Compression Stockings/Socks at PhysioMax Wellness
The benefits of wearing compression socks are widely known among people suffering from leg or foot problems. For example, people with arthritis or diabetes find great relief wearing compression socks. The benefits, however, can be enjoyed by everyone, including active individuals.
As we get older, we are more prone to circulation problems; this simply is a natural part of the aging process. One’s legs become weak over time, leading to veins in the legs circulating the same blood over and over. This, in turn, leads to painful health conditions that can escalate into more serious health conditions.
Compression stocking therapy helps boost circulation which brings much-needed nutrients and oxygenated blood into the legs and feet. Many people who start wearing compression socks report their legs feel invigorated and free of the pain and weakness they have been experiencing. Wearing the socks can further help reduce the amount of damage suffered to the legs and regenerate damaged tissues. Women and men suffering from conditions such as varicose veins, arthritis, leg ulcers and lymphoedema can all benefit from the healing properties of compression.
Many people sit or stand for long periods of time at work or home which can result in painful swelling or numbness in the feet/ankles. This swelling makes wearing shoes particularly uncomfortable, further worsening the pain and side effects.
Using compression socks regularly is an excellent way to take preventative measures for your health and ensure that you enjoy an active lifestyle with minimal or no pain. Even when your feet are at rest for extended periods, compression stockings provide a welcome circulation boost and help eliminate pain, swelling and fatigue. The compression effect works to massage the muscles of the legs in a gentle manner, throughout the entire day.
Some individuals inherit pain / sensitivity conditions from family members and are welcome candidates for medical compression benefits. Wearing these socks doesn’t have to be a chore, either as these high quality socks can be made to look fashionable while still providing excellent medical benefits.
Most people with extended health care benefits are allowed coverage for compression stockings, usually 2-4 pairs per year. If you have leg discomfort due to poor circulation, consider compression stockings and feel the difference right away!
