Not too long ago a middle-aged woman came in with a hamstring injury that she just couldn’t get over. Not only are these injuries painful, but they can take weeks or months to fully recover, putting a damper on your running plans for some time. This woman tried everything yet her condition wasn’t improving.
We offered her some advice, and she was able to fully recover quickly and start running again. So, what did we tell her?
We told her to wear a pair of CW-X tights all the time. That is it.
So, why did this work? It is really a matter of compression and support.
Compression wear helps to increase circulation in the legs, not only preventing cramping during a race but carrying away the inflammation to aid in faster recovery. That’s right, faster recovery.
In the same way you would wear a cast to support your broken arm, CW-X tights take compression to a whole new level. Their innovative tights are made in a way to grab all your major muscle groups to keep them supported in the proper position, not only making your run more efficiently during a race but also helping you recover more effectively with your muscles in the right position.
So, by having the proper support and compression on her injury at all times, just like a cast on a broken arm, she was able to recover quickly from her hamstring injury.
It is really quite amazing how the right running tech wear and clothes can not only help you to perform your best, but also recover from a race or a serious injury!
