Benefits of Compression - Increase Performance, Reduce Injury

blog_story_image_benefits-of-compression

 

  • Restores integrity to muscle tissues as they recover from various activities or exercise
  • Initiates a healing or recovery response to muscles that have been fatigued or hurt
  • Lessens inflammation and swelling in injured areas
  • Improves the efficiency of the muscle and joint pumps
  • Keeps the major muscles of the legs warm, decreasing the loss of energy from unnecessary motion and vibration, and reduces muscle fatigue and cramping
  • Prevents muscle pulls, reduce fatigue, and recover faster
  • Reduces the buildup of lactic acid in the muscles, allowing for faster recovery from workouts and competition

Reduce Fatigue

During exercise, your muscles are exposed to forces that cause vibration. This major cause of muscle fatigue, known as muscle oscillation, can be reduced when wearing compression garments. This leads to improved muscle endurance, strength and power.

Improve Recovery

Compression provides greater recovery from muscle soreness caused by exercise by helping the pumping action of the cardiovascular system; removing blood lactate from muscles leads to faster muscle repair and recovery.

Reduce Muscle Damage

Compression reduces muscle damage (microscopic tears of the muscle fibers) caused by certain types of exercise, identified as Delayed-Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS). Where there is pain there is damage and damage means that the muscle cannot be worked to its full potential. Therefore reducing the rate of muscle damage can have a direct effect on the productivity of the muscle.

Agility

Compression increases proprioception, which heightens senses and awareness for enhanced stability and agility. Proprioception can also help with improved technique as you remain aware of your body's positioning, improving the balance control system and muscle coordination.
