Padded shorts work like compression shorts or under shorts but have the added advantage of padded panels. This extra padding keeps the wearer protected against a multitude of injuries, especially hip injuries, in contact sports, skiing and snowboarding. Padded shorts also give support, warmth and compression to relieve pain and other symptoms of sports injuries.
Used by elite athletes and during recreational sports, padded shorts work in the treatment and prevention of groin injuries, hip injuries and hamstring injuries. Padded shorts are also useful in the management and rehabilitation of Gilmore's Groin and sports hernias.
