Compression as a recovery tool; why you need it!

By: Cam Ferrari at Modern Athletic Health


Compression attire, while not a cure-all for DOMS (muscle soreness), or fatigue, has its place in anyone's repertoire after a tough workout. Studies on compression clothing have been shown to reduce muscle soreness, improve blood flow (and reduce deep vein thrombosis), and increase muscle recovery.  When worn on the lower body, specifically around the calf, compression socks can prevent calf cramps and shin splints; the worst nightmare for an athlete.  Using a compression sleeve has numerous benefits that will help you to perform at the top of your game, day after day.


VinZen Wellness, a company that specializes in calf compression sleeves, created this product because they know and understand why recovery is important for everyone.  The company, founded by two individuals, set out to create a product that would aid to help everyone, regardless of background, to live a better quality, pain-free life.  Currently, Vin Zen has 4 sizes of their men's and women's calf compression sleeves in black (Small through X-Large),  but are working to manufacture more colors and sizes soon. They also currently offer men and women's silicone wedding bands as well, perfect for any active individual or athlete. They also have been working to create full length calf compression socks, knee compression sleeves, and more to help you enjoy whatever you choose to do in life.
