Get back to not thinking about your feet.
What are they?
Compressions socks are stretchable stockings that apply gentle pressure over the calf and ankles to promote blood flow. These can help prevent blood clots, reduce pain, and assist in wound healing.
Different compression strengths can be determined and prescribed by a doctor to suit a patient’s specific needs.
How do they work?
Compression hosiery works by gently squeezing the legs which increase the pressure in the tissues beneath the skin. This increased pressure reduces excess leakage of fluid from the capillaries and increases the absorption of fluid by the capillaries and lymphatic vessels.
Compression also reduces the ability of superficial vents to expand, which prevents blood from flowing backwards and causing congestion.
They have been clinically proven to improve blood circulation, reduce swelling, prevent ulcer, prevent blood clots in the legs, reduce pain, reduce varicose veins, and improve lymphatic drainage.
