HOW DO COMPRESSION SOCKS WORK?
Compression socks work by having built in gradient pressure, meaning they are tighter at the foot and ankle and get looser as they move up. This helps to decrease pooling of fluids in the lower limbs and promotes circulation.
The gradient compression in the socks combats the effect gravity has on the venous symptoms as it labours to return blood back to the heart.
WHO SHOULD WEAR COMPRESSION SOCKS?
Anyone who spends prolonged periods of time standing, sitting, traveling on airplanes or in vehicles can benefit from the use of compression stockings. If you experience heavy, achy or restless legs you can benefit from the use of stockings.
Athletes can also reap the benefits of compression by encouraging blood flow and therefore reducing the time needed for lactic acid recovery.
Those who display visual signs of vein disease such as swelling and varicose veins should wear compression stockings.
