Chronic groin pain, Osteitis Pubis (OP ) and groin issues predominantly occur in sports where athletes engage in kicking, rapid changing of direction and stopping and starting at speed.

Compression shorts and tights have been worn by sprinters for years, and compression socks and leggings are increasingly popular amongst distance runners. But what does “compression” do and why should I buy it?
Compression has been used in the treatment of swelling conditions such as lymphedema, vascular issues, varicose veins and Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) - a condition that affects circulation and blood flow.

Osteitis pubis is the most common inflammatory condition of the pubic symphysis and may present as acute abdominal, pelvic, or groin pain.
