Fight Edema with Compression Socks

Compression socks continue to rise in popularity all around the world. People are experiencing pain relief and other health benefits from compression socks. We know they can help with leg fatigue, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, foot pain, and more. You can also fight edema with compression socks. 

What Is Edema?

The Mayo Clinic says edema is "swelling caused by excess fluid trapped in your body's tissues." The legs are one of the main areas affected by edema. 

Edema can be a symptom of an underlying disease, so you should visit a doctor if you think you have it. But whether it's caused by an underlying disease, too much salt intake, a side effect from medication, it has to be dealt with. And one of the ways to treat edema is to wear compression socks

Compression Socks vs. Edema

Edema causes the tissue in our body to retain fluid. Compression socks apply pressure to those areas and that prevents edema from setting in. If you're already suffering from edema, the pressure from compression socks will make that fluid move. Think of pressing on a balloon that's not fully inflated. You put pressure on one end of the balloon and all the air is forced to the other side. That's how compression socks work with blood and fluids. 

Compression Socks Relieve Pain and Swelling

The fluid and blood buildup in your legs, ankles, and feet will certainly give you that "heavy legs" feeling. It will also cause pain because of the pressure from swelling. As compression socks do their job, swelling decreases and so does the pain in your legs. Compression socks increase blood flow, and good circulation is key to avoiding swelling and pain. That leads to your feet and legs feeling fresh and ready to go.
