How can COMPRESSION help to reduce muscle pains and injuries risks?

We have all experienced cramps or muscle pains during extended exercise sessions. Find out how compression can be a great partner to avoid these types of issues.

What happens to your muscles when you do physical activity?

It's all about muscle oxygenation. When the muscle makes a significant effort, it begins to be deprived of oxygen and burns the sugar it has left, which will produce lactic acid. This lactic acid will cause pain when it is in excessive quantities and body becomes unable to remove it..

Why can compression be effective?

Compression comes into the game because it allows to put pressure on the muscles (especially calfs) in order to bring deoxygenated blood back to the heart faster. This will significantly reduce the lactic acid production. Compression will therefore allow to: - Reduce fatigue and muscle pain (because less lactic acid production) - Accelerate recovery after exercise (because less lactic acid to remove) - Hold the muscles in order to reduce oscillations and reduce the sensation of fatigue «Before I had a lot of cramps and periostitis as well as heavy legs during or after my high intensity races, since I use compression with BV SPORT, all this has diminished a lot" as says the runner Xavier Fagard.
