The Shock Doctor’s prescription: Compression gear for the recovery of tired muscles

Boston Herald; Staff Writter

Add Shock Doctor compression apparel to the list of items that can help athletes feel great after an intense workout in the gym, weight room, fieldhouse, bike path or anywhere else on the exercise circuit.

The new line of SVR Compression products include socks, calf sleeves, long sleeve shirts and pants. While we’re not experts in the science behind them, we can attest to the fact that the SVR (Support Ventilation Recovery) Compression Long Sleeve Shirt ($79.99) seemed to do exactly as advertised. After a particularly aggressive upper body workout, the shirt felt great and we felt even better waking up the next day.

Made with a blend of nylon and spandex, the shirt is form fitting, but not constricting. Flat seams and breathability make it extremely comfortable. Shock Doctor says the garment’s compression helps improve oxygen flow to the muscles and reduce inflammation, which can cause soreness and fatigue.
