Calf Compression Support
- About Bearhug
A calf support can help you avoid muscle fatigue through its ability to provide compression, aiding in the recovery process after a long workout or a big match.
Continuous unaddressed muscle fatigue may lead to further complications later on down the line, often appearing as a result of overuse.
Our calf supports can also help you combat painful injuries like shin splints, a common ailment that can occur through many forms of sport and general exercise.
In 2014 Bearhug's co-founder was battling with a long-standing ankle injury that was threatening to put an end to his competitive rugby playing days. Not one to lie down and accept defeat this kicked off a worldwide search until he found a support that could get him back out there. Fast forward two years, the pack was formed and Bearhug was born.
A calf support can aid compression extremely well in the legs, as it helps prevent gravity from getting in the way (your legs need to fight against gravity to circulate blood effectively when you’re standing for long periods), making it a superb piece of equipment for those of you who participate in active sports and exercise.
By increasing the blood flow through your legs with the help of compression, nutrients have an easier time accessing your damaged muscles, accelerating the healing process in many cases.
Not only is this a huge benefit for when you’re active, but it also greatly aids the rest and recovery process.
It’s important to make sure you rest if you’re suffering from fatigue and muscle strain of any kind, as this is necessary for aiding the recovery process.
Many athletes and fitness enthusiasts choose to wear calf supports while they rest specifically to decrease recovery downtime and speed up recovery, allowing them to get back to their exercise routines as soon as they can.
Lower Leg and Calf Blood Flow
Consistent poor blood flow can result in reduced healing rates, and it may contribute to leg injuries if left unaddressed. Thankfully, Bearhug calf supports have been scientifically proven to increase blood flow by 40% in the legs, helping your overall circulation improve.
A good calf support can also enable your weakened leg muscles to keep warm, and if you’re a fitness enthusiast, you’ll probably know that warm muscles tend to exhibit better blood flow. If your calf muscles are prone to stiffness, they might suffer when the colder weather hits and they start to contract.
This results from better circulation, another element that can help you avoid muscle fatigue after playing sports or exercising.
Looking after your calf muscles is critical when you’re training your agility and fitness, no matter the sport or activity in question. If you have any questions about our products, feel free to get in touch, we’ll always strive to find you a solution that suits your needs.
