I was so excited for my daughter when I learned she made AllStars. At eight she is already considered one of the best players in her league. Her first tournament was two weeks ago, and I was volunteered to keep the books. After one of the games I bent over to collect my things, and I heard and felt a LOUD pop in my calf muscle. I was diagnosed with a ruptured plantaris tendon at a local Prompt Care the next day. He scolded me for taking Tylenol and wrapping my muscle. As an athlete I’ve always followed the steps rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE). The RICE method is a simple self-care technique that helps reduce swelling, eases pain, and speeds up recovery. While I waited for my next appointment I decide to try my Caliloko Sports compressionwear tights. They are made with premium yarns and its unique four-way stretch helps to activate the blood circulation, eliminate toxins, and prevent swelling.

It took two weeks to get me in to see an orthopedic surgeon to inform me it was a strained gastrocnemius muscle. The gastrocnemius muscle is a superficial two-headed muscle that is in the back of the lower leg (calf). It runs from its two heads just above the knee to the heel. Basically you can’t straighten your knee or flex your foot, which makes it impossible to walk. He gave me a Airselect Standard Walker to immobilize my muscle for the next month. He also recommended a Compression Calf sleeve. The Caliloko Compressionwear tights helped to relieve the pain, and I firmly believe they sped up my recovery. I have lived in these tights for the past two weeks.
This clothing line was inspired by the science of medical compression therapy and post-surgery usage of compression garments, Caliloko’s seamless technology applies compression on the surface of the skin to actively increase circulation through the muscles with the added benefits of:
•Enhanced blood circulation
• Stability to the muscles
• Increased muscle oxygenation
• Improved athletic performance
• High fashion style
