MUSCLE + LIGAMENT SUPPORT
AND HOW COMPRESSION CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED ATHLETIC COMPRESSION
Lack of Support Causes Injury
Ligaments are the connective tissue in your joints that hold your bones together. Similarly, tendons are the connective tissue that hold your muscles to your bones. Both tendons and ligaments can be very susceptible to injury, especially for athletes. Athletic activity—including repetitive movements, collisions, or sudden twisting—can all lead to ligament injuries or tendonitis. These injuries have the consequence of sidelining athletes for lengthy periods.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Protect Ligaments + Prevent Injury
The stretchy fibers and snug fit of compression socks have the added benefit of providing support to overworked tendons and ligaments. The improvement to an athlete’s balance and the reduction of vibration can ward off some injuries and reduce stress to the muscles. Compression’s snug support can help hold ligaments and tendons in place reducing the tendency to tearing and inflammation.
