Keep Your Legs Healthy and Happy with Compression Socks
Compression socks – or stockings – are a great way to keep your legs healthy. Their primary therapeutic benefit is from graduated, medical grade compression that improves circulation of blood in the leg.
These days, everyone from athletes to people who sit or stand for long periods at work are using compression stockings to prevent discomfort and keep legs feeling fresh and energized.
Frequently Asked Questions
We partner with some of the most reputable companies providing modern compression stockings for a variety of needs in a variety of styles.
What Are Some Of The Benefits Of Wearing Compression Stockings?
Because properly fitted compression stockings encourage healthy blood and fluid flow in the legs, wearers report reduced swelling in the lower legs or ankles, they experience less “heaviness” and even after a long day, legs feel energized.
Athletes have adopted compression socks as part of their conditioning. Compression socks support muscle recovery and increase oxygen delivery to muscles during a workout.
Can Compression Socks Treat My Varicose Veins?
Compression socks can be an important aspect of conservative care for varicosities in the leg. Since compression socks encourage blood flow, they can assist weakened valves in the leg vein to carry blood more efficiently.
For some vein procedures, wearing a compression stocking/sock for a period after treatment helps support healing in the leg.
How Do I Select The Right Grade Of Compression?
Depending on your condition, you will want to make sure that you purchase the highest quality stocking with the right graduated compression to improve your circulation. You also want to make sure that the stocking is comfortable enough to wear during your typical activities. Therefore we always measure each patient and fit compression socks/stockings to that individual.
If you have any questions about selecting the right compression stocking to meet your health and wellness goals, our staff would be happy to help you make the correct choice so you get the most out of your new compression socks.
