Injuries are a frustrating part of sport (and life) that show up as chronic-type injuries when you have no clue what caused it or traumatic-type injuries when it was inevitable in the moment. I have dealt with both types of injuries personally and as a physical therapist helping athletes sort it all out.
Whether you are a seasoned runner or an everyday athlete, new to the fitness game or just want the benefits of compression gear for blood flow, make sure you purchase it from a company that is knowledgeable of what true medical compression gear is and how it will benefit your performance and recovery time. The few extra minutes you take to ask the right questions can make all the difference in the world.
By now, most athletes are familiar with compression wear; you probably even have your own favorite compression sleeve or brand that you wear while running, biking or working out. You might even know the importance and benefits to your health and performance that compression wear can provide, but are you fully reaping the benefits of compression wear?
