Performance lycra shorts

We have a range of performance lycra shorts available at Orthotics UK. Our standard performance lycra shorts are a performance enhancing garment that improve postural alignment of the pelvis by creating awareness of the position of the body. They are designed to improve running technique, provide core stability and help the wearer move efficiently as well as providing compression to reduce fatigue. We also have rehabilitation performance lycra shorts which are for those recovering from pelvic or groin injuries. They improve stability, increase your awareness of the position of your body and help to improve postural alignment, reducing the risk of reinjury.
