I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
I was so excited to get my air boot off after five long weeks!! Back in June I tore my gastrocnemius muscle when I bent over at an AllStar Tournament. The orthopedic put me in a Airselect Standard Walker to immobilize my muscle for the next month. Once it was off I began to worry about over using it. I decided to try a Caliloko Calf Compression Sleeve just for extra support. When I injured my calf I lived in my compression tights I thought their sleeves would be the best brand to try!
After taking my boot off I took it easy for the next two weeks wearing my compression sleeve to ensure that it had fully recovered! I would wear it under my jeans and no one ever knew unless I told or showed them. Then I began to slowly begin my exercise regimen. Thankfully it seems to have healed completely, but since I was out of commission for so long my legs tend to hurt when I over do it. On those days I revert back to wearing my Caliloko Compression Tights the next day when I’m feeling the pain. The compression is exactly what I need when I overwork my muscles.
Unfortunately, I’m not young anymore and my body definitely lets me know when I’m not acting my age. If you are not familiar with Compression Technology it helps you move blood faster to your heart. Caliloko Sports was inspired by the science of compression therapy. This seamless technology applies compression on the surface of your body to actively increase circulation through the body. For instance when I tore my gastrocnemius muscle compression pulled the blood through my leg by compression. The compression sleeve will:
> Enhance your blood circulation
> Bring stability to your muscles
> Increase muscle oxygenation
> Improve your athletic performance
