The Benefits of Compression Socks

What are the benefits of graduated compression socks?

  • Prevents swelling - The blood going back towards your heart has to fight against gravity, which can become more difficult if you're spending a lot of time standing, sitting, or have a condition that affects blood circulation (eg. pregnancy or heart disease). This will result in fluids pooling at the lowest part of your body, the feet. Compression socks gently squeeze your legs to aid this flow of blood and fluids back towards the heart.
  • Alleviates pain & fatigue - Improving the flow of fluids from the tissues in the legs and feet helps to alleviate both pain and tiredness in the legs. Both the circulation of fresh blood and the prevention of swollen tissues go a long way to increase comfort throughout the day.
  • Prevents spider & varicose veins - Veins have tiny valves to prevent blood from flowing backwards as it pushes against gravity. These valves can fail when someone has sluggish circulation in their legs due to long hours standing and various other situations or conditions. When these valves fail, it causes the blood to pool in the veins, stretching then. Eventually, these stretched veins will become enlarged and discolored, making them varicose or spider veins. Compression socks are the #1 treatment for varicose veins because they are an immediate aid to improve circulation, preventing blood from flowing backwards, which results in healthy, vibrant legs.
  • Shortens recovery time after exercise - The flow of freshly oxygenated blood and the removal of waste products are vitally important to muscle recovery after exercise. Compression socks improve circulation and, therefore, ensure that your body's natural recovery systems work optimally while you rest.
