Compression for activity
The use of compression during activity has been well accepted and even has some clinical proof showing performance and recovery benefits. Compression use during activity is not just for the high caliber athlete but is also for the person who prefers low impact activities. There are multiple reasons compression products can benefit the “Everyday athlete”:
A better sense of awareness
Compression provides proprioception which is an unconscious awareness of the positioning of the body especially during movement. This heightened sense of awareness may help with better foot placement when walking prevent possible trips and falls.
Joint and muscle stability
Compression helps stabilize the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in and around the joint to prevent injury and provide a more comfortable experience.
With enhanced circulation when wearing compression, more oxygen and nutrients can be delivered to the body for more energy. Who doesn’t want to perform better?
