If you exercise a lot, you must have worn compression sleeves during, and even after your workout, to support recovery. We’re shedding light on calf compression sleeves today — the tight garments worn over the calf muscles to provide compression, support, and stability. Calf compression sleeves are commonly used by athletes, runners, and people who suffer from circulatory problems and other similar ailments. Today, we’re going to understand how Flamingo’s Calf Support can come to your rescue.
Flamingo’s Calf Support refers to our extremely effective calf compression sleeve that works by increasing blood flow and oxygen delivery to the muscles, which helps to reduce swelling, inflammation, and muscle damage. The sufficient amount of support and stability it provides to the calf muscles helps lessen the risk of muscle strains and potential injuries.
And we’ve added some style to it! Flamingo Calf Support is made of a two-way stretch knit fabric which provides the necessary comfort while looking fashionable.
What Are The Benefits of Using Flamingo’s Calf Support?
1. Less muscle fatigue
Wearing Flamingo’s Calf Support during physical activity helps reduce muscle fatigue and soreness by promoting blood flow and oxygen delivery to the calf muscles.
2. Fewer chances of muscle injuries
Our calf compression sleeves provide added stability and support to the calf muscles, which help prevent injuries such as muscle strains and tears.
4. Better healing
Calf support sleeves help promote healing after an injury by reducing swelling and inflammation as well as improving blood flow to the affected area.
5. Better comfort
Wearing calf support provides added comfort and support for those who spend long hours standing or walking, such as healthcare workers, retail workers, or travellers.
6. Fewer chances of developing varicose veins
Varicose veins are caused by weakened or damaged valves in the veins that prevent blood from flowing properly, leading to the pooling of blood and bulges in veins. Compression sleeves help improve blood flow and reduce pressure on the veins, preventing the development of varicose veins.
Did you know? Calf compression sleeves apply graduated pressure to the legs, with the highest pressure at the ankle that gradually decreases as the sleeve moves up the leg. This helps to improve blood flow by pushing the blood back towards the heart.
7. Less Swelling and cramps
Calf muscles protected by compression sleeves are less prone to swelling and cramping. This is because calf compression sleeves improve blood flow to that area, which reduces fluid accumulation. Another advantage is that calf compression sleeves control muscle vibration that causes muscle fatigue. Overall, all these factors reduce the chances of muscle soreness or injury and boost recovery.
8. Additional support while running
Flamingo’s Calf Support is a great companion for runners and cyclists. It provides added support to the calf muscles and reduces the risk of muscle injuries such as strains, tears, or cramps.
9. Better leg recovery
As mentioned above, since calf compression sleeves reduce the chances of injury, they promote muscle recovery in an even speedier manner. The improved blood flow reduces any inflammation, thus, healing the calf area properly. Compression sleeves are also known to boost muscle relaxation, which results in lessening muscle tension and improving overall muscle performance.
10. Support during pregnancy
When you’re expecting, calf support sleeves can be helpful in reducing the risk of swelling, varicose veins, and blood clots. It is important to choose the right type of support for your needs and to use it properly to maximise its benefits. Flamingo has a wide range of medical compression aids that can be useful during pregnancy.Click hereto check out what best suits your needs!
11. Prevention of DVT
Flamingo’s Calf Support can be beneficial in preventing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is a blood clot that forms in a deep vein, often in the leg. It applies pressure to the calf muscles, which can help improve blood flow in the legs and reduce the risk of blood clots. It can also help prevent fluid buildup in the legs, which can lead to swelling and increase the risk of blood clots.
Did you know? Healthcare professionals often recommend calf compression sleeves for people who are at risk of developing DVT, such as those who have had surgery or have been on bed rest for an extended period of time.
