Calf Compression Sleeves - A Fad or Latest Thing in
Runners will always be searching out the next big thing, or next thing that may provide them
with hook benifit of better their times. There exists a growing number of people wearing calf
compression sleeves in training and races and raving about them. We see the elites using them
like Paula Radcliffe.
But do calf compression sleeves have a very genuine physiological effect or perhaps it "in the
mind" as well as a placebo effect?
Compression sleeves are very known and accepted inside the medical arena for helping blood
flow and venous return. We all know these are advised for lengthy flights as well as post
operative patients in hospital for reducing swelling inside the legs.
They will have similar effects for runners also. Runners often experience sore muscles the day
after a hard session as a result of accumulation of lactic acid and micro tears from the muscles.
Wearing wearing a knee compression sleeve helps enhance circulation and reduce post exercise
swelling from the tissues following hard workouts. This implies the runner are able to do better
in training, making greater gains as well as train equally hard the following day.
There's also evidence that the compression helps you to stabilise muscle during motion to scale
back the vibration effect, thereby increasing muscle power during activity.
Within my own experimentation with running within them, my leg muscles used to be less sore
after my long running sessions whilst putting them on during activity. My times were also better.
I continued to utilize them in the office for 3 days after any long session along no calf soreness
where normally I would have sore calf muscles.
They have also been invaluable in making the transition to barefoot running to provide my calves
extra support do your best especially if I did a operate on a concrete surface. Every time a runner
decides to improve their gait pattern from heel striker to mid foot runner or forefoot runner lots
of muscles get used which have not been utilized for a while. It's quite common to have a great
deal of calf and foot pain prior to the muscles study the new pattern and have stronger with this
Some athletes wear compression sleeves during activity, some just use them afterwards along the
way home or in the office under their trousers.
Furthermore notice regular running clients who arrived at the clinic requiring sports massage on
his or her calves who usually suffer a great deal of calf tightness reporting much less tightness
and calf pain. Additionally, they report regular personal bests because of their 5 km and 10km
I really am an admirer determined by my very own results and people of my clients.
