What is all the chatter about compression sleeves? You see them on players as they take the courts and fields. Sometimes they are on the calves, elbows, knees, and ankles. If you have ever wondered about the point of wearing them, this blog post is for you. These sleeves may come in different colors, but they all have one purpose in common: to improve blood flow. The tight, elastic-like band brings many benefits.

To get started you pull it on like a sock. Then, position it where needed and wear it during your workout, game, or recovery time. The beauty of a compression sleeve is that it provides the right amount of pressure without being harmful. It increases blood flow, enhancing circulation. Today, the PediFix team is highlighting some of the benefits of our effective compression products, available on our website.

Forefoot Compression Sleeve

If you recently had a bunion or hammertoe procedure, the forefoot compression sleeve should be your first choice. It helps to reduce swelling and limit edema. The product is comfortable, washable, and interchangeable.

Compression Anklet

The compression anklet is a pain-relieving accessory to ankle or foot sprains, strains, or surgery. The fabric is cool and comfortable, and the product helps to minimize the amount of swelling on your foot and ankle. Ankle injuries are common, and many go untreated. Check with a podiatrist if you are experiencing ankle pain.

Plantar Fasciitis Relief Sleeve

Our multi-zone sleeve has a knitted pattern and subtle “nodules” to help relieve pain and swelling that often accompanies plantar fasciitis. The product supports the arch and plantar fascia ligament, which stops heel pain. It also improves circulation and reduces inflammation.

Here are some of our favorite words: comfort, cushion, and protection. If you have Achilles tendonitis, Haglund’s Deformity, or similar conditions, get relief from tenderness or redness at the back of the heel. Enjoy the extra moisture from proprietary Visco-GEL.
