Neymar using NASA tech to help recover in time for World Cup 2022 Round of 16

In Brazil’s opener at the 2022 World Cup, Neymar was fouled nine times, and suffered an ankle injury. The entire team was fouled a total of 12 times, which shows how aggressively the playmaker was marked. 

The PSG star took to Instagram to share how he is recovering from his ankle sprain, as it was diagnosed after tests. His foot showed a significant amount of swelling, and he is using NASA technology to help recover in time for the beginning of the knockout stages

The 30-year-old is using a compression boot to help speed up his recovery. The device uses NASA technology to combine three different massage techniques and increase blood circulation. 


The boot stimulates venous return, reduces swelling, relieves pain, reduces muscle fatigue, eliminates accumulated lactic acid, cramps and improves soft tissue and bone healing. NormaTec, the recovery system, is trusted by 97 percent of professional teams.

With advancement in healthcare, athletes are experiencing a slow and steady decrease in recovery times. This has helped boost their performance dramatically, amidst a hectic schedule that requires them to play almost every three days. 

It now remains to be seen whether Neymar can start their Round of 16 fixture once he is fully back on the pitch.
