They aren’t just for GRANDMA anymore! Have you noticed runners and hikers in knee high socks? Years of testimony have gone by — from many different walks of life. They hiked, ran, worked, flew, drove, and rehabilitated while wearing these socks. The praise of comfort, fit, pain relief, wicking, and ability to aid recovery AREN’T even my favorite 3 reasons why you should try a pair of compression socks. -And you should, every day.
Why You Should Wear Compression Socks
Compression Socks Relieve Sore Feet
On your feet for 12 hours is inevitable for some medical professionals. Nurses keep supplies for their patient’s relief in their pockets, compression socks are like gear for your self. HOW? Compression socks apply pressure to your feet and lower legs preventing your blood pooling. This supports the teeny tiny vein valves that return blood up your leg. When too much blood is pooled in your legs those valves get tired then making them throb! Anyone getting a visual? -I tried drawing one but this one is better:
Compression Socks Keep Legs Looking Young
Compression socks reduce spider and varicose vein formation. Age is a sign of wisdom but who are we kidding? We want a body of eternal youth & style til we die.
Compression Socks Defy Your Dresscode
Tons of clinics and facilities are implementing dresscodes. Except for a fun badge or headband, most color coded office employees look the same. Boring. Compression socks come in a variety of patterns and colors. You can get really wacky and fun between your shoes and pant hem. Some scrubs like the KOI lindsey pant even allows you to hike up the pant leg with a handy bungee.
You wont have to ask many colleagues to find one of them wearing compression socks. If you are young, start now for prevention & if you are not so young, what are you waiting for? There is a method to the maddness. Try it!
