For compression to be effective, it needs to be graduated. This means that the compression is tightest at the ankle and gradually loosens up toward the calf. This is important so that your body will actually benefit from the compression, ensuring healthy venous return. If the compression profile is not graduated, this can have harmful effects on the body.
Compression enhances the body’s natural process of flushing out lactic acid from your muscles. The compression helps push the deoxygenated blood back up to the heart to be filtered with fresh nutrients. This allows for faster recovery and helps rebuild muscle tissue and fibers, even after an intense workout. Simply put, wearing compression works to repair and recover your muscles while you are using them, shortening your recovery time.
Compression allows for fresh oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to your muscles. This gives your legs that ‘feel good’ effect, making them lighter, less fatigued, and more comfortable. Providing a more sufficient supply of oxygen and nutrients can benefit the body during activity, standing, and even sitting.
Think of your lymphatic system as a series of valves that open and close as your heart pumps. When wearing medical-grade compression, the perfect amount of pressure is applied to your veins and arteries that keeps those valves functioning at the highest level. This allows for blood to move more efficiently though the body thus improving circulation. Improved circulation reduces swelling, helps prevent blood clots, and enhances the body’s healing process.
