Ankylosing Spondylitis causes a lot of pain in my legs and my rheumatologist recommended I try compression socks or a compression sleeve and after doing some research I came across OS1st and found that it was highly recommended by many people on the internet, especially people who suffer from leg pain like I do.
They offer a huge selection of products including sleeves that are designed to help relieve symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendinitis as well as products that provide support while exercising. I experience leg pain mostly in the arch of my foot, my ankle, and my calves so I decided to try their Performance Calf Sleeve, Performance Foot Sleeve, and Performance Foot & Calf Sleeve.
I found out of all three I really prefer the Foot & Calf Sleeve as it provided the best relief. They are designed to improve circulation which can help prevent pain and swelling. It also uses Compression Zone Technology which combines the benefits of medical grade orthopedic bracing support with the power of graduated compression. I LOVE this product also because they are safe to sleep in them which helps me get a good nights rest because I often experience a lot of leg pain at night.
My first concern before trying them was the fact that my calves are large and that other products I have tried in the past either didn’t fit or rolled once I put them on. All three of the sleeves I tried fit well and did not roll even while sleeping! I also decided that multiple sizes would be a good idea because sometimes my legs do swell so the size medium and large come in handy. I am very impressed and these are definitely one of my top go-to items in my chronic pain toolkit.
You can purchase the items listed above on their website, the foot & calf sleeve pictured sells for $59.99.
