Graduated compression socks apply a tighter amount of pressure near your ankle and then apply less and less compression as the sock moves up the leg. This way, socks naturally help to push blood back up the leg from the ankle to the thigh and the rest of the body as a way of counteracting pooling, clots and leg swelling.
Compression socks were initially designed to help improve blood-flow in post-surgical patients, diabetics, people with circulatory issues, varicose veins, swelling and pain. These people were usually bed-ridden and completely inactive, so they needed a tight fitting sock to help blood circulate and return to the heart, preventing pooling, blood clots and swelling in their lower extremities. Now, compression socks aren’t just for people recovering from injury and surgery. Modern technology such as the new addition of copper ions embedded into compression socks have made them increasingly popular amongst athletes, nurses, marathon runners, world travelers, mothers to be, baby boomers and outdoor adventurers!
Our socks can go straight into the washing machine without bleach or fabric softener (hang to dry in order to prevent stiffness).
We recommend you buy 2 pairs so you can still heal your legs while the first pair is being washed. You should wear your compression socks consistently every day if you want to see visible, fast results.
