The lower leg consists of major muscles, tendons, and ligaments that work together to move the foot. The gastrocnemius and soleus make up what is commonly known as the calf, and help to point the toes downward (plantar flex). The tibialis anterior runs along the front of the shin and helps to point the toes upward (dorsiflex) and invert the foot. When overused or improperly used, these muscles can become strained or torn. BioSkin Compression Sleeves provide pain-relieving compression that promotes blood flow to the area, speeding recovery and enhancing performance.
The gastrocnemius and soleus make up what is commonly known as the calf. Overuse or sudden contraction of these muscles can cause a strain or a tear. Use a BioSkin compression sleeve to decrease swelling and pain and promote blood flow to the area.
