The Effect of Compression Clothing Pressure on Recovery from Strenuous Exercise


High pressure compression garments improve recovery of muscle function after exercise-induced muscle damage 📈

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Recent study by Hill and colleagues (2017) showing that high pressure compression garments can improve recovery of muscular function measured through countermovement jump tests 🤔

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It should be noted that the low pressure rights group wore commercially available compression garments, whereas the high pressure group wore medical grade compression clothing ☝️

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Many athletes will wear commercially available compression clothing with the aim to improve recovery. However, if the pressures exerted by the garments are high enough, they are unlikely to have an effect ❌
