Calf supports or sleeves usually fit around your calf from the ankle to below the knee. You wear them for many different conditions, such as running, workout, and recovery from an injury. Calf supports provide graduate pressure to your calves and help direct fluid flow away from calves and up to your heart.

They also increase pressure in your veins, increasing blood flow back to the heart, which ensures a constant flow of fresh blood in the veins. Wearing calf supports helps keep the muscles warm during exercise and sports, making muscles less prone to injury and fatigue. The primary function of calf supports or sleeves is compression to your calves. You should consult your GP to choose the best grade or compression calf supports; for example, if you stand on your feet all day or are travelling, a 15 – 25 compression level calf support is the best option; or if you need to wear calf support to treat varicose veins and other circulatory issues, the calf supports or sleeves with 25 – 40 compression levels may be best.

Generally, there is no rule about how long you can wear calf support, but you need to know when to wear one. If you are injury-free and exercising, you can wear calf supports during the exercise session for support; and if you suffer from a calf strain or other problems, you can wear them to remove the symptoms.

Make sure that you are wearing calf supports under the instructions of your trainers or GP to get potential benefits. It is worth noting that wearing calf supports incorrectly or excessively can cause wounds and irritation to the skin, so it’s best not to wear them unnecessarily.

Whether you need protection in sports or to speed up the healing process following an injury, calf supports can be helpful in both situations.
