What Are Compression Socks?
Compression socks are knee-high-length socks designed to put light pressure onto the lower legs and ankles. What this light pressure does is allows for improved blood circulation resulting in less water retention, reduced inflammation, and better circulation back to the heart. Poor blood flow to the legs puts stress on the heart and can result in issues such as varicose veins and lymphoedema. Compression socks can help remedy these issues but also prevent them which is why they are beneficial for both younger and older adults alike. If you have a job that requires you to sit for long hours or stand for long hours, compression socks can improve your overall circulation and health.
Compression Sock Benefits
Compression socks have many different benefits which is why doctors commonly recommend them. Some of these benefits include:
- Increasing blood circulation to the legs, taking stress off the heart
- Decreasing inflammation and swelling of the lower legs and ankles
- Improved drainage of your lymphatic system
- Managing health concerns such as low blood pressure and orthostatic hypotension
- Reducing the amount of blood pulling into the legs
- Preventing issues such as deep vein thrombosis, venous ulcers, and varicose veins
Who Should Wear Compression Socks?
Compression socks can offer benefits to a wide range of different people living different lifestyles. Compression socks for women and compression socks for men offer the same benefits. Athletes can see the benefits of using compression socks to improve their overall workouts and speed up their recovery. Many pro athletes make use of them in their day-to-day training practices. Those who are unable to walk and are stuck in a wheelchair can benefit from wearing compression socks as they improve blood flow and reduce swelling in the legs. This will also help keep their lymphatic system strong since it relies on movement for adequate drainage. Those who have a career in flight or frequently fly can benefit from reducing the likelihood of developing blood clots and deep vein thrombosis. Pilots, flight attendants, and passengers can make use of these amazing socks. When used in the morning, pregnant women can alleviate painful swelling in their legs which is all too common for expecting mamas. Hormones increase inflammation and water retention but improved blood circulation can prevent this. Aging adults as well as people who are on their feet long hours every day or stuck behind a desk can benefit too.
