Benefits of Wearing Compression Socks
Whilst walking is the easiest form of exercise, foot or leg pain can result in chronic conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, Shin Splints & more.
While you may wear an ordinary stocking for style or to protect your legs, compression stockings have an elastic fabric designed to fit tightly around the ankles, legs, and thighs. These stockings are tighter around the ankle and less tight around the calves and thighs.
They can improve your blood flow and lessen pain and swelling in your legs. They can also lower your chances of getting deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a kind of blood clot, and other circulation problems.
One study followed 1,681 people and consisted of 19 trials, including 9 with participants undergoing general surgery and 6 with participants undergoing orthopedic surgery. Among those wearing compression stockings before and after surgery, only 9 percent developed DVT, compared with 21 percent of those who didn’t wear compression stockings.
Medical grades compression socks can provide therapeutic pressure, support and enhanced comfort. It could make all the difference.
