PRO Compression issues a comment on the rising popularity of compression garments, pointing to the significant amount of medical research and anecdotal evidence indicating their effectiveness at improving athletic performance, speeding recovery times, and aiding circulatory problems.
Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) March 04, 2013
On March 4, PRO Compression, manufacturers of compression runners' and golf socks, issues a response to a recent article discussing compression garments and how they help athletes improve their performance and recovery.
According to the article from Edge on the Net, compression clothing is becoming an increasingly popular trend among athletes today, with many professional athletes having been noted for wearing them. Many people claim to wear compression clothes because they increase blood flow, reduce recovery time and even improve performance – but do they actually work?
The article reports that compression clothing “prevents muscles from vibrating excessively to reduce muscle soreness and fatigue, while also aiding performance in the moment. The fabric also has graduated pressure, which is what the medical industry designed to increase blood flow throughout the body.”
However, the article claims that some people have reservations whether compression garments work, and some who say that the tight material is too restricting. The article goes on to say that doubters should give compression clothing a try, pointing out that so many athletes have claimed to see improvements from compression garments that it’s a difficult phenomenon to ignore. “You still need to work out, exercise, and perform to reach your abilities and accomplish your goals. But any potential extra boost, whether physical or mental does not hurt,” the article states.
“I can see why people would question the effectiveness of compression socks,” says Eric Smith, CEO of PRO Compression. “But these clothes were scientifically designed to increase blood flow. Naysayers can refer to the ample body of research out there confirming the effectiveness of compression garments for both athletes and people suffering from circulatory problems. More blood flow means more oxygen being carried throughout your body. They really give you an extra boost.”
Smith adds that compression socks are especially good for replacing your old, non-performance athletic and golf socks. Being out on the links during a hot summer day can really take a lot out of you, and can leave you tired and sore the next day. “Wearing compression socks decreases your recovery time so you better faster.”
At PRO Compression we’ve created high-quality, graduated compressions socks tailor-made for the weekend warrior, elite athletes as well as savvy Tour players. Unlike the countless gimmicks that claim to improve your game performance, with PRO Compression socks, the instant, positive improvement isn’t an empty promise – it’s purely scientific.
