Cambivo benefits include a range of leg and knee support that boosts blood flow, supports muscular endurance and increases performance. They are also suitable for runners and those suffering from shin splints or foot pain.
Micky, a weightlifter, says the sleeves do a good job of providing knee support. However, he warns that they’re not ideal for heavy workouts that require a lot of knee extension support.
Reduces Leg Cramps
Cramps are a common problem in the legs, especially in women. They often occur at night, making it difficult to get a good night’s sleep. They can be caused by a number of things, including medications, high-intensity exercises and muscle fatigue. They can also be caused by nerve dysfunction, or by metabolic causes. However, most of the time, leg cramps are idiopathic, meaning they don’t have an obvious cause.
This study will assess in a randomised controlled trial whether daily use of knee-length compression stockings or magnesium tablets prevents leg cramps. The primary outcomes will be the frequency and intensity of leg cramps and the quantity of nocturnal awakenings due to cramps. The results will be collected through consecutive electronic questionnaires and will be analysed using a one-way analysis of variance of repeated measurements. Participants will keep a diary of their symptoms in order to improve the reliability of the data and minimise recall bias.
Shin Splints Trouble
Shin splints are the result of repetitive stress on the muscles and connective tissues that attach the muscles to your bone. This stress causes a dull, throbbing pain in the front of your leg during and after exercise. Shin splints are often mistaken for muscle fatigue or pushing too hard on workouts, but if left untreated, they may progress to a stress reaction or a stress fracture.
The most important factor in treating shin splints is rest. Take several weeks off from the activity that caused the shin splints. During this time, replace the activity with lower impact activities, such as swimming, using a stationary bike or exercising on an elliptical trainer.
When you return to your exercise routine, increase the frequency and intensity slowly. Use running shoes that fit well and provide cushioning to reduce strain on your legs. Stretch and foam roll your leg musculature before and after exercise to increase flexibility. Incorporating an ice bath after a workout is helpful to reduce inflammation.
