WHY COMPRESSION? Every muscle cell needs energy in the form of oxygen. This is transported to the muscles via the blood. The better the blood flow in the arteries, the better the muscles are supplied – and precisely why this supply can be positively influenced by compression.
PROVEN TO REDUCE INJURY Shin Splints: Reduces vibration, increases oxygen and promotes healing. Calf Cramps: Increase oxygen to optimize muscles, removes lactic acid. Achilles Issues: Increases oxygen to the Achilles; padding prevents damage. Pulled Muscles: Increases blood flow to increase warmth in the muscles. Traveling Issues: Graduated compression prevents venous reflux and pooling.
