Compression garments have long been known for providing muscle and circulatory support. Doctors often prescribe compression garments to help treat varicose veins, to avoid dangerous clots and thrombosis, to avoid blood pooling in the extremities, and to treat low blood pressure.

Many athletes and celebrities swear by their compression sleeves- claiming they have more energy, their muscles work more efficiently, and they avoid injury while exercising.2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
