Compression sports recovery socks are designed to provide graduated pressure on the lower legs and feet. By compressing the surface veins, arteries, and muscles, the circulating blood is forced through narrower channels and the arterial pressure is increased, causing more blood to return to the heart and less blood to pool in the feet. In graduated compression products, the most pressure is felt at the foot and the pressure lessens slightly as the product moves up to the calf and thigh.
Our compression recovery socks are made with different levels of graduated pressure. The lightest pressure level starts at a low 8-15 mmHg, and our heaviest pressure level offered without a prescription is 50-60 mmHg for those who are required to wear compression gear for recovery.
Whether you need casual compression for daily activities, medium compression products for athletic recovery and injury prevention, or high pressure for severe circulatory conditions, we have the right fit for you.
Contact our professional staff if you need help finding the perfect fit for your individual situation. Compression recovery socks should place gentle and constant pressure on the area without causing discomfort.
Compression socks are recommended for people whose occupations require long periods of standing, like nurses and healthcare workers, clerks, food service personnel, and others.
Experts suggest passengers on long flights should wear compression socks to prevent circulatory problems like deep vein thrombosis, leg cramps, and edema.
People who suffer from lymphedema, a condition that occurs when the lymph vessels are unable to adequately drain lymphatic fluid, are also prime candidates for wearing compression gear for recovery. Compression socks are often used to help prevent blood clots from forming in the extremities. From athletes to pregnant women and everyone in between, compression socks help prevent swelling and increase circulation.
