

SKINS PROTOCOLS FOR BASKETBALL
Basketball is dynamic. It’s intense and requires you to run the motor hot with short sharp sprints, stopping, jumping, landing and focus. Just the floor’s impact following a jump or running can place 3 to 4 times your body weight through the joints and muscles.
The key muscle groups are:
- Calf muscles
- Quadricep muscles
What to be aware of:
- Energy loss through increased vibration damage in the muscles from landing
- Sluggish performance due to inefficiencies in flushing the waste products inactive muscles
- Muscle tears
- Lack of thermo-regulation of the muscles
