BioSkin Thigh Skin Support
An injury to the thigh and upper leg area can be extremely painful and can be uncomfortable whether you're sitting or standing. This area of the body is integral to your movement and balance, and any injury can seriously affect you ability even to walk in comfort, so the swifter the recovery, the quicker you can get back to daily life. The BioSkin Thigh Skin Support offers high levels of constant compression for wrap-around wear on the thigh, so your pain can be managed and your recovery put in the best possible hands.
Who Can Make Gains with the BioSkin Thigh Skin Support?
This Thigh Skin Support gives excellent compression and pain relief with the added benefit of the cinch strap, which allows you to target the compression over the painful area in injured quads or hamstring. Depending on whether you are using the support with or without the strap, this BioSkin product can be used with the following conditions:
- Shin splints
- Sprains and strains
Used with the Cinch Strap:
- Iliofemoral sprain
- Thigh sprain
How Can the BioSkin Thigh Support Help?
There are numerous muscles in the upper leg that work to bend and straighten the knee and hip. In addition to this there are adductor muscles on the inside of the leg that bring the thigh back to a central position.
During sport and exercise these muscles are put under considerable stress and can become damaged. The BioSkin Thigh Support provides strong compression, which can help blood flow to the injured muscle, speeding up healing times and helping the muscle repair itself.
Unique BioSkin Ultima Material
BioSkin Ultima is a thin, breathable material that allows perspiration to evaporate to keep you cool. Its unique SkinLok feature means the sleeve won't slide down the leg, even during vigorous activity.
