Compression Benefits at Work

Compression Benefits at Work

Contrary to popular opinion, compression socks can be the BEST work accessory…hear us out!

How many hours a day do you spend at the office sitting in a chair? Standing on hard concrete floors helping customers? Or running up an down halls tending to patients? How often do you really get a chance to take a walk or stretch during your workday? Probably not as often as you should…or want to.

In a perfect world, we would all be able to leave our job to stretch our legs more than once a day…but let’s be real this probably isn’t the case!

We all long for the end of the workday when we can finally go home, take our shoes off, and kick up our feet. We, at Alpha Sole, figured it wasn’t worth waiting until the end of a long shift to find comfort!

Compression socks squeeze the leg tissues and walls of the veins, helping blood return to the heart and other parts of the body. Improving the flow and lymph can help reduce all kinds of unwanted symptoms. Even if you don’t have a specific health benefit in mind, compression socks can improve the comfort and health of everyone. 

Research shows that decreased blood circulation for an extended period of time can actually create potential long-term health concerns and issues. So, we designed our compression socks with graduated compression. Graduated compression applies a tighter amount of pressure near your ankle and then applies 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. If your blood can circulate properly, you can work towards avoiding blood clots; which helps your heart work the way it should and allows you to recover from the day and be a healthier you! 

Whether you are looking for relief from swelling or need some extra circulation help, give our compression socks a try at your job and find out just how much you can benefit from changing something so minor in your routine! You can thank us later! 😉
