Athletic And Compression Socks
Athletic wear provides light-weight compression and support to working joints and muscles that helps improve venous return and oxygen, and accelerates recovery from sports training and competition. It may also be worn by for those who maintain an active lifestyle or may be at risk for developing Lymphedema.
Compression athletic wear helps to keep muscles warm and to prevent muscle or joint strain and fatigue. The additional warmth and support provided also helps to relieve pain from post-exercise muscle stiffness and soreness. Most are designed with specialty fabrics that help wick sweat away from the skin, keeping the body dryer and helping to prevent chafing and rashes.
Useful as either athletic wear or simply to provide general compression, the micro massage compression garments feature micro-massaging fabric that provides light graduated compression and works with the body’s natural movement to gently massage the skin and stimulate circulation.
Oftentimes athletic wear is used in conjunction with Kinesiology-sports tape as the tape’s adhesive backings creates a lifting effect on the epidermis which results in improved circulation and lymphatic drainage.
