In order to understand the benefits of compression socks, it’s important to know exactly what they are and how they work. This will help you determine if compression stockings are right for you.
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!
This is because copper comes with a whole list of added benefits for your comfort and health! Copper ions added to compression socks turn them into natural, non-chemical, long-lasting, germ-fighting material that protects your skin from a host of bacteria, odor and potential infections.
