The compressive element of the material also stimulates blood flow, which can help prevent the build-up of lactic acid both during and following activity, reducing the prospect of cramp and stiffness whilst also being a valuable recovery and rehabilitation tool to injury. The PhysioRoom compression calf support will hold the muscles firmly in place. This stops the muscles from vibrating and other movements that can cause pain, as well as wasting energy. Moisture from sweat will also be wicked away from the sleeves, keeping you in constant comfort. This support helps strains, sprains and instability, supporting weak, injured or arthritic calves during sporting and occupational activities. It can be used by both men and women.
