Known Health Benefits of Compression Socks & Stockings

Improving blood flow

Compression stockings can help improve blood circulation by squeezing the muscles and blood vessels. That helps the blood to move more efficiently through the leg and back to the heart. Compression stockings can help increase blood circulation throughout your body, which helps boost your energy levels and reduce swelling, tiredness, or soreness in your legs and lower body. Improved blood circulation can also reduce the risk of developing blood clots and helps to prevent the development of varicose veins and support any varicose veins that you already have.

All-Day Comfort and Support

Compression stockings can offer immediate benefits, preventing tired and achy feet and ward off swelling or muscle fatigue, or easing swollen legs at the end of the day. You could wear Compression stockings all day long to maintain a healthy increase in circulation. Wearing Compression stockings regularly can help counter the damaging effects of high venous pressure and allow the blood to circulate more freely.

Prevents /reduce swelling and pain

Compression stockings are made to help control swelling in the lower legs, ankles, and feet. Benefits of compression stockings include helping to squeeze these areas to prevent the build-up of fluid in the tissue because this build-up of fluid can be very painful. Compression socks are an effective way to reduce swollen feet and can provide relief when worn throughout the day.

Maternity relief

Sore feet, ankle/leg swelling, leg cramps, general leg achiness, and even varicose veins are common discomforts that many pregnant women can experience. Pregnancy compression socks can help reduce discomfort in your feet and ankles, support your cardiovascular system by promoting good blood flow, and are a proven way to prevent varicose veins during pregnancy.
During pregnancy, not everyone wants to wear tights so we can help advise to find a suitable alternative compression sock or stocking that will still provide adequate support. The VENOSAN® 4000 Maternity Tights are the best seller on the Venocare website.

Travel relief

Lack of mobility when travelling causes low blood flow and puts a person at risk of developing dangerous blood clots. The increased circulation brought on by travel compression socks helps lessen the feeling of lower body fatigue, reduces swelling, achiness, and soreness post-travel. Wearing travel compression socks during travel will help your legs have proper blood circulation and has been shown to help reduce the risk of developing blood clots or Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).

Preventing Deep Vein Thrombosis and Blood Clots

Compression socks are highly effective in treating and stopping the progression of oedema, blood clotting, thrombosis and varicose veins in the vascular system. The benefit of wearing compression socks is the reduced risk of clot formation in your veins. As the blood circulation improves, it becomes difficult for blood to remain stagnant and pool in the blood vessels leading to blood clotting. Compression socks are one of the many ways to prevent deep vein thrombosis.

Speed up recovery from injury or workout

Compression socks improve the speed of recovery for your muscles after exercise, they reduce muscle fatigue and allow better performance during long workouts due to the increase in freshly oxygenated blood. Wearing compression socks while exercising can greatly reduce the chances of injury and muscle cramping. Professional and amateur athletes are catching on to the benefits of wearing compression socks during training, workouts, and recovery.

Reduce Varicose Veins

Compression stockings help to prevent the development of varicose veins, support any varicose veins that you already have, and prevent varicose veins from getting worse. Compression stockings also support vein recovery after a varicose or spider vein treatment. In some cases, compression stockings can even reduce the appearance of blue, bulging veins and help with underlying circulatory conditions. Compression stockings will not cure the condition, but they are known to reduce the aching, swelling, and discomfort associated with it.
