Compression Socks

Compression Socks
Many people wear compression socks for medical reasons like varicose veins, post-surgical recovery, poor circulation, and swelling, but actually almost anyone can benefit from wearing compression socks.  If you need a compression sock for medical reasons please talk to your doctor before purchase.

Certain activities like prolonged sitting, being on your feet all day, sports and strenuous physical activity, can disrupt the normal blood flow through your legs, which can result in discomfort, swelling, and fatigue in your legs and feet. Compression socks help minimise that disruption, helping to prevent the discomfort and fatigue it can cause. 

When you’re wearing a compression sock, you’ll notice the sock is a bit tighter around the foot and ankle, and then relaxes slightly up through the calf of the sock. This is an intentional fit. This lessening of compression up the leg is called graduated compression, and it gently massages your muscles and helps to keep the blood flowing through your legs.
Compression socks are also a valuable tool for athletes looking to improve their performance and enhance recovery. By promoting blood circulation and reducing muscle fatigue, these socks can help athletes reach their full potential while minimising the risk of injury. Whether you're a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, investing in a pair of compression socks can make a significant difference in your athletic journey.
