LEG + FEET DISCOMFORT
AND HOW COMPRESSION CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED ATHLETIC COMPRESSION
Tired, Achy Legs + Feet
We ask a lot of our legs and feet. They move us from point A to B every day, but also help us to realize athletic goals or even dreams. Many of these activities can cause legs and feet to be tired and achy at the end of the day. Maybe it’s a long day on the golf course, a lengthy basketball practice, or even a marathon run. No one wants tired and achy legs to slow them down in life or in athletics.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Prevent Leg + Feet Discomfort
Wearing compression socks during athletic activity or any point where you are on your feet for long periods of time is the best way to prevent tired and achy legs and feet. Gradient compression like that found in Therafirm compression products is greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases further up the stocking or sock. This gradual decrease in pressure works along with your calf muscles to flush out lactic acid and reduce muscle soreness.
