Rehbands is a popular brand of compression and stability gear that is used for rehab and performance. In the medical world, we’ve been using compression socks for many years for people with poor blood circulation to prevent blood clots. Now athletes from many sports like basketball, running, fitness, football, volleyball, golf, snow sports and soccer are choosing Rehbands for compression therapy.
What is Compression Therapy?
Many athletes already rely on compression socks and shorts after a workout, and research shows that the use of compression garments reduces muscle soreness after sprinting and plyometrics. Compression therapy is a little more intense. By using the sleeve, which looks like a larger version of a blood pressure cuff, with multiple chambers attached to a pump that is connected to the control unit. The sleeve is programmed to provide sequential, pulsating compression to a specific area.
How Does Compression Wear Work?
When you work a muscle group hard, it becomes inflamed. With an inflammatory response we get an increased fluid and white blood cells to the affected area. This leads to swelling and increases in pressure, and therefore pain.
Compression garments “work” by constricting your muscles. That reduces the amount of fluid buildup, decreasing the swelling and pressure. The compression garments can also increase blood flow to the muscles, this helps remove creatine kinase, an enzyme in your muscles that leaks out after muscle damage and can cause the soreness. Rehbands compression gear isn’t a cure from soreness but it can help.

Injury prevention and recovery/rehabilitation.
Increase your performance while protecting your knees
IPF and IWF approved for competition
I am over 70 yrs old, have arthritic knees and workout 4-5 days a week. I was having trouble doing all the exercises I wanted to do because of my knees. When I got these and can now just about anything I want. My knees are more stable and warm. I think the warmth is a big factor in how I feel.
Relieves pressure and eases back pain
Use alone or under power belt
I love, love, LOVE this. I’ve got some residual back problems from my time in the service and with lots heavy training they tend to pop back up. But since I’ve started using this my back stays warm and loose for my entire training session. In addiion, they also come in handy at work. Standing on concrete all day in a manufacturing facility all day is tough on your joints and especially the low back. On long days I’ll throw it on for some extra support and it makes a world of difference.
