Who Needs Compression Stockings?

You might be surprised at how many people you know who would benefit from receiving compression stockings and socks. In addition to helping treat conditions such as diabetes and lymphedema, compression stockings are helpful and often necessary additions to many people’s wardrobe. Compression socks work because of their special design. They are made up of strong material that fits tightly at the foot, but relaxes at the knee. The socks then help blood to flow from the legs and feet, which often become swollen, and redirects the blood path back to the heart, which helps contribute to better overall health.

When thinking about birthdays, holidays and other special occasions, these special people in your life may appreciate the gift of comfortable compression socks.

 

Athletes

Athletes who visit Head To Foot Oasis say sports compression socks provide benefits for all kinds of athletic activity. For starters, the socks delay muscle soreness until after a workout or a game, allowing athletes to push themselves to their very highest level of performance. After exercise, sports compression socks then increase circulation in the feet, ankles and legs, helping built-up lactic acid to disperse quickly. Runners and other athletes tell us that compression socks provide additional energy and oxygen to the muscles, which allows for a faster recovery from strenuous training, and a quicker turnaround time, allowing them to get back to their game.
