How Do Compression Socks Work?
There are many companies that make compression socks these days and the reason for that is that there are so many positive uses for them. Doctors recommend compression garments for a variety of ailments and that’s because they work to improve circulation and blood flow. Simple factors like being on your feet all day with jobs like nursing or waitressing can take it’s toll on your legs, ankles and feet. Improved circulation with the use of compression socks and stockings can help to alleviate tired and achy legs and swelling of the feet and ankles.
The way that these gradient compression socks are designed helps to push the blood upwards from your feet towards your heart. Compression products feel a little tight at first but that’s how they work. The compression measured in mmHg (these Jobst socks are a moderate 15 to 20mmHg) have the highest pressure at the ankle or middle of the foot and it gradually lessons as the fabric goes up the leg. This acts as kind of a manual elevator that pushes the blood up through the veins towards the heart. Improved circulation allows oxygen and nutrients to flow throughout the body and provide organs and body systems with the goodness that they need.
One of the reasons that travellers wear compression socks and stockings is the fact that sitting (especially on long flights) can cause slower blood flow and the chance of the blood pooling and creating blood clots in the leg veins. This brings us to another health benefit of improved circulation which is the prevention and lessening of varicose veins. Varicose veins can be caused when the leg veins bulge just below the skin and become clearly visible. Not something that is very attractive.
