Does a Compression Boot Help with Workout Recovery?

Research suggests that compression gear supports exercise recovery. One way it does this is by improving blood flow – compressing the blood vessels in the body helps them pump blood more efficiently. This aids in muscle recovery by improving blood circulation to the affected area.

Compression gear also contributes to reduced muscle fatigue. Muscle fatigue lessens the force with which the muscle can contract which results in lower strength performance. By alleviating this fatigue, the muscle is able to better recover, which allows it to push harder in the next workout. One study reports that compression helps prevent fatigue by improving muscle function.

What about muscle soreness? Can compression boots help reduce the discomfort experienced during recovery? According to some studies, the answer is yes.
