BENEFITS OF COMPRESSION: FIRST, DURING AND AFTER THE STRESS

Through the famous COMPRESSPORT clothing brand, we try to shed light on some aspects of muscle compression. What are the disadvantages of compression clothing? Why once did you use it and now do many sportsmen use it? What are the differences between the various phases of activity: before the effort, during the effort, after the effort?
Often participation in a sports competition keeps you away from home. Preparations, travel, visits lead you to a lot of walking or to keep a passive position for a long time: all this causes swelling in the legs and associated aches. Ever had the feeling of heavy legs before the race?

BENEFITS OF COMPRESSION BEFORE STRENGTH
Reduction and prevention of swelling of the lower limbs guaranteeing the feeling of fresh and light legs. From a sensory point of view, the pain and discomfort often experienced during muscular activity are reduced by wearing compression clothing.


COMPRESSION BENEFITS AFTER THE STRENGTH

AFTER PROLONGED AND UNUSUAL PHYSICAL SURGES PROVIDING MUSCULAR DAMAGES
PREMISE
Taking such efforts (road racing, mountain racing, triathlon) causes muscle micro-lesions that are characterized by a slow recovery of damaged tissue (a few days).
The healing process from these micro-lesions is the absorption of inflammation associated with a greater muscular circumference (swelling, edema).
The combination of these factors leads to sensation of discomfort and diffuse pain described as indolensity (peak at 48 hours): muscular strength and movement range are reduced in this period

COMPRESSION BENEFITS AFTER THE STRENGTH
Reducing swelling is one of the benefits of wearing compression clothing.
Even the numbness caused by a combination of factors such as swelling and inflammation is reduced.
Muscle strength and movement range regenerate faster by wearing elastic compression garments after efforts that create muscle microbonds.



BENEFITS OF COMPRESSION BETWEEN INTENSIVE / REPEATED SOURCES
CONTEXT
This type of stress fatigue we encounter in swimming as in various bike disciplines is mainly caused by the accumulation of metabolic toxins (lactic acid and others) and the exhaustion of energy reserves.
Compression, increasing venous return and muscle blood circulation after effort, accelerates the removal of toxins associated with fatigue and improves the supply of oxygen to the muscles thus speeding up recovery.
Performance is therefore improved with respect to a passive recovery without compression: pain and discomfort are reduced.



BENEFITS OF COMPRESSION DURING THE STRENGTH
Despite the cardiac vascular benefits that are too often used to justify the use of clothing to include during the stroke including stroke, at the moment the greatest benefit of compression is to reduce muscular swing.
Compression clothing absorbs the vibrations generated by the impact on the ground.
By limiting oscillations, elastic compression reduces micro lesions due to repeated shocks.
Muscle compression is therefore effective not directly acting on performance but by reducing or postponing muscle fatigue and perceiving stress that is often the cause of poor performance (eg, trail running).
In addition, elastic compression by limiting the microlesions reduces muscular indolension.
All this is an advantage for injury prevention: tibial tiredness, tendonitis or muscle injury.
Preliminary studies have shown an injury reduction of 26% when athletes are provided with elastic compression clothing (strain and recovery).
