Who Can Benefit from the Use of Compression Socks?

#1: People with legs that feel fatigued too often. Compression leg wear can also help combat leg swelling. As the pace of life keeps gathering steam, many men and women find that the freshness they need to keep up with their lives is not there when they need it. Compression socks are a good answer for people who don’t want to accept fatigue or swelling as something they “just have to live with.”

#2: People who want to relieve symptoms and slow the progress of varicose veins. Use of compression leg wear is a proven method for combating varicose veins and other venous disorders.  Here is a shocking statistic: It is estimated that more than 80 million Americans suffer from some form of venous disorder. And statistics also show that while 1/3 of Americans over age 45 suffer from vein disease, only 4% are being treated! It is time to close that shameful gap and take vein-related diseases seriously. 

#3: People who sit at desks all day as part of their jobs. The legs are the farthest in your body from the heart. This means that when a person’s activity level is lower, the legs are what suffer the most fatigue and potential medical problems. Please note that standing all day in the same position can lead to similar fatigue and swelling. Sometimes due to job conditions and other factors outside your control, you can’t be as active as you like. Compression socks are a way to re-assert control over how your legs feel.

#4: People who travel a lot. Not only can compression socks keep travelers legs fresher, they also guard against a serious medical condition that in some rare cases is fatal...Deep Vein Thrombosis or more commonly known as DVT.

#5: Pregnant women. Not only can compression socks keep aching legs at bay, but it also can prevent those ugly vein issues.

#6: People who have a medical condition that can be improved by compression stockings. If you have leg problem, particularly involving fatigue or related to veins, ask your doctor if compression socks are part of the solution.
